I've been teaching ESOL at the elementary level since 2005. I support my ELLs in the mainstream classroom by co-teaching with classroom teachers. My materials are created for all students, but incorporate components that especially support ELLs in their comprehension of curriculum content and language acquisition.
I firmly believe in the gradual release method: I do, we do, you do with lots of hands-on, meaningful and engaging activities that students can relate to and can apply to the world around them. ELLs in the mainstream classroom CAN learn the grade level curriculum with the appropriate modeling, scaffolds and support.
