I love a good story, whether I’m the one telling it or hearing it. I believe students enjoy stories as well, and with enough support they are willing to step into the role of the narrator. I’ve already suggested a number of activities based on storytelling. This post and the next one will offer a set of gapped narratives that can serve as a review of verb tenses (past, present, and future). The approach will be the same in all three: write > share > study.
Today’s tale is called An Unsolved Mystery and it reviews the past tenses. Click here to view and print out Timely Tales_handout 1.
