Grammaticards: Time Connectors

Rapid-fire English grammar activities from the ESL Expertz!


ESL Expertz presents Grammaticards: reusable tools created to facilitate regular review of specific grammar points quickly and efficiently.

Gramaticards are fun “finish the phrase” cards that you can use as a warm-up or at the end of any lesson (you know, when your lesson plan wrapped up quicker than you expected!) as a quick and dynamic review. Collect and mix other Grammaticards covering other grammar points to review multiple grammatical concepts in the same review.

Each set contains sentence fragments requiring the use of a particular grammatical structure. For this set, we are focusing on time connectors such as before, after, until, as soon as, once, when, etc. Students are presented sentence fragments which they must complete correctly. The resource comes with a review sheet, 60 game cards, and 4 different ways to use this resource. 

Print, laminate, cut, and you’ve got a lifelong resource to use with all of your students.

The downloadable ZIP includes:

  • A PDF with instructions for all the variations and printable cards (60 sentence fragments with time connectors to complete);
  • A VIRTUAL VERSION folder which groups together all the game cards in JPG or PNG format to increase the usability of this resource: playing the game during your online lessons via screen-share or on a virtual whiteboard, using a projector or interactive whiteboard in your classroom, using your computer screen to display the game cards to your class, or making a limited selection of cards to print in order to limit printing and cutting.

    Great cards – it’s really helpful for many reasons: they can be used whenever you want and need (lesson about time connectors or last 10 minutes of any other lesson). It encourages students to be creative, which is quite difficult for some students – so, in the long term it also helps them for written assignment. And they represent “real” and funny situations at the same time.
    Please just correct the mistake in page 3 “The detective”. 🙂
