Past, Present, and Future Tense Song For Kids



Past, Present, and Future Tense Song For Kids

Objective:
Teach kids how to change verbs depending on the tense. Teach past, present, and future tense.


How to use:
Have the kids sing it until it gets stuck in their heads. Once they are familiar with the words, you can take the time to pause during the different slides. Explain to them what everything means. Once they know the words and the meaning, they will be able to make the connection in the future when they encounter tenses.

Lyrics:
Yesterday I was
Today I am.
- Or I am now
Tomorrow I will.

Yesterday I had
Today, I have
- Or I am having.
Tomorrow I will have.

Past tense is yesterday.
Present tense is today.
Future tense is tomorrow
Tenses are OK!

Yesterday I did
Today I do,
- Or I am doing
Tomorrow I will do.

Yesterday I said,
Today, I say
- Or I am saying
Tomorrow I will say.

Past tense is yesterday.
Present tense is today.
Future tense is tomorrow
Tenses are OK!

Yesterda ay I went
To day, I go
- Or I am going
Tomorrow I will go.



Yesterday I saw
Today, I see
- Or I am seeing
Tomorrow I will see.

Past tense is yesterday.
Present tense is today.
Future tense is tomorrow
Tenses are OK!

(Some-times add an ED
To make a word past tense)
- - - - - -

Yesterday I played
Today, I play
- Or I am playing
Tomorrow I will play

Yesterday I worked,
Today, I work,
- Or I am working
Tomorrow I will work.

Sometimes add an ED
To make a word past tense
If you want it future tense
then you add the word "will."

Past tense is yesterday.
Present tense is today.
Future tense is tomorrow
Tenses are OK!

many of us who may read this post grew up speaking English, that does not mean that we may not need to improve in one aspect or another of English grammar. Websites that cater to this aspect of writing are always useful.

Having students rewrite the rules in their own words is a great idea that I had never thought of. I will definitely give it a try!
