Take a G and an E and O,
And add a little R-G-E,
To a W-A-S-H, I…N…G
If you add 2,000 pounds,
That makes a ton,
So what have you got?
You’ve got a lot!

I’ve written before about tricks for teaching parts of speech so that they stick. It’s the perfect opportunity to throw your self-consciousness out the window and belt out some silly songs with your kids.
