Lesson Plan Text

Past Simple Make Me Say Yes- Personalised Speaking Game

Instructions
Take turns trying to make your partner say “Yes… was/ were/ did” by asking past Yes/ No 
questions. You get one point for each “
Yes” answer and half a point for “I don’t know”, but 
no point for “
No” answers. If you get “Yes” answers by using words from below, cross them
off so you both have to use different words afterwards. 

After about five minutes, play the same game but just with “Was/ Were…?” questions.
