Learn all about different foods and improve your students's English with these great sing-a-long vidoes by Busy Beavers. This first video is great for teaching kids all about meals and  "What do you like to eat for...." Read more to find ot how you can use these great videos in your classroom.
 

 
The meal song
 

Although the graphics may be a little simple, I found the videos slow and easy for the students to understand. The songs are also quite simple and repetitive so it's easy for the students to sing a long and read the subtitles as well. They also cover many topics that are useful for everyday English conversation. I usually go through three steps when showing a student a video for the first time.

1. Watch the video together once and see what they can understand.
2. Watch the video, but pause and repeat after each sentence and explain anything they don't understand.
3. Sing the song together.

It's also worth giving the students the link to the song so that they can practise and sing in their free time, and I also recommend singing it a few times throughout the year so that the students don't forget the new words and grammar.

Here are some other videos that I think are worth checking out.
