Show the children the song clip and play the song (on your phone or computer) once with the students just listening and doing the actions. Play again and ask the children to sing along.

Explain the activity and do part or all of it as a group/class. Play "Listen and Point" - read the names of the clothing out loud and ask the children to point at the item of clothing. Walk around room to see how the children are doing, help those that are struggling. Spend time with each child. Ask a question about the lesson or what they might be colouring. Encourage each child to either repeat vocabulary and sentences or to produce them independently, depending on their level.
