The body

Lately Jordi has been saying lots of new English words and phrases, surprising us all with how quickly he learnt so many new things. He has also been extra good at sitting down and doing his homework too, which means we can sit down and directly learn new vocabulary as opposed to him learning the words via context and listening.   That said, it is important to teach in a variety of ways. So I started with teaching Jordi the children song “Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes”, and pointing the body parts the lyrics were referring to. Then I drew Jordi a cartoon version of himself, which we both labelled. Since we´ve done this activity, Jordi has started using most of the words in his daily speech.
