FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “2024 May Calendar for $0 - Holidays and Observances for ELA Class Teachers”

by ELA Activities by SNAPPY DEN
Kindergarten - 8th Grade

Do you want a FREE May calendar with daily, weekly and monthly holidays and observances you can use in your ELA class? May is the month of living intensely. Just like me, maybe you are also thinking about the ways in which you can get your students engaged and develop their skills in your ELA class after you come back from the break. If you are looking to put together an efficient May monthly planner for your middle school ELA class, you are in the right place.

If you are like me, you love to have things planned out for every month in advance. However, life sometimes gets in the way and sometimes I do things at the spur of the moment. Having a pack of fresh ideas right at my finger tips helps me every single time.  

So, even if you are a planner or a last-minuter, I want to share with you some plug and play resources that will make this May memorable for your students.

Stick with me because at the end I have a little surprise for you! Let’s dive into some resources that will make your class simply amazing.
