English Language Materials for Struggling Language Learners~

My students need materials, including folder games, stamps and a magnetic vocabulary building center, for language learning and building reading skills. These items will be utilized in the small group setting to build English language fluency.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Please help create fluent and strong language learners and readers. Being in an above capacity school, struggling readers and language learners would benefit from all the help that they could get and wonderful materials for vocabulary and reading building.

My students attend an elementary school that is over 800 students, most of them being ESOL.

Many students struggle in reading, and need help building their vocabulary and reading skills. Many are very excited about learning and enjoy using a variety of materials to help them learn in class.

My Project

The resources requested are language and reading building materials. Vocabulary folders would aid in learning and reinforcing vocabulary words, as well as a game to make learning vocabulary fun. Phonics stamps would not only make learning spelling and phonics fun, but incorporate a hand on approach to learning, which is very beneficial to young learners.

These students need a lot of help, and many don't receive much at home.

These materials would be a wonderful addition to not only the classroom but for the students as well. At their young age, reading is such an important piece in their learning lives and these materials would go towards help building their reading and vocabulary skills to be successful all school year.
