I am a teacher of ESL or English as a Second Language students. They are fluent in both English and Spanish. I am the designated teacher for English language arts as well as mathematics. So far with literature, we have read Holes and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. I love using quality literature to help students with their English language learning and to also help with the enjoyment of reading. The students are very engaged and very eager to learn and read these amazing stories and I would love to get them more!
Since my students are English language learners, using quality literature will rise their level of understanding and vocabulary as well as encourage their enjoyment of reading!
Matilda is an amazing story that will gather their interest and engagement.
This is not only one of my favorites but the favorites of SO many people! Roald Dahl is an amazing author and I would love to give my students the experience of his creative work. We will also use the story to connect with everyday life and learn the elements of the work as well. Quality literature will encourage the enjoyment of reading as well as develop their English language skills for the future.
