The ~ing Worksheet

Here is the worksheet I’m using to supplement Hi Friends 1 Lesson 2.  The idea of using gestures to communicate is one of the underlying themes in this lesson, and what better way to practice communicating with gestures than a lively game of charades?

After presenting the basic present continuous and giving plenty of examples, I have students complete this worksheet in groups.  This makes the worksheet into a social activity, and allows more advanced students to help others without being too obvious about it.

Once the groups are complete, we practice the new vocabulary, then finish up with a game of Charades using actions from the worksheet.  I sometimes add the question “What are you doing?” to make the game more of a call and response activity.
