The Verb Song!

Submitted by: Janie Allan
From: Barnesville, GA
Date Submitted: March 1, 2003

I teach in a multigrade classroom and I have used this song with 1st-10th graders who struggle with learning verbs that are not action verbs. I wrote it to go to the tune of "It's a Small World After All" from Disney World.
The tune begins at,"It's a world of...."

Am are is was were has been had and have
Am are is was were has been had and have
Am Are is was were- has been had and have

And DO- DID- DONE! (said with emphasis)

(The tune varies somewhat in the next part. The object being to say it as fast as possible)

Could be should be would be will be
May be might be must be

Could be should be would be will be
May be might be must be

Could be should be would be will be
May be might be must be

And DO- DID- Done!

It's a verb word after all.
It's a verb word after all.
It's a verb word after all.
It's a verb, verb, word!

My students beg to sing it. And I have never had any who had a problem with remembering their linking or helping verbs. On one occasion I even taught it to some 10th graders who were having a problem. The next day one came to me laughing. "Mrs. Allan, I woke up in the middle of the night singing that dumb song!"

It's a verb word after all.

It's a verb,verb,word!
