Reported Speech Memory Game

(TESOL Worksheets--Reported Speech)
Google: drive, docs, pub
[Below is the cheat-sheet for the teacher.  The students see only the numbers (and not the sentences) written on the board.  The class is divided into two teams.  The teams choose numbers.  The teacher reads the sentence corresponding to each number.  The teams have to match find two matching sentences--sentences where the reported speech corresponds to the direct speech.
This is an activity that requires no production on the part of the students, but is based on the theory that repeated exposure to the input is of some value.  It can also be changed slightly to require the students to produce the reported speech after being supplied with the direct speech to get a full point.]
