I don’t know if you remember, but I told a story a while back about how I tend to overpronounce things to my youngest class (Teaching Emphatically, March 2008).  It resulted in one of the boys (Kaito) saying, “Don’tchi forget your bag!  Don’tchi forget your jacket!”  Well, recently I was teaching this same class the “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” song.  Remember that one?  Yeah, it’s catchy.  In class, we sing it faster and faster and they just LOVE it.  But do you remember the part that goes, “And eyes and ears and mouth and nose”?  Yes, well now the students are all convinced that they each have 2 eyesands, 2 earsands, a mouthand and a nose.
