PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

English Language Learners (ELLs) often have trouble discerning between words that are auditorily similar (such as “in” and “and” – think about how many times you say something quickly and shorten “and” to “‘n”!) or words that do not have a concrete meaning (try defining “of”!). Native speakers have a natural ear for these differences, but students who are just learning English do not.

I have made this collection of word pairs from my years of experience teaching ELLs. I have purposely not included words that native speakers often confuse (such as “your” and “you’re”) because I assume that these will be explicitly taught in the general education classroom, while the word pairs on these posters would not.

Included in this purchase:
*Black and white student reference booklet (13 pages, plus cover)
*Color anchor chart posters (13 posters)

I like to use the posters in the ESL classroom, and then give the booklet to my students for reference at home or in the general education classroom.

Included word pairs: fell/felt, in/and, when/went, want/went, can/can’t, of/off, they/day, here/there, look/like, from/for, than/then, think/thing, our/are

Every word pair has a corresponding poster and a booklet page.

WIDA English Language Development Standards:
