Daily Routine Board Game to Practice Present Simple (ESL)

Board Game for Practice of Daily Routines (Present Simple)

ESL Level: Beginner

Activity Strengths: Practice of Present Simple, fun

Target Language: “I wake up (at 7 o’clock).


This is a simple board game I created in MS Word to practice the present simple tense. With my students, I first practice the phrase “I watch TV at 3 o’clock.” Then I put my class into groups of three and give each group one board game sheet. Since there are only 22 squares on the board game, I gave them a 1 cent coin instead of a die to use. The students flip the coin to determine how many spaces to move (the side with “1” on it = 1 space, the other side = 2 spaces).

If you don’t want to practice times, then simply open the .doc file and edit the board game and remove the times.
