Document ELLs' proficiency of the ELPS. It is a great tool to have for LPAC meetings and parent conferences. In my classroom, each standard is worth points (5 points for Listening, 15 points for Speaking, 25 points for Reading, 50 points for Writing Standards). My ELLs compete for popsicle parties based on the group's number of points at the end of a specific time period (usually 3 weeks). If you are interested in implementing the points reward system, look for my "ELPS Motivation & Reward System for ELLs."
