BRIEF OUTLINE: This activity is designed for students to review "Have you already...?" and "I haven't...yet." question/answers.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • HaveYouLearned attachments: Includes a 2 worksheets (one for each student) and picture cards (every student receives 1 card).

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Go over each picture and verb with students to ensure that everyone knows the Present Perfect tense of the verbs.
  2. Read and repeat if necessary.
  3. How to play: Students will go around asking each other, "Have you ...yet?" The question they ask depends on which card they have. If the student has "help the girl" card, s/he will ask, "Have you helped the girl yet?" The partner will answer according to the card s/he has as well. If the partner holds the "help the girl" card too, then s/he will answer, "Yes, I have. I have already helped the girl." If the partner holds another card, s/he will answer, "No, I haven't. I have not helped the girl yet." Then it is the partner's turn to ask the question based on his/her card.
  4. When both students ask/answer the question, they will switch their card and go ask other students.
  5. Teacher should tell students how many students they need to ask prior to the activity.
  6. After the activity, teachers can ask for volunteers to present in front of the class.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Find Your Partner: Instead of randomly changing cards with their partners, students can try to find their match. Make sure there are only two identical cards among the students and the goal is for students to find the same card. When they do, they'll go to the teacher and demonstrate their conversation.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • For the writing activity, it is recommended that you change the questions according to the students' level of English and/or what the teacher wants to review, keeping in mind Question 7 is a bit challenging.
