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.
