Need some great activities to practice the present continuous verb tense with your students? This set of focused activities uses Action Verbs to practice the present progressive tense. Included you'll find: matching, new vocabulary worksheets and cootie catchers / fortune tellers. Your students will practice 64 different action verbs with the 3 activities included in this set.

What's included in this download:

8 different cootie catchers/fortune tellers (64 different verbs to practice)

Each cootie catcher depicts an action verb. This is such a wonderful activity to practice correct sentence formation. Your students must use a complete sentence to describe the scene. Example: The girl is inviting the boy to a party.

4 pages of action verb worksheets: Your students are asked to write both the infinitive and present continuous of the verb depicted in the picture. This is fantastic to pre-teach the verbs if your students are unfamiliar with them. Self- correcting with answer sheets included.

Sentence matching activity: After your students have learned the verbs, use this sentence matching activity to have them match complete present continuous sentences to the appropriate picture.
