A quick vocabulary Do Now that introduces common and thematic vocabulary is what I use every morning with my beginner ELL students who have recently arrived to the United States. This worksheet is meant to be completed at the beginning of class within 5 minutes. It starts the morning off with a great way for students to see vocabulary represented with graphics and to see it translated. It also allows students to feel confident during the first few minutes of class.
This worksheet has translations for Spanish speaking students, but would need to be viewed/edited for non-Spanish speaking students.
