New Video: I See Something Blue by Super Simple Songs

The latest video from the good people at Super Simple Learning (SSL)  is without a doubt a home run. I See Something Blue is a golden oldie from their first album, about which I have previously written here. The young lads I played the video for today positively flew out of their seats to point at the screen and sing along at full volume. Needless to say the animation is stunning, surely among SSL’s best work.

I can’t wait for the sequel.

Oh, and my long-delayed review of the greatest song in all of EFL-dom will be up on the blog within the next few days. Stay tuned!

Top 5 Video List: Bingo

You’ll be singing that classic children’s song Bingo with your young learners sooner or later, so why not choose from among the best to use in your class? After an exhaustive search, ESL Review has separated the wheat from the chaff and come up with its top five picks from YouTube.

5. Bingo by Organic Learning

Slickly produced and sung at a swift pace, Organic Learning‘s version of the song comes in at number 5. Perhaps a little intimidating for first time learners, this song is ideal for older kids who know the song already.

4. Bingo by KidsTV123

KidsTV123 does mellow and slow like nobody else can, and I mean that as a compliment.

3. Bingo by The Mother Goose Club

If live action and puppets is more your thing, then you should watch The Mother Goose Club‘s upbeat version. The girls in my class really respond to the young singer in this video.

2. Bingo by the StoryBots

No list would be complete without the metallic tones of the StoryBots. Beautiful animation and comic characters make for a real attention grabber.

1. Bingo by Super Simple Songs

No real surprise here. The words ‘well crafted’ and ‘adorable’ are almost synonymous with Super Simple Songs, whose version of the song always gets my kids to follow along without the least bit adult encouragement (although not generally like the kids in this video).

And when Christmas comes along Super Simple Songs has S-A-N-T-A, which is also pretty nifty.
