Our school, located in an urban area, is composed of 80% English Language Learners and about 20% students with special needs. Our school has 300 students between early childhood through fifth grade.
Most of our students speak another language and are learning English.
I am a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school. My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with an organized and meaningful learning environment. My students are all English Language Learners with a handful of them with learning disabilities. My students are in a 2nd grade inclusion classroom. They come from low income families with little to no resources.
My students need quick learning literacy games to do while in centers. The literacy games are made for hands-on discovery which will helps my students learn in a creative way. The independent card games that I have chosen take just minutes to play—helping students build grade-appropriate language skills in a fun and involving way! Each set highlights a different skill area from vocabulary to phonics. The activities presents real-world design challenges that help students explore important concepts hands on. Students plan, build, test and then improve their designs, while teachers use the detailed lesson plans to explain key concepts and help students troubleshoot design flaws. I have also adding table caddies so students can organize their group materials while in centers.
The Match & Sort Language Quickies develops skills in vocabulary acquisition and phonics, reading literature, reading informational text, comprehension, language, foundational reading and language conventions.
These resources will make it easy to teach and practice with my students in a creative, fun way!
