By having students draw a hint next to each day of the week, this weekly routine flip book can effectively become the basis for a speaking activity in which students make guesses about their classmates’ routines and then check them by reading the sentences inside. A good way to practise the present simple in the affirmative, negative and interrogative, adverbs of frequency and everyday life actions.
1. The students make their own flip book first:
2. For each day of the week, the students write two or three sentences using adverbs of frequency or time expressions. A few of them could be false. On each flap they also draw a picture that represents each of the actions.
3. In pairs or teams, the students take turns guessing other classmates’ routines by looking at the pictures and then checking their answers inside. They may also be encouraged to ask a few questions to get more specific information (“How often…?”, “Where do you usually…?”, “What time do you…?”, and so on), which will help them find the routines that are not true.
