Rap it out…

Students in Parker Couch’s English class at Grizzlies Prep in Memphis use this rap to commit helping verbs to memory.

Here are the lyrics in case you too need a refresher on helping verbs:

May I? (Yeah!)
Will I? (Yeah!)
Shall I? (Yeah!)
Can I? (Yeah!)
All right, let’s go…
I got my would,
I got my should,
I got my could,
I got my may, might, must.

Props to Mr. Couch, a founding ELA teacher at Grizzlies Prep, for developing the words and to sixth-grader Taurean Moy for developing the beat.
