How do you make your ESL classroom look different from a regular education room? Consider these multilingual classroom labels!
Each label takes up 1/4 of a page so they are nice and big, but not too obtrusive. There are 32 words for a total of 8 pages. Check out the preview of the first 4. They each feature the english word in big, bold black letters while the other languages are in a smaller font and in blue. Languages included are Chinese (simplified), Arabic, Russian and Spanish. To help aid meaning, I've included a picture. (If the word was too large, I faded the image and placed it in the background. These I starred below.)
32 words included are: door, window, garbage, closet, interactive board**, clock, projector, desk, chair, schedule, calendar, sharpener, library, computer, laptop, safe, paper, glue, pencils, erasers, recycling, flag, loudspeaker**, light switch, scissors, markers, highlighters, pens, crayons, stickers, notebook, book
*** UPDATE 10/16/16 ***
I added 8 more words: map, globe, whiteboard, printer, basket, book bag, ruler, tape
If you are fluent in any of the language I use and see a mistake, please feel free to send a correction! Also, I'm open to suggestions about other words to make for this set.
Note: Someone critique my choice of using 计算机 to translate the word "computer" in Chinese. I am aware of the 电脑 term, but will keep the original form since it is more formal.
