"Sports Song"
by Richard Graham &
Will Jasprizza

What sports do you play?
What sports do you play?
What sports do you play?
What sports do you play?

I play tennis,
I play soccer,
I play basketball,
I play volleyball.

( Repeat Chorus)

I play table tennis,
I play badminton,
I play rugby,
I play baseball.

( Repeat Chorus)

In the classroom or at home...

Kids love to play sports, and they love to learn the names of some of their favourites! Plus it's a great internationalisation lesson as you can talk about what sports are popular in different countries!

Remember the gestures!



I play tennis,






I play soccer,




I play basketball,



I play volleyball.


What sports do you play?
What sports do you play?
What sports do you play?
What sports do you play?




I play table tennis,



I play badminton,




I play rugby,




I play baseball.


Recommended Games: Stopwatch Game, Sticky Fingers

A great way to teach the sports names is to play the stopwatch game. When you introduce one sport, the kids pass that sport's ball around the class saying, for example, "What sports do you play?", "I play tennis" whilst passing a tennis ball! See which ball gets passed round the fastest

Then the kids have a go using the top section of the software to make sure they have learnt all the names. Then they have a go at the quiz! One of the best ways is to get the kids on different computers, the teacher says "Go!" and they race to see who can complete the quiz first!
