Imagine we’re storytellers, capturing moments in time with our words! 📖⏳ Today, we’ll learn how to write sentences about everyday activities using both the present and past tenses. You’ll be able to talk about what’s happening now and what happened before. 

Expressing Present Habits:

Expressing Present Habits

Present tense is like a spotlight on actions happening now. Let’s write sentences about Audu’s present activities:

Audu dances well.

He eats amala very well.

He speaks English Language

Bola knows him

Talking About the Past:

Talking About the Past

Past tense is like opening a time capsule from yesterday. Let’s turn these sentences into past tense:

Audu danced yesterday.

He ate amala.

He saluted him

Deji played football very well

Practice Time: Everyday Activities:

Think of an everyday activity you enjoy, like playing or eating. Write a sentence about it in the present tense, then transform it into the past tense.


Understanding Habitual Sentences

Understanding Habitual Sentences

Habitual sentences talk about actions that happen regularly. They’re like your daily routine! Using the examples above, practice creating your own habitual sentences. And I will see you next week.


  1. Present Habitual Sentences:

Mary reads a book every night.

The birds sing in the morning.

I brush my teeth after breakfast.

We play soccer on Saturdays.

  1. Past Habitual Sentences:

Mary read a book every night last week.

The birds sang in the morning yesterday.

I brushed my teeth after breakfast yesterday.

We played soccer on Saturdays during the summer.

In today’s class, we delved into the skill of expressing everyday activities using both present and past tenses. We learnt that present tense shines a light on actions happening now, while past tense opens a window to actions that occurred before.

We also learned to talk about routines and past events. Habitual sentences became our tool to convey regular actions.


Can you think of an activity you do every day? How would you express it in both present and past tenses?
