La combinazione di movimento e musica aiutano molto l’apprendimento di nuove parole in inglese. Ai bambini piace cantare e ballare allo stesso tempo e in inglese troviamo diversi testi che si prestano a questo genere di attività. Un testo che conosciamo anche nella versione italiana è If You’re Happy And You Know Clap Your Hands.

“Se sei felice e tu lo sai batti le mani” inizia così una delle canzoni per bambini più conosciute nelle scuole dell’infanzia. Si canta e si balla, si seguono le indicazioni date dalle strofe e ci si diverte a muoversi al tempo di musica. Impariamo questa canzone in inglese.

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.

If you’re happy and you know it ,

And you really want to show it,

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.

If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet.

If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet.

If you’re happy and you know it, And you really want to show it,

If you’re happy and you know it, stomp your feet.

If you’re happy and you know it, shout hooray.

If you’re happy and you know it, shout hooray.

If you’re happy and you know it, And you really want to show it,

If you’re happy and you know it, shout hooray!

If you’re happy and you know it, do all three!

If you’re happy and you know it, do all three!

If you’re happy and you know it, do all three!
