How is it formed?

The present continuous is made from the present tense of the verb be and the –ing form of a verb:
I am cooking
You are playing
He is walking
She is living
It is eating
We are watching
They are working
We use the present continuous to talk about:
  • activities at the moment of speaking:
        I‘m just going to work. I’ll be home later.

How to Play the Board Game

Students take turns rolling the dice and moving their piece along the board. When a student lands on a square they need to say what is happening in the picture using the present continuous.  For example if they land on the first space, the person on the bike, the student would have to say “The man/woman is riding a bicycle” .

This game can be played in teams or individually. The game typically last 10 – 15 minutes but it can be shortened by rolling the die twice.
