Feelings and Present Continuous memory games

Stage 1: Disappearing text games

Choose one grid below and say the whole thing. Cover one word with a small piece of blank paper. Can your partner say the whole thing, including the covered word? If they can, they can cover one more word and test you in the same way. Continue taking turns saying the whole thing and covering the text one word at a time until the whole grid is covered or you can’t remember a word. Then change grids and do the same.

I’m feeling sad because I’m watching
a

 

sad movie.      

 

She’s

 

feeling hot because she’s wearing
four

 

jumpers and three pairs of
socks.

 

         

 

He’s

 

wearing two sweaters, a coat,
a

 

hat and gloves because he’s
feeling cold.

 

       

 

My

 

mother is staying in bed
all

 

day because she’s feeling ill.

 

We’re

 

feeling angry because we’re waiting
and

 

waiting and waiting.    

 

They’re thinking about juice

 

and cola
because they’re feeling thirsty.

 

   

 

I’m feeling thirsty because I’m running

 

on a hot day in August.

 

Do the same, but doing two grids at the same time.

Write similar sentences in the blank boxes below then pass them to another group to play the same game with.

Stage 2: Drawing games

Draw something from above and see if your partner can say the sentence(s). If they can’t guess just from the drawing, draw more and/ or give them other hints such as one or two key words.

Draw more Present Continuous and “because” sentences and see if your partner can say a matching sentence.

Stage 3: Mixing up games 

Take a cut-up version of one of the pairs of sentences above and mix it up. How quickly can your partner put the two sentences back into order?

Play the same game, but this time with one of the cards face down. Your partner must put them in order and say the whole thing without turning that card over. Then turn the card over to check.

Play the same game with more and more cards face down.
