I'm guest blogging over at the iTeach Third blog... I'm so honored to have been asked to share some tips and I've been meaning to share some SUPER simple-even-your-grandma-can-do-them-if-she-was-a-teacher-that-is supports to keep students engaged in the learning they are doing while building their vocabulary. It all started out to support my English Learners, but has morphed into my common practice now.
Head over now, bring some snacks (because it is a long one, folks...#longwinded), and enjoy. :)
|The beauty of it all, as that even though I began using a lot of these strategies to support my ELs, it actually benefits ALL my students... including my native English speakers. And that's typical of all ELs supports- they are not meant just for ELs so even if you don't have any in your classroom or very few, these strategies and supports can be used in your room as well!|
