Irregular verbs - grammar rap song

Irregular verbs - either you love them or hate them, I guess. Since I'm on the more affectionate side of the verbs -- I think I knew the most common ones at the tender age of 14 -- I wanted to learn them all and I did. I worked hard for it though and posted notes all around my bedroom with different tenses... Whenever I saw a note I repeated what it said: "teach taught taught" or "go went gone" until they were stuck solid in my brain. However it is not easy to learn them all so if YOU find it hard to learn the tenses of some of the most common verbs here's a wonderful video, in the shape of a verb rap song, to help you along. :)

Growth mindset

At the beginning of the semester when we meet I will show you this video and we will have a short discussion about it. Have you ever thought about what a growth mindset is? Or have you ever even thought about that we can think differently about how we think and how we can achieve things? Have a look at the video and see what you think. :)
