In this video, we’re going to learn
how to use the words yesterday, today, and tomorrow to help us describe when things
happen. To help you understand this video,
you will need to know the days of the week. Let’s practice them now: Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. We call the day that we’re in or
the present today. We call the day before today
yesterday. And we call the day after today
tomorrow. Yesterday, today, and tomorrow. If today is Friday, yesterday it
was Thursday. We can see on our days of the week
chart that Thursday is the day that comes before Friday. Today it’s Friday. Tomorrow it will be Saturday. Saturday is the day after
Friday. So if today is Friday, yesterday
was Thursday and tomorrow will be Saturday.
Let’s look at some examples which
help us practice using the words yesterday, today, and tomorrow to describe events
Here’s our example: Here are
Matthew’s daily activities. Today is Sunday. What activity will he do
today? The question tells us that
today it is Sunday. What activity is Matthew doing
today? Today, Matthew will play on the
computer, so we know today it’s Sunday. The next part of the question
asks us what day was it yesterday. Yesterday is the day that comes
before today. Saturday is the day that comes
before Sunday, so yesterday it was Saturday.
In our first example, we used the
words yesterday and today to describe what somebody was doing.
In this example, we’re going to
practice using the words today and tomorrow: Here are Natalie’s weekly
activities. Today is Monday. What activity will she do
tomorrow? We know today is Monday, so
what’s the day tomorrow? Tomorrow, it will be Tuesday,
so what activity will Natalie do on Tuesday? Today is Monday, and Natalie
will go to the park. Tomorrow it’s Tuesday, and
Natalie will read a book.
So in this video, we’ve learnt that
today is the day it is now, yesterday is the day that comes before today, and
tomorrow is the day that comes after today.
