Download the blank weekly calendar here.
At Kids&Us we want your children to stay in contact with English at home! That’s why we’ve created a content series that we want to share with all of our families called Stay at Home. Crafts, videos, songs, dance moves, recipes and various activities in English for children. We’re making everything we think could help to make these activities more readily available to the public.
We would like to do our small part to help make this situation as bearable as possible. These are tough times, but in the cases where mothers and fathers are at home with their children, they also give us a unique opportunity.
Every week we’ll share new ideas that include planned activities for the following days. We hope it helps!
Songs and dances in English for each moment of the day to make your routine fun
Singing makes everything better! We want to give you songs to make your routines more fun and to help you learn healthy habits which are so important nowadays, in a light-hearted way. Specifically, these are listening activities for children in English that will help them learn every day.
Song in English for children: “Fuel it!”
All the superheroes speak English. What about you? Put on your cape and become whoever you want to be, like, a superhero, for example! With English you will go far, so let your potential flow and build on your dreams. Let’s sing the infant’s song “Fuel it!” together, in English.
Song in English for boys and girls: “Essentially Us”
Over the years, we have consolidated our essence and shaped it into a unique way of learning English based on a natural method that is adapted to the growth and development of our students and helps them to realise their full potential. At Kids&Us, babies feel in English, children play in English, teenagers are inspired by English, and young people think in English. They have the potential, and we have the formula: The English Formula. Sing our song in English for kids with us: "Essentially Us"!
Song in English for boys and girls: “Wings of Learning”
Life is a journey that starts when we are born, and English is our luggage for travelling far, it gives us wings to achieve what we want. Try singing the “Wings of Learning” song. To help us grow, walk and fly!
Choreography for boys and girls: “Your tribe”
Let’s dance! We are going to join the Kids&Us tribe and dance as a family. This tribe is numerous and diverse, and it is connected through its language, English, which contributes to communication and understanding. Don’t miss this body percussion choreography for the “Your tribe speaks English” song!
Song in English for boys and girls “Heart of a Warrior”
Last week we became warriors, and now it's time to prove it. Let's sing the song "Heart of a Warrior" together to be real Kids&Us warriors who are brave and smiling! It’s a fantastic song in English for the whole family to sing. Can you make up a dance for it?
Children’s song in English: “I am a Warrior”
At Kids&Us our students are strong and brave warriors. Sing out loud and with pride the “I am a Warrior” song and you will become warriors too! A great song for boys and girls to sing with their family.
Here are the lyrics.
Dance choreography in English for children: “Paint the World”
Will you have a go at dancing to the “Paint the World” choreography? Immerse yourselves in a world of colour and fantasy while you find out the 4 basic Kids&Us colours: turquoise blue, the colour of communication; apple green, the colour of growth and life; black, the colour of protection; and rose red, the colour of life. Let’s dance!

Children’s song in English: “Superhero”
You can do everything you set your mind to do! This was the gist of Superhero, the Kids&Us 2014-15 campaign. Would you like to see how a campaign is designed? Watch the “Making of” video and create your own superhero as you sing the song: “Fuel it!”
Children’s song in English: “Carnival Fever”
Let’s keep the party going! Even in difficult times, we shouldn’t stop smiling, we encourage you to look for the positive and fun aspects of everything we do, because life is like a carnival! Let’s sing the Kids&Us “Carnival Fever” song together.
English Children’s song “Fire of learning”
“Fire of Learning” is a declaration of intent to express the idea that English is a tool for the future that will allow our children to achieve their dreams.
It was the song used in the 2018-2019 Kids&Us campaign entitled The Beauty of Learning, whose aim was to transmit the concept of what is beautiful about the learning process and especially to demonstrate what it means to Kids&Us to see how their students grow and acquire the necessary linguistic abilities to fly high when it’s their time.
The star of the campaign was a travel book that shows our children growing up on the path from birth to the moment that they take the reins of their own lives. This journey reflects natural evolution, the spontaneity of children and their concerns about life. Discover The Beauty of Learning and dance with Kids&Us.
English Children’s song “Cool Off theme song”
To transport ourselves to summertime and all the fun we have in the Cool Off camps, we are giving you this song from Kids&Us summer camps. We hope that we can enjoy more moments like this together again! Shall we sing together?
