Basic Verbs & Days of the Week Worksheet (Beginner ESL)

What do you do on Monday? Days of the Week Worksheet (ESL/EFL)

ESL Level: Beginner / Elementary

This is a free ESL worksheet I made for my grade 3 students for practicing basic verbs and the days of the week. Feel free to download and edit it.

Worksheet Target Language:

StudentA: "What do you do on Monday?"

StudentB: "I play the piano on Monday."

Pre-teaching:

  • Your students should already know some basic verbs. They should be able to say basic expressions like "play the piano, ride a bicycle, eat pizza." If they don't, then use this great sheet to teach them the basic verbs.
  • They should also know the days of the week in English.

ESL Worksheet Instructions:

There are two worksheets per page. Give one worksheet (half the page) to each student.

Ask the students as a group, "What do you do on Monday?" Get them to answer in the format "I [play soccer] (on Monday)". After most of them have given you their answers, have them write their answers (e.g. "soccer") in the box beside Monday, under the column "me." If they can't write in English yet, they can write it in their native language (if they are quite young, then writing is not so important; the purpose of this worksheet is communication). Give the students 1-2 minutes to fill out the rest of the column about themselves.

Next, tell the students that they are going to interview each other. Model the question "What do you do on Monday?" Have them repeat it several times to a rhythm. Once they get it, put them in pairs. (If you want, you can have them write their partners name in the blank space atop the second column.) Once they are ready, have them begin asking questions to each other and writing down their partner's answers.

The third column is for a third partner. (If your students are tired, you can end after one interview and use the third column next class.)

That's all. It's basic but it's a good exercise that practices making full sentences using both verbs and days.
