PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this biographical article with activities mini-unit about George Washington, beginner to intermediate ESL students practice reading and responding to informational text. It can be used for an in-class activity, homework, or an emergency sub plan. I designed this resource with upper-level elementary, middle school, and high school ESL students in mind because I often find resources that are appropriate for my students' language levels, but not their age levels. My goal is to create ESL materials that are appropriate for both. Included in this resource are:

1. George Washington biographical article (2 pages)

2. Vocabulary: Academic vocabulary (Tier 2 & 3 words) in bold print throughout reading. Vocabulary chart, adapted from Learner's Dictionary, at the end of reading with definitions. Parts of speech and singular/plural words are also identified in the chart.

3. Spelling Practice: Students unscramble vocabulary words and write the correct spelling in sentences taken from the reading.

4. Vocabulary Practice: Students complete cloze sentences with the correct vocabulary word. Sentences are out of the context of the reading.

5. Vocabulary Cards: Words and definitions on cards. Great for matching activities, such as Memory, or word walls.

6. Grammar: Students conjugate verbs from reading into past tense.

7. Sequencing main events: Students list the main events of the text in order.

8. Question Annotation: Students circle question words, underline the subject once and verbs twice, and box the object.

9. Reading Comprehension: After students annotate questions, they answer comprehension questions using complete sentences.

10. Paragraph-Writing Outline: Sections for topic sentence, details, examples, and concluding sentence.

11. Paragraph Writing Template
