Product Description
Are your students having trouble knowing what verb to use to say:
I am, you are, he is, she is, we are, they are...

That's because it's an irregular verb in English, too. My students kept on writing things like "Yo es" or "Nosotros es" because they didn't have a way to memorize that soy, eres, es, somos, and son are all the same verb.

I wrote this song to use while teaching the present tense. Students enjoy the song - you can ask for volunteers who have memorized it to sing in front of the class for extra points. You can include the song lyrics on a test with words left out. Refer to the song when students ask, "How do I say are?"

I've been using this song with students from levels 1 and 2 in high school and have seen improvements in their writing and speaking.

NOTE: You may also want to teach students about the differences between estar and ser to reiterate that there are two verbs that mean "to be".
