Filled with activities and ideas you can use right away, this sampler includes 20 freebies that address the needs of English Language Learners at beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels of English language proficiency. Written by TpT teacher-authors who work with ELLs and organized by grade span ranging from PreK through Adult Education, these resources can be used in a variety of instructional programs: mainstream and ESL classes, bilingual and dual immersion programs, and adult ESL programs. As well, some of the resources are aligned with the Common Core State Standards. Just click on the freebie cover images inside the sampler to download them.
In addition to the freebies, each teacher-author has included a suggestion for how teachers can help ELLs succeed in school as well as a personal insight into why they enjoy working with English Language Learners. Each teacher-author's page shows either the freebie in action or a preview of it. Links to other great resources for teaching ELLs are included, too.
English Language Learners are everywhere! They could be the only ELL in a regular education class, they could be in an ESL class made up of only ELLs in the United States or in another English-speaking country, or they could be a class of students learning English as a foreign language in other countries. Whatever your teaching context, this sampler offers a great collection of resources for teachers who have ELLs in their classes!
