Students enjoy practicing verb forms with this powerpoint activity. It is called “Against the clock.” On each screen there are subjects and infinitives. Students are given 6 subject/verb pairs and 40-50 seconds to write the correct verb form, either on paper or on a mini white board. When the time is up the sentences disappear and the students stop writing. The animation can be set to do this so that all the teacher has to do is click once to start. After it is done the teacher can click once more and the correct sentences come on the screen. It is quite impressive how quickly students can write the correct verb forms when they are trying to “beat the clock.”
