BRIEF OUTLINE: Students create gerund sentences using the elements given on the worksheet.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Have students get into groups of 3-4 and hand out one worksheet to each group. Give the students a time limit of 10-15 minutes to complete the worksheet. Students create and write as many sentences as they can using the elements from each box. They can continue onto the back of their worksheet and/or notebooks.
  2. At the end of the time limit, each group reads their sentences and you record how many viable sentences they made.
  3. The group with the most sentences wins.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • Adding in the element that if they have the same sentence as another group, both groups lose one point. So only original sentences that no other groups form scores points.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • I designed this activity specifically for the grammar point in New Horizon's grade 2 textbook (pg. 60), but it can be used for any gerund practice.
