Preterite Rap Ms Davis
I said P.R.E. and T.E.R and the rest is I.T.E. Were gonna learn our preterite verbs, while you sit there looking at me. Now Im gonna start out with the regular verbs that have patterns we understand. First up on the line is the AR group, cmon and give me a hand.
Yo goes é Tú goes aste Él and Ella go ó Watch out for the accents on the end, theyre important so you know. Nosotros goes amos Vosotros goes asteis Ellos goes A.R.O.N There you show, thats the show for the AR verbs, cmon lets say em again. (repeat one time)
Listen here, comin up are ER and IR Did you know that they work the same? Shout em out so you wont get confused in the regular preterite game. Yo goes í Tú goes iste Él gets i and an ó The accents here matter just as much Dont forget em so you know
Nosotros goes IMOS Vosotros goes ISTEIS Ellos I.E.R.O. and N. In order to beat em You gotta repeat em til you know them from beginning to end.
Go Crazy! Go Crazy! Keep saying those verbs and dont be lazy!
Now all of you have come real far… But theres spell change freaks for -CAR, -GAR and –ZAR It matters to me that you should know They take a spell change, but only in YO -CAR goes –QUÉ To keep pronunciation sound of hard C With –GAR we insert a U To keep a hard G thats what we gotta do!
The –ZAR changes to a C Keeps it sounding soft, thats how its gotta be! I know that this seems a lot to know, Dont worry too much, it only happens in YO!
Now theres 4 little verbs, where you must try, to make a spell change and insert a Y. They start out normal in me and you, But in HE and THEY heres what we gonna do… We jam in a Y between the E and the O Its sound protection now there ya go! YO LEÍ, TÚ LEISTE… but ÉL LEYÓ, ¿me entendiste?
Yo leí, Tú leíste… but ÉL LEYÓ, ¿me entendiste? Nosotros leímos, vosotros leísteis Ellos LEYERON, ¿comprendisteis? CREER, CAER, OÍR too All take the same changes, its what we gotta do!
Now its time for irregular verbs, which seem a lot harder to do… But if you sing my song as we go along you can learn all the weirdos too!
Making preterite verbs in irregular forms, Can really be a snap… If you sing the song that I wrote for you, Its called the Preterite Rap! First up to learn are SER and IR, Which mean to be and to go As a bonus for you, theyre the same to do, Which I think you already know!
Yo fui, tú fuiste, él and ella fue If you say em out loud as you walk to class Youll get em down ok! Nosotros fuimos, vosotros fuisteis, ellos fueron they been The last ones hard, so spell it out, F.U.E.R.O. and N! Since its 2 for 1 with these 2 verbs, in the conjugation game… you gotta read close to choose the right one, cuz they both look just the same!
TENER and ESTAR, to have and to be Are the next 2 verbs in line. We use ESTAR for temporary states, Like Im sad or feeling fine It wont take long to learn them both, If youre running short on time, One fits inside the other one, Shout em out and hear them rhyme!
Tuve, estuve Tuviste, estuviste Tuvo, estuvo Youre doing it now, away we go Tuvimos, estuvimos Tuvisteis, estuvisteis Tuvieron, estuvieron Chunk it up, youve got it there on!
The next 2 verbs, coming right up To stare you in the face… PODER - to succeed or to try and fail PONER - to put or to place Now the thing to know when making these verbs, that all of you must do… Is pop out the O from the middle of the verb and replace it with a U!
Yo PUSE, Yo PUSE Say what you yelling at me? Now dont freak out, thats PONER in the YO, not street profanity! The rest of the verb isnt quite as much fun, But you still have to finish it out… Pusiste and puso, pusimos, pusisteis cmon and give it a shout! Said a P.U.S. and I.E.R. and the end is O and an N…that takes care of to put or to place, PODERs close so listen again
PODER works the same in the preterite game, Listen up, attention on me! Well make this verb the same as PONER, cept change the S to a D. Said P.U.D.E., pude means I could Pudiste, pudo, pudimos, pudisteis, pudieron That sounds good! Now PODER takes a change in the negative stage, it has a new meaning, I think thats strange!
NO PUDO means to try and fail Like when you get caught and have to bail!
Now the next two verbs that we must learn, mean to bring and to say TRAER and DECIR have a lot going on, In the past they change to a J YO TRAJE YO DIJE TU TRAJISTE, TU DIJISTE EL TRAJO, ELLA DIJO Makin verbs with a J now here we go!
TRAJIMOS, DIJIMOS TRAJISTEIS and DIJISTEIS TRAJERON, DIJERON Youve got to try and care on! Now theres still a few more, youve not seen before, Like HACER and SABER, theres verbs galore! Hacer is real tricky and can even get sticky, Especially in EL its really quite ICKY!
Yo goes HICE Tú HICISTE But Él goes HIZO What did she say? H-I-Z-O, he did or made and there ya go! Hicimos, hicisteis, hicieron in the least stays Now theres one more verb before I go, Thats SABER which means to know
Its kinda strange, it works like PUDE Gonna change it to a U, the YO forms SUPE! Now whats it mean, I hear you shout… Saber in the past means to find out. S-U-P-E I found out what you said about me Supiste means that you found out… Theres a test today, whats it about? S.U.P.O. he found out that you had to go…
I know that yall can make the rest, Following the patterns, gonna put you to the test…. Ill leave the rest of the verbs to you, As we learn em you know what you must do! My song is over and Im out of time, but when we get a new verb YOU gonna make the rhyme.
Singin on and on and on on and on The verbs dont stop til the break of dawn But if you sing my song as you go along, They wont be so hard that you cant keep on Just do it, just do it, just do it do it do it!
