Activities? past simple/present simple at elementary level?

Unread postby ekat84 » 30 Apr 2009, 22:53

Hi there,

I am a trainee teacher, searching for a way to stop my students from saying "I go to school three times last week". Any ideas for activities/tasks?

Cheers, Kat

Dear Kat,

I suggest you try 3 things:

1) Drills: drill the students briefly. Keep it light, short and get a good rhythm going. You can do this for a few minutes and then remember to correct (or invite students to correct) any mistakes that come up afterwards.

2) Take a list of adjectives; students pick one and describe the last time they felt happy, sad, angry, etc. Ask them to say what happened.

3) Ask them to choose a famous person from history (someone who isn't alive). Ask them to describe the main events in the life of that person.

Best wishes,

Lucy
