30 EFL sentence completion games (TEFLtastic classics part two revisited)

Updated 15 August 2020

Just after previously writing about sentence completion guessing games, I realised that the sentence stems were perfect for a bluffing game in which students completed the sentences with a mix of true and made up info – especially useful if students might not be able to think of too many true ways of completing the sentences.

Then just a couple of weeks ago it occurred to me that exactly the same gapped sentences could be used for the less exciting but more classroom dynamicsy activity of finding things in common. Two worksheets using all three ideas:

Present and past ability sentence completion games (guessing, things in common, and bluffing)

Past and present modals of obligation and permission sentence completion games (bluffing, guessing and things in common)

It’s not usually in the instructions, but nearly all of the photocopiables below could also be used all these ways, perhaps with a little bit of adaptation:
