BusyTeacher 'cheat sheets' teach you holiday magic
Making sure that your students are prepared to face national holidays in an English speaking culture isn't just about turning them into well-rounded ESL speakers. It's also an opportunity to highlight the fun part of language learning. Often, students' brains can be overloaded by too many hard facts at once and they may start to experience burn out. A "day off" for a holiday lesson that includes some subtle skill-strengthening activities can be a great way to provide students with a cultural introduction. At the same time, you give them a short break from hard lessons, so that they can focus on the fun aspects of learning a language and return refreshed the next day.
