Entertain your pupils with some seasonal songs. They help children acquire the vocabulary connected with special days, holidays and celebrations.
Some festivals are common and similar all over the world, but some are celebrated only in the English-speaking countries. By means of songs you can show your students a little bit of culture and ignite their interest in different countries.
Worth trying, huh?
