Works for Me Wednesday - Helping Verbs

I learned this little diddy when I was in the sixth grade and it helped me all the way to high school when we were stilll learning the same thing. My teacher taught it to us to help us learn our "helping verbs." This has helped both my second and third grader this year as they have had to learn about helping verbs as well. In my best singing voice, to the tune of Jingle Bells, here we go! As my son says, "and a 1 and a 2 and 1, 2, 3, 4 hit it!"

And for an added bonus, a little directional help for those of you who are trying to teach your kids North, East, South and West in order. Make sure they Never Eat Soggy Waffles. They are bad for you and taste yucky! :)
