Help your learners practise present perfect for experience and past simple with this fun halloween song. First teach the song with the handout, then complete one of the 2 worksheets. Finally, your students get creative and make up their own verses. The tune is to the popular camp song, “You’ll never get to heaven”.
There is a completed lyrics handout to use as a reference and/or to give to the children to sing the song. The worksheet has two variations: a simpler version with more language support, and a version with less language support.
present perfect for experience + past simple
see a witch, meet a ghost, eat bugs, hear a scream, hear a cat, dress-up, watch a film, sing a song, cast a spell, have a party, make a lantern, play a game, say ‘BOO!’
see = hands on head saw = hands on hips seen = touching toes
meet = hands on head met = hands on hips met = hands on hips
cast = hands on head cast = hands on head cast = hands on head
When the verb form is different, you move to the next position. If the verb form is the same, you don’t change position. Gradually get faster and/or get the students to play teacher.
