- Introducing English to early childhood has been done by a lot of Early Childhood Education institutions. Yet, the teachers lack the media and method to introduce English to the children. Teachers do not have many options of method and media. They use the same printed media repeatedly which makes the teaching process becoming dull and bores the children. Teachers need other alternative media to introduce English to the children in a fun way. Children learn through playing, therefore teachers need to provide interesting method and media to teach. By using dancing and singing, children will not only become interested in the learning process but also received adequate stimulation for their visual, auditory, and motor aspect. Such dancing and singing will be more practical if stored in the compact disk (CD). The aim of the research is to provide a guide for teacher to use and implement the dancing and singing media; to provide an alternative media in introducing English to the children; and to provide an interesting and fun learning experience for the children. Through the three themes of dancing and singing which is close to the children daily life, the teachers are able to develop or create various activities and media in introducing English to children. It also lengthens the range of concentration of the children. As a result, the children’s vocabulary is enhancing.
