Our English Language Learners are often lacking basic English vocabulary words. The lack of these words often leads to difficulty in reading, writing and general communication. This vocabulary packet is the first in a set of vocabulary packets designed to help give English Language Learners the vocabulary they need to be successful in the classroom.
Since not all English Language Learners are at the same level, this packet has 4 different levels (basic, developing, intermediate and advanced) to allow teachers to meet the needs of all of their students. While working with this packet, students learn, review, write with and play with, new vocabulary words. Each level also includes a cloze word assessment. Use this packet as a small mini lesson, or the basis of all of your ELL instruction, either way it will enhance the vocabulary of your English Language Learners.
This packet is based around Weather Vocabulary, with level 1 focusing on seasons and basic weather explanations (sunny, cloudy, rainy etc.), level 2 focusing on more specific terms for basic weather conditions (pouring, drizzle, flurry etc.), level 3 focusing on extreme weather conditions (hurricanes, blizzard, avalanche etc.) and level 4 focusing on meteorology words (precipitation, humidity, radar etc.)
You can also find this packet in my In the Neighborhood set
, which includes all of the vocabulary that ESL students need to introduce and talk about themselves.
