One thought on “the shape song

  1. Hello! My name is Van Anh
    First of all, I want to say thank you for sharing your song. The rhythm is very attractive and interesting. And the lyric of song is quite simple so it is easy for students to listen and sing the song.
    However, I think that you should change these shapes by another things such as animals, numbers or colours to attract your students with making the new song. It also is the indirect way to help students to enrich their vocabulary and creat new song with some thing they like.
    One more time, thank you so much! I hope that all of you will become a good teacher in the future.
