SL Canadian Celebration Bundle of 4 (Level 3)
This bundle of lesson units is a great way to save almost a third of the cost of the four sold separately. All are designed for high-beginner Canadian ELLs, reading at about a grade 7 level. The four topics are: Terry Fox, Remembrance Day, Christmas in Canada, and Valentine’s Day. All of the products here reproduce well in black and white, and all include a teacher’s answer key.
