It forces the kids to stay familiar with past learning, and to research some new topics.
This unit contains 9 monthly review calendars. I use this in my classroom as an independent activity. I pass one out at the beginning of the month and they have the entire month to get it done. It is designed to review ELA concepts such as grammar, writing, spelling, figurative language and vocabulary. I love this as a learning tool! It is quick and easy to grade and a great independent activity for students.
