Yay! That would be great! Would it be possible for me to go ahead and purchase it now so I can get started and then get the revised version next week when you complete it? Thanks.

Hi Joanne,

I am thinking about purchasing your 5 folktales package. However, as an Sheltered English Immersion kindergarten teacher, some of my students need extra support with visuals. Would it be possible for you to include the character images beside the name of the character who is speaking in the reader's theater scripts? I've seen other teachers on TpT do it and it is super helpful for my kids! Thanks so much!

Hi,

Yes I could do that. It's a good idea. I probably won't have time until the weekend however. I should have the update up by feb. 11 if you are still interested.

Hi, there is one page that has the following soft g words:
Jog, jam, gym, junk jinx, gem, jungle
but that's all so probably not enough for what you need. Sorry about that.

Buyer re: Illustrated Phonics Word Wall: Short Vowels, Long Vowels, Blends
Hello. This is my first year with a sheltered ELL group. I teach 4th but the majority of that group is at a 1st/2nd level. I love this resource and think it would be a great fit, but I'm unsure how to implement it instructionally. Do you have any suggestions?
October 27, 2013 Report inappropriate comment

Ms Joanne  (TpT Seller)
Thanks for your compliment about this resource. Here are some things I did with it:
Have your ELL kids write sentences with the words. If they are real beginners you can give them a starter like, "I like" or "I have" and they can add a word from the word family, such as "cat" and you teach them that you have to add "the" or "a" before cat. This is a way of introducing articles. If they are at a higher level they can write more complex sentences and then you fix the mistake in the sentences. This way the students are writing what they want to write and you are teaching the grammar in context, making it more likely they will remember it.
You can do sorting activities - cut just the words and have them separate them into word families or into long/short vowels. If your ELL students have difficulties with the l/r sound you can work on sorting the blends cards and practice making oral sentences with them, perhaps recording them on an I-pad or other device you have in your class.
You can play matching games to build vocabulary and again have the student say/write a sentence when they make a match. If saying a sentences have them record it. This makes it more fun and gives you a record of what they are saying and what language areas they need to work on. Also quiet students are more likely to talk into a device and to say more than in front of a group of students.
Use the cards as a pronunciation practice - have them read a list of cards in the word family and really work on saying the sound, making it seem like a phonics practice rather than pronunciation practice can make some student less self-conscious.
Overall, I think if you can combine the phonics lessons with language development and use the visuals to help the students say what THEY want to say and then from that adjust your instruction it will be more powerful for the students. If your ELL students are literate in their first language, you should also be able to go through the different sounds faster than in 1st grade because they already have the concept of reading and only really need to concentrate on learning the new sounds. Good luck and let me know of you have any other questions.

Hi Yvette,

I'm sure your son will enjoy his dual language class. I teach grade 1 French immersion in Canada which is very similar. There is no English translation because the point of dual language is to be immersed in the language and learn that way rather than through translations. The pictures in the PowerPoint are there to help build understanding without the translations. In any case, I'm happy to give you the translation. Slides 4-13 all use the same phrase:
"in the classroom there is a "
Slide 4: teacher (female word for teacher)
Slide 5: teacher (male)
Slide 6: blackboard
Slide 7: desk
Slide 8: door
Slide 9: pencils
Slide 10: notebook
Slide 11: desk
Slide 12: computer
Slide 13: books
Slide 14: hello class, how are you
Slide 15: very well thank you and you miss
Slide 16: listen please
Side 17: look here please
Slide 18: stand up please

Buyer re: Les Phrases - French Sentence Builder
Do you have a space in room dedicated to this wall?
November 4, 2012 Report inappropriate comment
Ms Joanne
Ms Joanne  (TpT Seller)
Hi, no I cut up each word (verb, adjective, subject, mots utiles, conjugations) and make cards. I then use the cards in a centre where the students pick a subject card, a verb card and an adjective cards and then use the verb ending cards and the "mots utiles" cards to physically make a sentence. This is shown in the preview page.
I use it as a hands-on activity, bit I think you could put the different pages together up on a wall and have the student write sentence by looking at the wall if you wanted to. Hope that answers your question.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 20 years in a variety of school systems. I've taught K-5, but have been in Grade 1 for the last 10 years, in French Immersion in Canada and in English at an international school in Japan. I've also taught ESL overseas and in Vancouver. I love teaching language and love Grade 1 where you see those huge gains, academically and socially.

MY TEACHING STYLE

Hands-on and differentiated to meet individual student needs. I like to have the kids busy and engaged. My goal is to make all the children feel valued and challenged without undue stress or frustration on their part. I am mostly concerned with fostering a "love of learning" and an "inquiring mind" while teaching valuable, lasting skills.
