ELL Newcomer Communication Card FREEBIE!
When new arrivals come into your classroom, making sure that they can communicate their needs and wants is essential. After all, as the teacher, don’t you want to know if a student has to use the restroom, needs to call a parent, or is feeling sick? Using this card will give your Newcomers a way to communicate with you and other school personnel, reduce their anxiety, and give them a sense of control. Post in each classroom the student visits throughout the day or laminate a copy for students to take with them.
