We did this song in order to update the past tense
ROAD TO MANDALAY
We also played a game called Jigsaw Reading. This running dictation consists in having some papers with the past verbs lists spread around the class. Once made the groups of pupils (2 or 3), one pupil from each group goes to the list (which is hung on the wall), read the verb form to complete, comes back to their place and dictates (by spelling first) what he/she have read. The aim is to complete a worksheet with some blanks: either past or present forms.
