The French er verb conjugation song

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 – and before you know it, they’ve learned the concept of French er verb conjugation. I’m sharing the lyrics here, but you can also get a free pdf that you can print and share with your students here.
