Our older students are going to save our planet this week, by learning a song to help us save electricity! In doing so we will also get to learn lots of useful vocab of things we use everyday in the house. Remembering to turn things off to save electricity can be hard…but if we actually have to think harder to say ‘Turn it off’ in Chinese, and by making signs in Chinese next to some of our switches…it might help us to not only learn some Chinese…but help us to remember to TURN IT OFF!
Here is the Groovi Pauli song that we will learn.
I made a ‘Turn it off Powerpoint’ with the lyrics of the song on, with images to help students with the meaning of each line. Singing this song with kinaesthetic gesture in class will also help reinforce the meaning. Click here to download the lyric and image Powerpoint Slide Show turn it off pp
This video, Groovi Pauli helps you to understand the song:
Here are some piks of signs that my kids made to stick next to some powerpoints in our home to help us remember to ‘Turn it off’.
