PRONOUNS-CHANT: Singing the pronouns altogether!! Learning how to take turns…– beginner / intermediate / advanced / children / teens / adults
I have been setting expressions to music and rhythmic chants for decades with excellent results.
Distinguishing when to use the different sets of PRONOUNS and POSSESSIVE ADJECTIVES are always a problem in my classes - students just don’t seem able to distinguish them - so I have invented this chant in the hope of fixing these expressions forever!!
Chants are a very repetitive way of embedding expressions in the brain so that they become second-nature and just 'sound right' without having to resort to learning grammar rules and translating from one's own language with the inevitable often horrific results.
Taking turns when playing games – many students don’t know when it’s their turn and the others like to ‘wake them up’ but telling them so: I insist they use English, thereby practicing their pronouns at the same time! Here is another chant for them to remember the expression.
You can download the worksheets to the chants below.
Hope it's useful!
