Hi everyone.
I need to plan a lesson for my 7/8 year olds on the rules of verb to be. I have got some simple worksheets, but I would like to teach them a song or a rhyme that could help them to remember the rules and play some games. Does anyone have any suggestions? Please HELP!

Hello Sylwia !
How about using jazz chants ? Here are some examples :

or maybe create your own with BE ? Here is a link to C Graham ( making up chants ):

Hope it can be useful,

Hi Sylwia, I taught my 7-8 year olds the Verb to be by using a simple song that goes like this: I am happy, you are happy, he is happy, she is happy, it is happy, we are happy, you are happy, they are happy, everybodys happy. They loved it and learnt it very very quickly, after they learnt the song I got them to write the Verb to be in their notebooks then memorise it. Good luck. The singing works wonders!!

Hi Sylwia, I've just uploaded a game for kids in which they practise the verb be having fun. Have a look. You may find it useful. The name of the game is "New Identities". Take care. Julia
