How to use English grammar tenses activities

  1. Print the cards with actions, cut and laminate them.
  2. Do the same with the spinners.
  3. Students can work in pairs, teams or alone.
  4. They should spin the spinner and make a sentence with an action and a pronoun on the action card (some cards have “My…” instead of the pronoun). The students should also remember to include all the necessary:
  • articles (a, an, the);
  • possessive pronouns (my, your, his, her, their, our, its);
  • time expressions depending on the tense.

Not all cards have the necessary articles. I deliberately omitted them so that the students could insert the right article and practice.

Black and white option is available.
