My Family’s Thanksgiving

(A tweaked reprint of a 2016 post.)

For beginning level students, this is a Google Slide presentation of regular verb activities we do to celebrate Thanksgiving as a family. (You might want to add a slide, “We watch football games!) Use the language prompts to generate conversation. (Who cooks at your house? Do you cook? What do you cook? Does your husband cook? What does he cook? Do your children cook, too? What do they cook? What time do you cook? Etc. Don’t forget to have your students ask you questions.  (Be sure to include negative questions and responses as well as short answers to the students’ questions.)
