This is a flashcard kit I made for my students to help them practise word order in Present Simple. The flashcards come in two versions, one is black and white and the other one is in colour. The different colours might help to distinguish different parts of speech and they make sorting the cards a lot easier. You might want to print out the set and laminate it to make it more durable.
The flashcards might be used to practise the basics:
• making positive sentences,
• making negative sentences,
• making yes/no type questions,
• making wh- questions etc.
For example:
Positive: A hard-working student learns every day.
Negative: A lazy student does not learn every day.
Yes/no question: Does a hard-working student learn every day?
Wh- question: Why does a hard-working student learn every day?
Moreover, you can focus on adverbs of frequency:
• word order in positive/negative sentences and questions,
• word order with the verb to BE or main verbs etc.
For example:
Positive: I am always happy. VS. I usually play computer games.
Negative: I am not always happy. VS. I do not usually play computer games.
Yes/no question: Are you always happy? VS. Do you usually play computer games?
The flashcards are divided into 17 (from 0 to 16) sections as follows:
0. Task Cards: Present Simple (the tense); Positive (to make a positive sentence); Negative (to make a negative sentence); Yes/No Question (to make a yes/no type question); Wh- Question (to make a question with a question word); Adverb of Frequency (to denote the position of adverbs of frequency in the sentence); Personal Pronoun (to denote the position of personal pronouns in the sentence); Verb to BE (to denote the position of the verb to be in the sentence, or to show the type of the verb); Adverb NOT (to make negatives with the verb to be, auxiliary verbs, and modal verbs); Auxiliary Verb (to denote the position of auxiliary verbs in the sentence, or to show the type of the verb); Verb (to denote the position of main verbs in the sentence, or to show the type of the verb); Preposition (to denote the position of prepositions in the sentence); Parts of the Day (to denote the position of parts of the day in the sentence, or to be used as a group label); Seasons (to denote the position of seasons in the sentence, or to be used as a group label); Question Word (to denote the position of question words in the sentence, or to be used as a group label); Modal Verb (to denote the position of modal verbs in the sentence, or to show the type of the verb); Days (to denote the position of days in the sentence, or to be used as a group label); Nouns (to denote the position of nouns in the sentence, or to be used as a group label); Articles (to denote the position of articles in the sentence, or to be used as a group label); and Adjectives (to denote the position of adjectives in the sentence, or to be used as a group label).
