Activity/strategy name and materials required How to do the activity Key principles for doing the activity and comments
What have you done today?

Optional - way of recording students responses - e.g. paper/pen, whiteboard/marker

  1. Go round each student in turn asking what they have done today - e.g. "what did you do this morning": ideally one or two things each.
  2. Write and/or sketch something (very roughly!!) under each student's name on the sheet of paper (you can use this as a prompt later).
  3. After all students have said something, pretend to have "forotten" what they'd said - ask individual students to remind you, for example "Karen, what did Abdul do?" - use the prompt sheet if necessary.


  • After a student has said what they did, get them to ask their neighbour what they did.
  • Get the students to ask each other in pairs and then tell the whole group what their partner did.
  • Ask students to say what they did at the weekend or what they did in the holidays.
