ESL Verbs Game - Reading, Matching, Writing and Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate - 35 minutes
In this enjoyable verbs game, students compete to place verbs in their correct category. The students are divided into competing pairs (A and B). Each pair of students is given a verbs list and each set of competing pairs is given a copy of the categories worksheet. There are eight categories in total with six verbs from the verbs list belonging to each category. The pairs take it in turns to choose a verb from their list and write it in the A or B column under the category that they think the verb belongs to. The pair then crosses the verb off the list. After a pair has written a verb under a category, they are not allowed to move it. When the pairs have categorized all the verbs on their list, the correct answers are elicited from the class. Pairs score one point for each correctly placed verb. The pair with the highest score wins the game.
