TEFL.net Site Of The Month ~ ESL Holiday Lessons
This resource site for teachers, developed by Sean Banville (Breaking News English), offers dozens of English lesson plans on a variety of holiday themes. Each month the featured lessons are placed at the top of the site, making it easy for teachers to plan supplementary activities ahead of time. The holiday lessons are popular with students because they extend beyond the usual Christmas and Halloween themes. As well as traditional holidays you will find unique lessons such as “World Television Day” and “Buy Nothing Day”. Each lesson covers all of the main skills, including listening. Activities include fill-in-the gap, put the text back together, and class surveys and discussions.
