Worksheets for MES Flashcards
Hobbies and Free Time Activities Flashcards:
vocabulary: make a scrapbook, collect things, ride bikes, play with trains, play with dolls, play cards, email friends, watch TV, paint pictures, do puzzles, play games with Grandpa, fly a kite, read a book, play video games, race remote-control cards, build models, put on a puppet show, jump rope
Mark's Note: the first set are things younger students might be interested in their free time. The second set is for upper elementary school to teens. So, I would recommend using one or the other depending on the age of your students, not necessarily in order (set 1 and then set 2.)
Both sets are good for teaching:
'What do you do in your free time?'
'What do you like to do?'
'What are your interests or hobbies?'
Both sets are also great for introducing 'do' for regular actions or the present simple forms. It's a very natural structure for these activities and I don't need to explain the grammar when I use these cards.
If you use the first set with older students or adults, it's a great set to teach 'used to.'
- 'I used to play with trains when I was younger.'
- 'I used to paint a few years ago.'
- 'I used to play video games but now I'm too busy.'
Not necessarily just the first set but both of the sets are good for 'used to' since we tend to do these activities for a while but then stop.
** Sports are not included because I have three different sets for sports already. As best I can, I try not to repeat vocabulary within different sets. For sports, see the sports sets. **
