Present Continuous Parfait

Home Main Submit Contents Recipes

Okay, here I am agin with yet another chant. It sounds ridiculously simple, but you would not believe how well it worked with a class that just could NOT remember to use the BE verb or the -ING. Hope it helps.

** If you have BE, you have -ING.

** If you have -ING, you must have BE.

(Oh, and by the way. There is a bit of cadence with this, but as I've noticed here in Asia, the kids just cannot get the rhythm. So, whichever way helps them, I let them say it that way).
