This presentation is based on Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS, which enables students to develop aesthetic and language literacy and critical thinking skills, while giving teachers a powerful new technique they can utilize throughout their career. It uses pictures from real life to practice simple present and present continuous forms. There is a need to take up grammar in an everyday context with examples from daily usage to ensure that students go beyond memorizing the rules. This lesson plan provides students with the context needed for the use and understanding of the simple present,the present continuous tense, prepositions, adjectives and nouns etc . This teaching strategy focuses on finding the missing information in given sentences. It provides sentences that are missing the subject, verb or the entire predicate. Then they show options of phrases to fill in the missing spot. The students' job is to identify the type of information missing and the correct filler to make the sentence complete. Most sentences are in the order of Subject Verb Object, or SVO. Use this concept when identifying the lost information. Advanced students can even write their own sentences in an incorrect order, challenging other students to correct the errors.

The above downloadable worksheet is meant for at Intermediate (B1) level.
