Students listen to the song Auld Lang Syne by Dan Fogelberg which can be accessed via YouTube.com.
It is NOT RELIGIOUS. If you have any doubts about that please listen to the song first before purchasing this item.
As students listen to this beautiful song with easy to follow story line, they will fill in past tense verbs and circle other past tense verbs they see. This approach follows the PACE approach to teaching grammar. But in a remixed kind of way. After playing the song twice we go over the answers and then break down or "study" the meaning of the lyrics.
Students then do a think-pair-share with their partners for the discussion questions that are included. After we share all of our answers this sometimes leads to a nice discussion about the lyrics or about music and other songs. Students can often be wonderful resources for good songs with easy or interesting lyrics so pay attention for this part! This is an excellent end of the week fun activity.
