Donna just sent in this great to teach the past tense of to be, to have in the negative etc. using the “The One Card Game” cards.
“In Korea, it WAS cloudy.” or
“In New Zealand it WAS sunny.”
Next time we did the negative,
“In England, it WASN’T snowy.”
We even used the future:
“In Japan it WILL BE cloudy tomorrow.”
I also used the monkey family food cards and changed the text using DO. (doesn’t-don’t)
e.g. Instead of “Brother LIKES carrots.”
say “Brother DOESN’T LIKE carrots.”
I used TO HAVE in the negative (doesn’t have -don’t have) with the school cards.
This is tricky.
Instead of “I HAVE a ruler.” say “I DON’T HAVE a ruler.”
“She DOESN’T have a pen.”
This would be the American way of saying it.
But here, in Vienna, they teach “have got” so it would be
“I HAVEN’T GOT a ruler.”
“She HASN’T GOT a pencil.”
I played this with about 8-10 kids (2 groups) and I listen in to make sure no one cheats (reads the card text).
Has anyone tried any other games like this?
