BRIEF OUTLINE: Using a Celine Dion love song, students play bingo listening for past tense verbs in the song.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • BecauseYouLovedMe bingo sheets: 3x3 or 4x4
  • Celine Dion’s 'Because You Loved Me' song (not included)

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After splitting students work in pairs (or you can have them work individually), hand out the bingo sheets.
  2. Write the list of present tense verbs on the board. Then, as a class, change them into the past tense. Practice saying them as a class. The present tense verbs in this song are: stand, love (2x), make, touch, see (2x), give (2x), is, have, are (3x), bless and lift.
  3. Play the song once to allow the students to become familiar with it.
  4. Allow students to choose from the list of past tense verbs and write a verb in each box.
  5. Play the song again, stopping the song after each past tense verb.
  6. When a student crosses out a vertical, horizontal or diagonal line, they yell out, “bingo!”

 

VARIATIONS:

  • For lower-level students, use the 3x3 bingo card.

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • Be aware of the students' English levels. If the students are high-level, allow them to work individually. If they are low-level students, they might need to work in groups.
