This idea uses a song to teach linking verbs


Language Arts, Music  


6, 7, 8  

Title – Linking Verbs
By – Veronica Falzone
Primary Subject – Language Arts
Secondary Subjects – Music
Grade Level – 6-8

Using a song is a quick way to teach students linking verbs. Sometimes I have the students create their own “linking verb” song by having them fit the most common linking verbs into a familiar tune.

When short on time, I teach them this song instead. Sing it to the tune of “London Bridge is Falling Down”
