This theme is designed to be a nice, easy bridge between CD3's "Do you like food?" theme and CD4's "Animal Voices" theme.

Once you've "Do you like food?" it's really simple to switch to animals ( a favourite question that kids are always asking) and cures the problem of some kids saying things like "Do you like dog?"

Practice asking the kids the first few questions, and get them to answer yes or no. They'll already know this from the Do you like food? theme, and the point is to get them to answer truthfully. They already also know most of the animal words, but introducing unknown ones in the song works well.

Remember to always ask in the Do you like...? form e.g. it will always be "mice" not "mouse". We'll introduce the singular form later. Doing it this way round makes things a lot easier to understand for the kids. (But not for the teachers, but hey it's the kids that count!)

Then you'll be able to kick in the music nice and loud to get them all excited and genki!



Recommended Game

Then you can play the Genki English version of karuta again as recommended in the Do you like food? theme, but this time use both the animals and foods cards!
