Regardless of whether you are on-site or online, this unit will fit your needs and have your students speaking and writing about these topics in no time! It is especially designed with your middle and high school students in mind. The digital resources are compatible with Google Classroom.

This is the fifth unit I teach with my newcomers. This unit is part of an 11 unit series you can find here. The unit takes 3.5 to 4 weeks. I teach it in nine or ten 80 minute block periods, but it can be adapted to fit your needs. It covers months of the year, seasons, and colors. Students will know how to write the date (American English) and speak it correctly.
