I use picture vocabulary/spelling lists with my lower level ELL students. However, these lists could be used by any teacher and for any student. I usually focus on a theme or a phonics skill. The pictures help with comprehension for ELL students. I usually print them out for my students every Monday. You could also display them on a TV screen/smartboard, etc. Students copy the words twice on their spelling list paper so they have a copy at school and at home. Then, we have a test on Friday over the words. They complete a regular spelling test in addition to a picture match and dictated sentence.
For the test, the students have a word bank and they match the picture to the word by writing the word on the line next to the picture. They also have a sentence dictated to them that uses some of the words in the sentence. A word bank is provided as well. This is a great way to teach spelling and vocabulary at the same time. It is intended for lower level ELL students but could be used for any student that it would benefit. The spelling list has the dictated sentence. (answer key) The students take a regular spelling test over the words as well as this assessment. This would be great to use with Adult ELL education classes, too. Keep an eye out for more lists and tests!
