Simple Exercise to practice Present Simple in positive and negative form. First page with pictures of Katie Holmes I give out to students saying that they are paparazzi and took those photos last week. I ask them to write a sentence about each picture.
Later I tel them that their pictures were used by a newspaper to write an article about Katie Holmes. I read them twice the article (I do not give out the text - it is a listening exercise). I ask them to find mistakes in the article. I ask to use full sentences to use both negative and positive form of Past Simple.
As a last part I ask them to write 6 sentences about their last week (what they did and did not do)
