I haven't been able to post as much I'd like the past month or so because we've had a lot of projects going on at our school, Knock Knock English. Hence the heavy doses of youtube, the lazy bloggers' new best friend. Hope you are enjoying the clips.
Our second CD, Super Simple Songs 2 is available at iTunes now (direct link). Please check it out if you have toddlers in your life. It's ideal for following up on and reinforcing some of the basic skills they are learning in pre-school and kindergarten...counting, weather, shapes, body awareness, etc. And the songs are at a level where even emerging speakers will take pride in being able to sing them.
If you already have the CD, please take a moment to write a short review for us at iTunes or CDBaby. We'd really appreciate it.
In other Super Simple Song news, we've got a website up. We're still building and adding and probably always will be, but if you are interested in some activity ideas to accompany our Super Simple Songs, you'll find them at www.supersimplesongs.com.
A big thanks to everyone who has downloaded our podcast, こどもと英語で話そう！. We've had over 1,000 subscribers in the first few weeks and it's been a lot of fun making them. Again, it's primarily for Japanese speakers interested in learning some simple English expressions to use with their children, but English speakers can pick up some simple Japanese as well. You can subscribe through iTunes here. Our fifth episode will be out in a couple days and it focuses on simple expressions you can use when your child needs to use the bathroom. If you ever wondered how to say pee-pee and poo-poo in Japanese (come on, you know you did), your lucky day is almost here.
And finally, a big thanks to all of our students and their parents. We've had a great first term. Thanks for all your efforts and making classes such a blast!
Have a great weekend!
