Get your students to become active participants in any academic conversation! This is a great student resource especially for dual language, bilingual, Spanish as a foreign language classrooms, and ELL support.
Use this resource in all aspects of the classroom to empower students to become active speakers and listeners, no matter the academic level or language ability. This is a key tool when incorporating the Math Workshop Model, Literature Circles, or just everyday class discussions.
DIRECTIONS: Fold the document in half and laminate so that one side is English and the other is Spanish. Have students put the resource in a folder for easy access when needed, store a few in a basket at the guided reading table, and place a few around the room and at center stations to promote productive discussion when you're not even looking!
Color-coded sentence starters and language prompts to match this resource (to be placed on a key ring); students can have their own set or a set or two can be placed in areas of the classroom where they are easily accessible at all times (in a basket in the middle of the guided reading table or student tables/desks, etc.).
