ESL Games: Tag Question Game
Tag questions are questions "tagged on" to the end of sentences, like "did he?" or "do you?". This is a simple game to help students review these.
Directions: Print out the cards below, then cut them out and put them in a cup or a hat. (Click here for a .doc version of these cards.) After teaching the students about tag questions, let each student pick a card.
Then the students can take turns saying the beginning of a sentence, with the goal of getting the teacher to say the "tag question" on his/her card.
For example, if the student chooses the card with the words "did they?", he/she could say something like: John and Mary didn't come to school yesterday. . .
The teacher then adds the tag question ". . . did they?"
This a fun review for the beginning of classes, and it gives the students a lot of practice using tag questions.
