PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a 3-4 week writing unit geared for ESL students who are beginners or newcomers. Most grammar used it in present tense, with some in the past tense (yet easily changed back to present tense). Some lessons and activities can be skipped depending on student needs. **Please check out the preview.** This writing unit is presented before I begin my expository unit which is also sold on Teachers Pay Teachers.
