    helping verb and preposition SONGS!!

    I'm sure many know these but songs are very helpful to us! You can look them up on YouTube or google them for the lyrics (sorry I don't know how to post links here!)

    The Helping Verb Song is to the tune of "Jingle Bells"
    "Helping verbs, helping verbs! There are 23...
    Am, is, are! Was and were! Being, been and be!
    Have, has, had! Do, does, did! Shall, should, will and would!
    There are 5 more helping verbs: may, might, must, can, and could!"

    Preposition song (there are many of these but this was best for us)
    Sung to tune of "Yankee Doodle"
    Aboard, about, above, across
    Against, along, around, Amid, among, after, at
    Except, for , during, down

    Behind, below, beneath, beside
    Between, before, beyond
    By, in, from, off. on, over, of
    Until, unto, upon

    Under, underneath, since, up
    Like, near, past, throughout, through
    With, within, without, instead
    Toward, inside, into, to

    * note on prepositions: We used a book last year that taught the prepositions first. They suggested finding all prepositional phrases first and drawing a light line through them. This has helped my 4th grader with finding direct objects, etc. so she doesn't confuse the nouns in the prep phrase.

    Hope this helps!!
