IF I had a Million Dollars

Classic teaching song for "IF". A good example of making materials that use pictures to compliment the language and facilitate acquisition. Let me know if I did a good job! Find this on our Karaoke Page Also use this lyric sheet!

Hi, David. I liked it. I sometimes use the videos that I find enchanting as a few-minute- intro while the children are settling down, if it doesn't have much to do with the topic of the lesson that day (but I still want to share it with them.) Thanks for the fun contributions!

Excellent. I'm gonna use it. I only wish you could have found stacks of Canadian dollars ;)

Never thought about the Cnd. dollars! Especially appropriate given the strength of the Cnd. dollar ( to my own misfortune!).

I'm going to redo the conversion - something wrong at the beginning. But I had been wanting to do this one for awhile. There are several on youtube but the pictures aren't too great......I guess that's my style - if I see something and think I can do it better....I gotta do it!

Hi David,
Used this today. I'll send you the task sheet I made. Nothing special but you might find something of value in it. Most of the time was spent on a cloze task I made. The pictures and the subtitles you provided made it much easier for the students to do. When we were taking up the answers I helped them understand some of the humour. For example I told them that I ate a lot of Kraft Dinner when I was a university student because it was cheap, and I wasn't unusual. Furthermore, I loved KD and I still do. The joke is that KD is poor peoples' food (in Canada, at least) but people love it nonetheless and so if one were to become rich they wouldn't give it up. They'd eat more. They seemed to enjoy this story and some could relate even though most still live at home with their parents and they want for nothing.
At the end of the lesson I asked the students to post a comment about the song on my blog. You can see what they said here:
Thanks again!!

Thanks for replying Michael! Great to know it was used successfully and it is a standard in my own song kit.

Also gave me a good chance to visit your blog. You are doing some great stuff there! Wow! A great example for others of how to use technology and learning and give students really rich and varied content. Also great that they can form a community and access the content you teach online - at their leisure.

Cheers, got to work...if ONLY I had a million dollars

David

PS. I hope you don't mind the attention but you've been labeled "member of the month" in our next newsletter I'm sending out now. Well deserved.

Is it possible to share Michael Stout's worksheet? Is that cool Michael? I always liked to get inspired by other people's work.

This song is great, and I will be using it soon.

Hi Acorn Revolution.
Thanks for your interest. I just made a fill-in from the lyric sheet. I have it saved in a folder on the university's
server. I'll be there today or tomorrow. I'll post the worksheet asap.

Hi David,
Sorry it's taken me so long to respond. I was honoured to be member of the month. Thank you.
