This resource has pictures (e.g. Statue of Liberty, apple pie etc) followed by a sentence under which is an English sentence then a Spanish translation so that any current or future Level 1 ESL students of Spanish-speaking backgrounds won't be left out.
Supportive of its pictures with easy to read text, there is a section of 20 unique word searches in English that teach not only words but (due to the words being in the context of sentences) also the information about America. Some are long (about a page) and others are short (about half a page). There are also three cryptogram (fun word game) activities.
As the reading section, you may seat students as buddy pairs or in work groups of 2-3 to help each other with the fun activities since some students may not be as familiar with cryptograms.
REASONS TO CONSIDER MORE PURCHASES FROM THE STORE: 1. plenty of material priced fair, 2. lots of material reusable over the years ahead, 3. buying it is more convenient than trying to make it all yourself, 4. students enjoy the fun parts making the work more fun too helping result in more time-on-task with naturally more learning growth, 5. most word searches have a format helping teach information with the words, 6. most packages are complete with reading components tied into tests with keys, other handy and helpful material, 7. attractive and professional looks, 8. Many of my items include some Spanish to help ESL/ELL students not be totally left out; 9. you’ll love it that your students stay busy learning like happy bees at the honey hive of knowledge, your classroom, even as they have in mine since the resources have been teacher and student-tested.
Note: Spanish used in products in the store here is more in the informal Latino Spanish actually used by most students from Latin America rather than the formal Castillian of Spain; so there are some differences in grammar, spelling and or vocabulary even as there are with American and British English.
Note also: Many of my products mention and support educational standards such as used in various states, districts and also the Common Core State Standards written and developed by the National Governors’ Association Center for Best Practices and Council of Chief State School Officers © Copyright 2010. The afore-mentioned do not endorse, sanction or approve this publication or any other publication/s by this author/publisher. Any use of “aligned with,” “aligned to” or the like simply mean in the supportive spirit of and again do not state or imply an endorsement.
Thanks for considering this, please come again and be telling friends of this store, its Freebies, etc.
