Grammar: Adverbs of frequency
Time: 30 minutes
- Make one copy of the Game Board for each group.
Ask the students to get into groups of 4 or 5 people.
Give one Game Board to each group.
Ask students to get two coins for their group, and a space marker for each person.
How to use the coins:
Heads + Heads = Move 1
Tails + Tails = Move 2
Heads + Tails = Move 3
Ask the students to put their space markers on Start. The first student flips the coins, moves the corresponding number of spaces on the game board, and follows the instructions.
- Prompt = student on left uses the prompt to ask a question to the student who landed on the space. The student answers the question using an adverb of frequency and a time expression.
For example: Send an email
Student on left: How often do you send an email?
Student: I usually send an email on Friday evenings.
- Arrow = answer the question, then follow the arrow to jump ahead on the game board.
