FREE Wish/Should Have/Were to Worksheets

This section is part of the conditionals category and currently has 57 worksheets available. A great thing about Busy Teacher is that these worksheets have been used by other English teachers so you can view descriptions, ratings, and comments for each worksheet on the site. This worksheet on hypothetical situations includes a lot of wish sentences and exercises. Giving your students all this material at once would be rather overwhelming so consider choosing the best exercises for your lesson and saving some activities for other class periods or homework assignments. At the very least you can use this as a resource for wish sentences instead of spending time creating your own. There are more worksheets available on this topic so you should take a moment to browse through them. Since all the worksheets are free and easy to download, there is no reason to just glance at the thumbnail images; download worksheets that grab your attention and look at the whole worksheet to make a better decision as to whether or not it would be appropriate for your students.
