Grammar Games to Teach Will-Future Tense
Teaching grammar can often feel like a dry subject for students. However, the will-future tense opens up opportunities to make learning interactive and engaging. With a little creativity, you can turn will-future lessons into something students look forward to. Here are some ideas to teach will-future in a fun way that kids will love.
Use Real-Life Situations
Instead of teaching will-future through isolated sentences, provide real-life situations that students can relate to. For example:
- Next weekend, we will go camping in the forest.
- Tomorrow morning, I will eat pancakes for breakfast.
- In two years, you will graduate from elementary school.
Having context helps them grasp when to use will-future for plans, predictions, etc. Let them come up with their own examples too.
