What ya doin’ warmer

Introduction:

This is a great warmer I’ve actually taken part in in an acting class. It allows elementary students to practise the present continuous in a really entertaining way.

Objective:

  1. To practise the present continuous tense.

Procedure:

  1. Ask students to stand in a circle.
  2. One student stands in the middle of the circle and mimes an action e.g. cooking.
  3. A student who stands in the circle walks up to the student in the middle and asks “What are you doing?”
  4. The miming student in the middle doesn’t say what they are actually doing but says what the student who asked will have to mime next e.g. I am skiing.
  5. The first student leaves the circle and the second student continues miming until someone enters the circle and asks what they are doing.
  6. The game continues until all the students have mimed an action at least twice.
