These 45 seasonally appropriate units address so many language goals in an easy to copy format. Each is 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 topic. Answer keys are provided.
A perfect companion for each theme is included in :
EET Comapanion for the Whole Year
These defining and describing worksheets are fun way to expand upon the theme of the week while also teaching writing and defining.
If you need something that targets the same goals but at a slightly lower level please explore these packs that allow for differentiation at 2 slightly lower levels but follow the SAME THEMES so they can be used during the same teaching sessions.
