A game for practising verb conjugations, any verb and any tense you like.

Number the personal pronouns:

  1. I
  2. You (singular)
  3. He / She / It
  4. We
  5. You (plural)
  6. They

Then show or say an infinitive. Roll a dice and students must conjugate the verb in the selected person. You could play this as a team game, a whole class game or without a competitive element.

To get the answers you could use mini whiteboards, get students to shout out, have a scribe at the board to write the answer, take turns as a class, see how many the class can do in 1 minute, get everyone in the class to do one roll of the dice and time the class…any more ideas?

    Use at AS/A2, roll three times, once for person, once for verb, once for tense. Then get them to give a sentence using the conjugated verb.
