Who It’s For: Beginning Language Learners Working on Varieties of Simple-Present Sentences with Phrasing for Timing & Existence
Why You Need It: One kind of sentence structure beginners may encounter includes impersonal it (vs. there)—often used with expressions of time, dates, temperature, and existence / location. These topics elicit plenty of vocabulary for learners to read and write.
What You’ll / They’ll Do:
 Read & understand a strip story about (futile) attempts to get together. Match statements to illustrations and calendars.
 Work with abbreviations and notations for days, months, dates; times in cities, states; kinds of weather.
 Review spelling of initial consonant sounds that might be confused. Notice capitalization and punctuation. Correct vocabulary in T/F statements. Do a crossword puzzle. Print or write sentences from dictation. Compare handwritten with printed content.
