Are you a classroom teacher that has been given a new student that speaks very little or no English? Are you a first-year ESL/ELL teacher not sure how to best support your students? Are you looking for a program that will give your ELL students a strong foundation to quickly and confidently flourish in the English language? Are you looking for a way to reach your Non-English students and help them to feel welcomed and supported in your classroom?
This program has been created to support any teacher or assistant who is in need of quality lessons that will give your ELL students the tools necessary to begin learning English. It is made with newcomer students in mind so that you can create a loving and encouraging environment for these students so that instead of being fearful of school, they feel excited to be at school.
This curriculum aligns with the WIDA Framework and will give your ELL students authentic practice with the English language through listening, speaking, reading and writing from the start! This curriculum is filled with interactive and engaging activities to promote confidence and excitement to embrace this new language.
Why this program?
In my early years of teaching, I often times did not know best how to support my ELL students nor have the time to give those 1-2 students the materials they really needed and would end up giving them a worksheet or something easy in hopes they could at least learn a few vocabulary words from. After receiving my ESL endorsement and working with ELL students for many years, I have become passionate to help give ELL students ample opportunities to learn and to give support to teachers by creating a more engaging curriculum for ELL Learners.
This program goes way beyond the typical worksheet. It incorporates WEEKLY rich vocabulary, practiced through many different forms, along with an interactive grammar notebook activity, speaking games, authentic reading and writing opportunities and an extra practice opportunity for homework. Lesson plans are provided for every day so even a teacher assistant or parent volunteer could support your ELL students well. The most important piece of this curriculum is the joy on the student's faces when they begin to recognize vocabulary and speak sentences in a new language.
