1. Listening to chants
The teacher chants the chant aloud and asks the students to stand up / clap/ jump when they hear a particular word. This is particularly useful for reinforcing key vocabulary from the story.

2. Modelling chants
To make the drilling of the chants an enjoyable activity, the teacher can have the students repeat each line of the chant, 'as a feeling' eg. in a happy/sad/tired/excited/sleepy voice.This can help to develop intonation whilst making learning fun.

3. Interactive chants
Many of the chants feature key phrases from characters in the story. Teachers can divide the class into groups to represent characters from the story and have each group repeat phrases accordingly.
