Day Chart and Past Simple Practice

   I give this chart to my students and they have to fill it in every (other) day. There is an example in the first row.  In each lesson we talk about the  days we haven't seen each other. It's a good way to practise the Past Simple tense. 
  First they make affirmative sentences about each item in their chart. Then I make some false statements and they have to correct them (using negative sentences). Then they check how well I remember the information just provided by asking me questions.
    They can do this in pairs. The chart can be used for practising the Present Simple tense as well. For example, On Mondays we usually have six lessons, but yesterday we had only four.
