Do you remember that "light bulb" moment when you discovered new vocabulary words and they became the keys to open new knowledge for you when you could now explode anything in the world?
My students are mostly immigrant children who are learning English as their second language.
They work hard to learn the new culture, new language, and academic subjects at school. The most important component to everything is to learn the new vocabulary to begin the conversation of learning. My students who are in the 6th grade know approximately about 700 English vocabulary words in comparison to the native English speaking students who already knew more than 15,000 words by the time they enter middle school. Our school is one of the only International Baccalaureate school in our district where we teach students to value their learning and become global learners. Using their own background to foster sharing of culture and community building. Those students with more vocabulary words bank become mentors for the ESL students and we all work together to help each other learn and grow.
My students know that they have to work much harder to catch up and be able to read the same text as their peers. In our class, I want to teach my students the skills they need to break down words to find meanings to unknown words and become the detectives to their own word knowledge. The workbooks for Latin and Greek roots will be an extraordinary resource for us in class to learn more words. Just be studying prefixes, suffixes, and roots in a systematic way, our students can enhance their vocabulary and language skills.
This project is extremely important to us because our school do not provide support for buying outside materials.
This would be a wonderful help that we could have resources to help the students beyond the city curriculum. We are giving the students more than just vocabulary words -- we are giving them the keys to access interests, knowledge, and excitement in books and reading.Read More
