This kit contains everything you need to create an awesome "Tree of Language" bulletin board, including a trunk with a realistic bark texture, that will impress everyone at your school. Seriously, my colleagues were in awe of this tree, and I got a ton of compliments on the board. It was even awarded the school's bulletin board of the month by my principal!
I would recommend this board to ESL teachers as a way to teach others--both students and teachers--about language learning.
Included in this file:
✔ Materials list
✔ Step-by-step instructions to create the bulletin board
✔ Branch and leaf patterns to trace
✔ 50+ language facts to print on the leaves (editable)
The interesting language facts are regarding language learning, English Language Learners, and the English language in general.
►Studies show that children learn more when they make mistakes in language learning.
►There are significantly more rare words found in children’s books than in conversation between college-educated adults.
►Language learners can have an initial silent period of up to one year in length.
►There are 14 vowel sounds in English (compared to only 5 in Spanish).
