Like many teachers of the English language, I like to enrich my lessons with songs and song-based activities. On this site, you’ll find:

•               Song-based activities for beginning and high-beginning students
•               Tips for using songs in the classroom
•               A list of over 150 classroom-friendly songs, organized by theme

The songs and activities coordinate with the lessons in True Stories Behind the Songs (a beginning reading textbook) and More True Stories Behind the Songs (a high-beginning reading textbook), but they would work with other materials and curricula as well.

I’ll be adding material to the site regularly, so please check back to see the newest additions.

If you have a song-based activity or a classroom-friendly song you’d like to share, I’d love to hear from you! Please e-mail me at
