January Monthly Planner (and a FREEBIE) for Middle School ELA Class

January is the month of new beginnings. Just like me, maybe you are also thinking about the ways in which you can get your students engaged and develop their skills in your ELA class after you come back from the break. If you are looking to put together an efficient January monthly planner for your middle school ELA class, you are in the right place.
