Tell me about your day

ESL Just, Yet and Already Board Game - Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate (A2) - 30 minutes

In this fun just, yet and already board game, students make present perfect sentences about what they have normally just done, what they haven’t done yet, and what they have already done at certain times of day. Students take it in turns to roll the dice and move their counter along the board. When a student lands on a time square, they make three sentences using the present perfect. The first sentence is about what they have normally just done at that time of day. The second sentence is about what they haven’t done yet and the third is about what they have already done, e.g. 'At 8 a.m., I have just had breakfast. I haven’t gone to school yet. I have already had a shower.' If a student makes a grammar mistake or if a sentence doesn’t make sense for that time of day, the student goes back two squares. The first student to reach the finish wins the game.
