3 years at 4 different elementary schools in NC.
Relaxed and fun! I try to create an environment where my ELLs feel comfortable speaking English or their native language. I do mostly literature based units to help my ELLs practice reading, gain vocabulary and build background. We do activities like ice cookies, make crafts, perform plays, and play games to give them experiences they probably do not have at home.
