About

The #1 ...(TPR dance/song)

Number One** Not your ordinary, endless list - just what's number 1.


The Hokey Pokey

The Hokey Pokey is a standard song and TPR activity in the language classroom. It gets my pick over "Head and Shoulders" just because instead of using just vocabulary / words - it is whole language. Always the superior teaching form. Another one of note and a classic, is "If you're happy and you know it". Get all these in our Kidz Karaoke page. Here's the hokey pokey if you have the karafun player (get it on EFL Classroom 2.0)

Watch Devon of Super Simple Songs, describe how to teach your students this song!



Here, a teacher goes through the paces and persistence of teaching her students to do the Hokey Pokey. Great stuff!
