My students need this novel and it's escape the room culminating activity to enhance their English language (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) skills while encouraging teamwork and cooperation.
Imagine being in middle school again. Now imagine the majority of the kids in your school live in an affluent area, are in PreAP classes, and you are struggling with the English language and trying to fit in when middle school is already hard enough. As the lead ESL teacher on our campus, I teach reading to all of our ESL students - whether they are newcomers or long term English language learners. Every day we are working on becoming proficient in English with our listening, speaking, reading and writing. We have students whose home language is Mandarin, Vietnamese, Portuguese, Spanish, French, Ibo, and Urdu just to name a few. We have ESL students who have been in our country for just a few weeks and others who were born here. My students are from all over the globe - Columbia, Honduras, France, Serbia, Mexico, Vietnam, China, all over Africa, and Brazil. They bring with them all of their culture and experiences to my classroom and we are always learning from and with each other. We are always trying out new reading activities integrated with technology and other core courses to get the kids practicing all areas of English acquisition.
My ESL students benefit from any activities that incorporate listening, speaking, reading and writing to help them become proficient in English as their second language. The novel "Escape from Mr. Lemoncello's Library" will provide high interest text about fictional characters their own age who are experiencing an escape the room activity. This novel comes with an added bonus of a library escape the room activity created by the author and his team similar to the one the characters experience which can be used in our own school library. The novel and activity will allow my students to practice their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills while working cooperatively to escape. Students will obviously work on reading skills while reading the novel. Through literary response logs, students will enhance their writing skills. Both during literature circle discussion time and during the escape the room activity, students will work on their listening and speaking skills. Working as a team, they will understand the value of listening to each other and effectively expressing themselves verbally in order to escape.
