You can teach your students all regular and irregular preterite verb conjugations through this rap song, and you will look hilarious. The lyrics accompany the old RAPPERS DELIGHT song by the Sugarhill Gang. You can download a karaoke version of this old school favourite at Amazon.com and your kids can sing along as you teach them the verbs. This was especially successful in the urban school I taught in as the students recognized the song that their parents listened played at home. One of my students favourites!
