Was or Were?

WasWereColourHere’s a little board game to help your students review the past simple of the verb To Be. It’s very controlled practice and it can be used as a consolidation stage before moving on to freer practice. First students can play the board game in groups and then they can write their own sentences using “was” and “were”. I designed this mainly with the affirmative form in mind, but you can definitely extend it and have the students come up with the negative or interrogative forms of the sentences on the board.

Present Continuous Board Game

Present ContinuousHere are some Present Continuous Conversation Questions that you can use with your students. They’re in the form of a board game but I guess it can be adapted. I tried to include as many situations as possible that would prompt them to use the Present Continuous in their answers. If you choose to use this with groups of students, make sure they ask each other plenty of follow-up questions. Use the dice if you have groups of four playing or you can just put the question numbers 1 to 22 into a hat and have them draw the numbers one by one.

Let me know how it goes and if there’s anything I should improve.

Happy learning!: )

‘Should’ – Giving advice

Should - Giving adviceThis is a speaking activity that you can use as freer practice in your one-to-one sessions or as pair work in the classroom if you want to revise or consolidate the use of ‘should’ for giving advice.

Each circle includes a number. Use dice to establish who’s going to read the situation or just choose a number between 1 and 15 and then read the corresponding situation. The other student in the pair will then offer some advice based on the situation. Students can also ask additional questions so they would find out more about the problem. This could develop really nicely into a longer conversation.
