English Language Learners Are Artists Too!

Help me give my students an iPad to encourage their creative writing and artistic skills. My ESOL students will be able to practice their English along with communicating with others in creating skits.

My Students

I teach in a fabulous elementary school. Recently, we have been designated as a Gold STEAM school. I would like to continue our STEAM adventure for this new school year with my fourth graders. Math and science will be infused to show they go hand-in-hand with reading and writing. I want to introduce them to programs like Discovery Learning to supplement their science text. We have an incredible robotics program in the school and enrichment programs that encourage students in these subject areas. I'm excited to show students how these subjects are interdisciplinary.

My Project

My English Language Learners (ELL) will be able to use the iPad to write creative skits and record themselves performing it. They will also learn how to include their voice recordings on a QR code. They will be able to scan their codes with the iPad and hear each other’s performances. They will do the same with videos. They will use the iPads to record, edit, and publish their video on different social media platforms. My English Language Learners will practice developing their creative writing, language and literacy, and performing skills. Using Art will help them express themselves and learn English.
