This resource contains 8 self-correcting clip cards and a recording worksheet.
Each card features a Thanksgiving scene and two basic sentences - one contains the correct preposition of place and the other contains an incorrect preposition of place. Students choose the correct sentence and clip it using a clothespin or paper clip. Students can then flip the card over and check their answer against the correct one given on the back. The correct answer can then be recorded on the recording worksheet.

- Thanksgiving vocabulary

To Prepare the Cards
The clip cards are quick and easy to prepare, and full instructions are included. Simply print the cards on white cardstock. Cut around the outside edge and along the horizontal dotted line in the middle of the page. DO NOT cut along the vertical line in the middle of the page. The two top cards and the two bottom cards should still be attached along the vertical line. Fold each card in half along the vertical line and glue together. Your clip card is ready to use. For extra durability, laminate the cards.
Using the Clip Cards in the Classroom
Provide students with clothespins or paper clips. If you wish for your students to record their answers, provide them with a copy of the recording sheet as well. Students hold the clip cards so that the picture and sentences are facing them. They then use a clothespin or paper clip to choose the sentence with the correct preposition. Students can check their answers against the correct one given on the reverse side of each card.
Using the Clip Cards in Your Online ESL Lessons
These clip cards work great in online ESL lessons as well. Simply hold the card up so that your student/s can see the picture and read the sentences. Point to the first sentence and ask the student/s to read it. They can then indicate if the sentence is correct or incorrect by saying “Yes” or “No” or giving the thumbs up or thumbs down signal. Repeat this process for both sentences. You can then turn the card over for the students to check their answer. These clip cards are perfect as a warm-up activity and are a great addition to any ESL lesson in November.
