Thank you!

I'm doing a lesson from a text book and was really struggling for an activity that uses present continuous.  This BAAM game is perfect!

Just wanted to update and say that this went over fantastically well with my intermediate level after school class. 

As I went through the powerpoint, I wrote up all of the grammar "formulas" on the board so we could have a quick reference during the class.  They totally ate up the  BAAM game, and they even wanted to play the same one again (I'm sure because they had been studying the BAAM locations!).  I have 90 minute after school classes, so for the final activity, I had the students pair up.  One student turned around so they couldn't see the TV.  We watched a couple of "Simon's Cat" videos from youtube, and the partner who was watching used the present continuous tense to explain everything in the video to their partner as it happened.  Worked great, there are no words in these videos, and the pace for most of them is fairly slow.  I watched them beforehand and came up with a very short vocab list and had the students translate them on the board, but these videos are really simple so I found they had no trouble finding things to say!
 
Here is a link for the Simon's Cat youtube page, there are quite a few to check out (they are hilarious), so enjoy: http://www.youtube.com/user/simonscat?blend=1&ob=4
