No holiday has as many classic songs as Christmas does. As Christmas approaches, the songs fill the air, putting everyone in the holiday spirit. However, for young learners, Christmas songs can often be very difficult to sing and understand. Boughs of holly and good tidings can be hard to conceptualize for children with limited vocabularies, and even some of the easier Christmas songs are often too fast for young learners to keep up with.
Super Simple Songs - Christmas includes versions of classic holiday songs made simple for young learners, and new songs we hope will become classics with you. The songs are lyrically and musically appropriate for emerging speakers. In addition to introducing language for the holiday season, the songs also review topics such as counting, parts of the body, simple actions, toys, clothing, and more!
The CD has twelve super simple Christmas songs that are easy enough for toddlers to follow but fun and active enough for older elementary school students to enjoy, too. There are also twelve instrumental sing-along versions, allowing you to personalize the songs. The songs are ideal for parents to use at home or in the car, and for teachers of preschool, kindergarten, primary school, EFL, ESL, special needs, and music-and-movement, for Christmas lessons, parties, and for Christmas performances.
We hope that you will enjoy these songs in your homes and classes during this holiday season and for many years to come.
