If your students are like mine, they have trouble learning to conjugate verbs. Of course, it’s not that difficult once you get the hang of it – but the first conjugations they encounter can be tricky! Even once they learn the endings, that doesn’t always translate to them knowing which ending to use in real communication situations. So I came up with a catchy little song to the tune of “If you’re happy and you know it.” They sing along to it – or at the very least clap to it – and most of them get the endings stuck in their heads that way.

I’m sharing the lyrics here, but you can also get a free pdf that you can print and share with your students here.

The lyrics are:
If I do something, add an E (clap, clap)
If you do something, add E-S (clap, clap)
If it’s he or it’s she, then you simply add an E,
If you learn this little song,
You’ll pass your test (clap, clap)

If we do something, O-N-S (clap, clap)
If you all do something, add E-Z (clap, clap)
If it’s they, add E-N-T,
But you add it silently
If you learn this little song
You’ll pass your test (clap, clap)
