Hobbies - 6th grade

Hi, here I am again today. This is quite strange these days. Me, posting twice a day? Well, when you have to wait from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm for a meeting and you work in a school which is 70km away from home this kind of gives you extra time to "feed" your blog!
This is a worksheet I prepared for my 6th graders. It's mainly about hobbies but I took the chance to make a revision of the adverbs of frequency.
I hope it helps you save some time when you're working these topics.
All the best,

ps. As I usually ask: should there be any typo or English mistake in my work please report it to me. Thanks in advance!

I've written about this site quite many times already, and I intend to keep on sharing with you what they are up to. It is a site which I'm very proud to support since its main objective is helping others in any way they can. Their materials are excellent. They have great quality pictures and videos which you can use in your lessons. Better than that, you now have the lesson plans ready as well.

Explore and Enjoy!

All the best,
