This unit is written for a fourth grade English Language Arts class at a bilingual school in Honduras. It is designed to be taught at the beginning of the school year, within the first 3-4 weeks. Since the unit focuses on classroom-community building and basic grammar, it could be adapted for a primary grade class of native English speakers or for a level 1 class of foreign language learners. Suggestions and resources for differentiation are mentioned for several lessons.
