6 Best Writing Lessons Ever

December 2019 Grades 5-8 Lesson of the Month

Is there a such thing as the perfect gift? This month, discuss with your students what they think the perfect gift would be. Is it a gaming station, or maybe the newest iPhone? Do these gifts last a lifetime? In this lesson, students will be describing a gift that lasts a lifetime, by focusing on those abstract nouns that are often found in the theme of the stories we read.

Enhance your classroom for this lesson with our  Expository Skill Builders Poster Set!
