Help me give my students the gift of English by empowering phonics skills needed for my English Language learners who struggle with academic language and many are referred for special education due to this struggle.
Out school is a Title I school located on the north shore of Staten Island. The students enrolled vary in ethnicities, cultures, disabilities and academic abilities. Our students work hard and are eager to learn.
Academically, many students struggle with academic language and many are referred for special education due to this struggle.
One hundred percent of our students receive free lunch. Due to the high demands of technology and other resources our school has limited resources. These at home learning learning resources can assist English Language learners acquire the necessary academic language needed to be successful in integrated learning.
Many of my students are new to the country and are learning English as they learn a new culture as well. This can be very difficult for them; Therefore, these materials can be used to teach newcomers the English language and build their vocabulary through the use of visuals and realia objects. Furthermore, these materials can build their language, though the use of oral language and phonological awareness activities. ENL students must hear and see the language in order to speak the language with their peers and attempt to learn academic vocabulary to be successful in the classroom. These materials are perfect as an engagement activity to help my students build their English language.
