I need a song!
 

Dear friends,

I need an easy song for teaching  Past Simple Tense ( regular-irregular verbs)
 
Do you know such a song?
Thanks for your help!
 
P.S.
These are my favorite songs
 
to teach past tense but they are a bit difficult for my 6th graders.
 
Celine Dion / Because you loved me
 
Anne Murray / You needed me

Hi Victoria,
I īve used this site many times this year, scroll down and you īll find "past tenses" .
"Donīt tell me" , by A Lavigne could be useful, too! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zMbIipvQL0c

Hi Vica!
 
 I heard about this song yesterday - and it was recommended for teaching past simple!
 
 
There are many versions of it on you tube it seems.
Good Luck Heart

I used Rocky Raccoon by the beatles, lots and lots of past simple and as always with the Beatles, the lyrics are easy to follow. I found a great video using īworld of Warcraft ī characters which my students just looooved.
(I uploaded a sheet on the song in the past if you īre interested)

Hello!

You īve had lots of good suggestions already. Ours would be Yellow Submarine by the Beatles, which students always love to sing along to!

We īve created a useful table of song suggestions for teaching ESL grammar points if you īre in need of a song in the future:

Happy teaching!
