I Just Barely Made It!

Hi everyone,
During the previous year I noticed that a group of my intermediate speakers of English were struggling with the phrases ‘just barely’.  They were substituting ‘just hardly’ for it.  I put together a one day  ELD lesson and then created this chant to practice continued practice, until they became fluent with the phrase.  I want to share the call back with any of you who might be able to use it.  So here is the little call back chant I wrote to practice the phrase “just barely”.

I Just Barely Made It!

I just got out of bed,
and barely touched my breakfast.
I just grabbed my books
And headed out the door!

I just barely made it.
I just barely made it.
I just barely made it, to school on time!
Happy Teaching,
