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 must go back to their previous square.

In this rewarding present perfect with just activity, students play a card game where they listen to common everyday expressions and guess what has just happened. Give each group of three or four a set of cards, which they shuffle and place face down in a pile on the table. The students then play a guessing game to practice the present perfect with just. The students take it in turns to pick up a card and read the expression in bold to the group, e.g. 'I'll get it'. The other students then try to guess what has just happened by making present perfect sentences with 'You've just...' The first student to guess the correct answer wins and keeps the card, e.g. 'You've just heard a knock at the door'. The next student then picks up a card and so on. If students are unable to guess the exact answer, a close enough answer can be accepted. The game continues until all the cards have been used. The student with the most cards at the end of the game wins.
