These 15 seasonally appropriate theme-based units address so many language goals in an easy to copy format. Themes are divided into 5 timely themes per month and provide 2 in-depth learning pages and answer keys for each theme. I have been using these worksheets for 2 years with my own students and they are VERY well received by middle and high school students. These worksheets focus on semantic and syntactic skills that many of our students lack and that are required to pass standardized assessments. Each unit addresses synonyms, antonyms, multiple meaning words, definitions, analogies, categorization, comparing and contrasting, idioms, word ordering, grammatical editing, and combining sentences (phew) all while incorporating interesting facts about the theme. Answer keys are provided.
