Grammar With Attitude!! :\

We have been having some verb fun the past week. The kids really love the Youtube videos!! I have one I do for nouns and a couple I use for verbs. I use them as brain breaks before or after I teach the grammar lesson. 
They all get stuck in our heads and the students and I tend to hum them all day. Too funny! Play them and you will see. 

This video is super funny!! (At least I think so) My kids are allowed to stand by their desks and follow along. They tend to want to really get crazy but I just lay down the law. :)  Once the behavior expectations are clear they are great. They think it is hilarious when I start clapping and jumping along.

We discussed irregular verbs today and I showed this video just after I introduced them. It has pictures that grab their attention and I then show it again after the lesson so they see the irregular verbs again. They really liked it today.


I also created a sassy irregular verbs chart! I say sassy because as I was teaching today a co-worker came in and complimented the chart. One of my girls pipped up that Mrs. Lutton likes to make her charts "sassy", ha!


This is the one I made for verbs. 
My lovely daughter helped me color it.
We did nouns last week. I've shown this noun song for a couple years now and I really like it!! The kids practically memorize it. Beware!! This one will sooo get stuck in your head!! ;)





Thanks for stopping by and taking a look around!! 
I hope you found something that you can use in your room!!

  1. I love these videos but how do I get them to play if my school blocks YouTube.

  2. I just read about this on a blog this week. She said something about downloading the video to the free version of media player and then playing it during class. I'm not sure and I just don't remember what blog I saw it on. Anyone else read that one?? :)

  3. To watch my Verb Rap and other videos at school where Youtube is blocked you must download it. Enter the URL to http://keepvid.com/ and it will let you download it. Bring it to school on a Flash drive or email it to yourself to show your students.
