  • I like this poster but I think the children should be facing the other way so the right and is on the right and the left hand is on the left

    • Hi Lynda,
      Thank you for your comment and suggestion.
      To avoid any confusion, we have updated the poster by removing the “right” and “left” speech bubbles.
      We hope your students find this poster helpful when learning the difference between left and right.
      Kind regards,

  • Maybe having a link on u-tube with music will make this song easier? Thank you.

  • This is a great children’s song. I am a teacher and I always try to prepare my lessons more carefully. I recently found some great kids songs on YouTube and decided to create a themed playlist. I used YouTube to Mp3 converter and got mp3 songs from YouTube in excellent quality. I used this playlist for my lessons and the kids loved it. You can try free online converter to get any youtube songs to mp3.
