Teaching English Jukebox is a Padlet, reviewed here, with links to many videos useful for teaching English and grammar concepts through song. Each Padlet entry includes the name and artist of the video along with a suggestion for its use in teaching English. Some concepts on the site include past tense, idioms, and story-telling. Click any entry to go to the shared video. Some of the videos reside on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, the videos may not be viewable. You could always view them at home and bring them to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as Freemake Video Converter, reviewed here, to download the videos from YouTube.

tag(s): grammar (213), grammar review (39), idioms (45), parts of speech (68), stories and storytelling (32)

In the Classroom

Browse through these suggestions with your class with a projector or interactive whiteboard, or have students explore on their own. Ask students to find their own videos demonstrating the use of English concepts and add them to this Padlet, or create one of your own. Use this site as inspiration for using video to teach other subjects - find songs that include a science concept such as the environment, or songs that mention places and countries to find on a map.

Discover what is happening all around the world, live as it takes place. EarthCam's network includes live webcams featuring weather, traffic, animals, and more. Discover webcams by topic or explore popular offerings. Scroll further down the home page to choose webcams on a clickable map by location.

Previewing all videos before sharing with the class would be wise.

In the Classroom

This site would be an excellent addition to any science, social studies, or world cultures class. Teachers click on a webcam in different parts of the world to see things like weather and basic geography. In early elementary, use webcams to introduce the world visually with a projector or on an interactive whiteboard. Select specific webcams and create shortcuts on classroom computer desktops for students to "see what's happening" on a certain continent as you study the seven continents. Use animal webcams for students to observe animal behavior and keep a "lab journal" of what they see. Use this site to visit different areas that have been effected by natural disasters. Share the videos on an interactive whiteboard or with a projector.
