Learning all about state of being verbs with First Language Lessons!
Gotta love an activity where we can incorporate our whole body to learn a concept!
Here's the cute poem from the book:
Are Was Were.
Imagine it with a steady beat, with a clap at the end of each line - put two claps at the very end. Oh, and a friend of mine suggested putting a big "Oooo!" on the end, too!
Here's GMan's rendition! He reminds me a bit of one of those toy monkeys that claps their hands with the cymbals!
He told me afterwards that he thinks he'll remember the state of being verbs "forever!". I LOVE IT!
