Day 10 of my Grammarly Christmas: an activity for teaching there is/are.

Welcome once again to my ‘12 Grammarly Days of Christmas.’

Day 10 of my Grammarly Christmas: an activity for teaching there is/are

For twelve days in the month of December I’m posting either an infographic highlighting the rules that govern the ways we use a certain grammatical point, ideas to help those of us who get confused by said grammar point, and sometimes maybe even a few activities thrown in for good measure. Today is now day ten of my Christmas marathon which means I’m moving slowly but surely towards the end of my blogging marathon! Today’s post focuses on a great tool for teaching there is/there are… Being an expat English language teacher, it shouldn’t be too surprising that I’m something of a traveler and a geography nut. I love the natural world and exploring all it has to offer, especially when I get the chance to use this theme in the classroom.

Those of you who dropped by yesterday will already know that I’m embarking on ‘The 12 Grammarly Days of Christmas’.

Day 5 of my Grammarly Christmas: prepositions of time

Every day for twelve days, I’ll be posting an infographic highlighting the rules that govern the ways we use a certain grammatical point, along with ideas to help those of us who get confused by said grammar point, and maybe even a few activities thrown in for good measure. Today is now the fifth day of my Christmas posting extravaganza; I’m nearly half way there and I’m feeling steadily more confident I can do it! Let’s continue with an old classic, by looking at prepositions of time… The prepositions at, in and on are often used in English to talk about places (physical positions) and times.

These prepositions can be incredibly tricky for learners, because sometimes the choice of one over another in a particular phrase or sentence seems arbitrary. If we examine these different aspects of usage for the three prepositions, a general pattern emerges. Day 4 of my Grammarly Christmas: using video clips to teach grammar. If you’ve been reading the blog recently, you’ll know that I’m embarking on ‘The 12 Grammarly Days of Christmas’.

Day 4 of my Grammarly Christmas: using video clips to teach grammar

Every day for twelve days, I’ll be writing a post highlighting the rules that govern the ways we use a certain grammatical point, along with ideas to help those of us who get confused by said grammar point, and maybe even a few activities thrown in for good measure. Today is now the fourth day in my Christmas posting extravaganza and with each passing day I’m feeling steadily more confident I can do it! In the first three of my posts, I offered grammar advice on a particular verb tense.

Today, I’m changing direction a little by looking at utilizing video clips to teach grammar in general. To be honest, I have an ulterior motive for this! Please click on the image and vote for ‘How to get 10 grammar teaching activities from one video clip.’ Today’s offering is a reposting of a very popular post from March of this year. Now, on to business. That really is something, isn’t it? Day 3 of my Grammarly Christmas: past perfect and past perfect continuous.

Those of you who dropped by yesterday will already know that I’m in a sharing mood because it’s Christmas!

Day 3 of my Grammarly Christmas: past perfect and past perfect continuous

As crazy as I might be for trying it, I’m embarking on ‘The 12 Grammarly Days of Christmas’. Every day for twelve days, I’ll be posting an infographic highlighting the rules that govern the ways we use a certain grammatical point, along with ideas to help those of us who get confused by said grammar point, and maybe even a few activities thrown in for good measure. Today is now the third day of my Christmas posting extravaganza and I’m feeling steadily more confident I can do it! Let’s continue with an old classic, by looking at the past perfect simple and continuous tenses… The concept of the past perfect is often easier to grasp for learners of English than the present perfect (see yesterday’s post for some ideas about the present perfect), partly because the event being discussed is usually clearly in the past.

What are the past perfect simple and continuous tenses? A. 1. 2. 3. Day 2 of my Grammarly Christmas: for and since with present perfect. Day 1 of my Grammarly Christmas: present perfect continuous.
