Things happen in our classrooms – and in our lives – so have a resource of “zero-prep” lessons – available for free – can come in handy.

I’m not sure how ELL accessible these lessons are, but the site looks intriguing:
Check out https://t.co/Io3CEr8yrD – it's a great one day lesson and if you do it with students 3x in 3 weeks, they pretty much know what to do (that's what the data says). Probably doesn't help now, but for the future. Hope you feel better!
