🏃 I Just Barely Made It!

 Hi everyone,

This is Lori from Fun To Teach!


During the previous year I noticed that a group of my ESL intermediate speakers of English were struggling with the phrases ‘just barely’.  

They were substituting ‘just hardly’ for just barely.  I put together a one day  ESL lesson and then created this chant for 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 ESL call back chant I wrote to practice the phrase “just barely”.


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,


Hey everyone it is coming!
