Present Continuous Cards

Present Continuous Cards

This time I’ve created 150 Present Continuous Cards. The cards include 5 different types of cards aiming at revising present continuous. I hope you like this new teaching resource just as much as you did my 150 Present Simple Cards. There are 30 cards of each type and all of them contain colourful pictures and backgrounds. The first type of the cards can be used to practise short answers and includes questions with ‘is’ and ‘are’. There are no questions of this type with ‘am’ because these wouldn’t really work here. Questions such as ‘Am I feeling fine?’ seem a bit odd. The next group of cards contains wh- questions. There are also questions with ‘how’. Next, we have cards with multiple-choice sentences. There are always four answers but only one of them is correct. Some of the answers are very similar which makes the task a bit challenging and way more rewarding. The next 30 cards show sentences with gaps that need to be completed by your students. Last but not least, we have speaking cards entitled ‘Time to talk!’. Each card contains a short description of a situation and three or four questions.

Grammar terms posters

Grammar terms posters

I use these posters in a variety of ways but often only displaying a few - not all. For older children, I often use this as a reading activity or grammar recap. I give them a small version A6 version (photocopy shrunk) to stick in their books then they have to either find examples in books or write their own. For younger children, I keep the appropriate terms A4 size and use a group or whole class activity with them drawing and writing further examples. For year 6 I used to give them to partners in a pack and they did oral tests to see if the other person could give examples of the random term selected.
