Food and Drinks Vocabulary Posters

There will be a lot of holidays and celebrations till the end of the year. And the best attribute of any holiday is, of course, tasty food. Besides major holidays such as Thanksgiving Day and Christmas, there are also a few celebrations dedicated to food according to my classroom calendar. These are National Sandwich Day on November 3, National Cake Day on November 26, National Cookie Day on December 4, and National Cupcake Day on December 15. We usually talk a lot about food with my students these days and I display my printable food and drinks vocabulary posters on the classroom walls.

Veterans Day Reading Comprehension (Free PDF)

I dedicate at least one lesson to every major American holiday. Even though my students learn English as a foreign language, I believe it is important for students to know more about the culture of the English-speaking countries. And since I focus mostly on American English, the United States’ holidays and celebrations represent a special interest for me as sources of teaching materials. When learning about American holidays, an English learner can pick up vocabulary from all areas of human life. According to my classroom calendar, the next major national holiday in the United States is Veterans Day. And I have some relevant reading comprehension materials to share with my fellow EFL and ESL teachers.
