What does one do with extra cups that they have in their office? Make present progressive sentence cups, of course! I just cut a slit down the center of the bottom of the cup so I could slide the verb picture cards in them. Then the students got to ask for what color they wanted to have turned around. Then they made the sentences. This was a fun little twist on the present progressive sentence patterns. The kids enjoyed choosing the cup and having it turned around to see what picture they chose.
I know....simple idea, but I still thought it was worth a share! :-)
