Set-Up and Play: This is a great activity to get students writing and practicing verb forms. Begin the activity by reviewing the verb forms that students will use in the activity. Present the subject pronoun/picture slide so that students are familiar with the pictures. Begin each activity with a single click on slide that will reveal three number combinations. The first number is the subject and the second number is the verb. Students then have 30 seconds (the triangle disappears to show time passing) to write the three subjects with the correct form of the verb. When the 30 seconds have passed FIN appears on the screen and the numbers disappear. An additional click shows the three subjects with the correct verb forms so that students can check their verb forms.
