Two writing tasks are included: a) Students invent a holiday and write an acrostic poem about it and b) students select and then describe how they celebrate one of the holidays. A grammar task to rewrite the text on the posters by including the definite article "the" is also included. Blank acrostic poem templates for each holiday are provided so students can also write their own poems about the holidays. The discussion topics can be used with both native English speakers and English Language Learners, including ELLs at a beginning level of proficiency.
