This is a frayer model sheet geared to ESL students. It has a space for "native language translation", asks for two original sentences, a picture, definition, and synonyms. I used this with my beginner ESL class. I asked the students to walk around the classroom and ask students who speak other languages to translate it into their native language. It helped facilitate speaking across different native-language students (sometimes they cling to only the people who share their home language). I had students color once they were done working to make beautiful word wall sheets.
I also liked to write the words ahead of time in large print with a sharpie. I work from our current vocab list and try to make sure no more than 2-3 kids (in distant parts of the classroom) are working on the same word.
For a 45 minute class period, have each student work on two OR have students pair up wit the other student doing the same word and present their words to the class. Encourage choral repetition of each word.
