My students speak English as a second language. They come to school with very different backgrounds and experiences when compared to native English speaking children. Often my students are the only English speakers at home. Their parents are unable to help them with their school work. Many students are dual-served under ESOL and special education.
The students come to school every day with a smile on their face and a determination to succeed, despite the obstacle of learning a new language.
These games will allow my EL students to learn while having fun. My classroom is a place where EL learners can celebrate their cultural differences, and my students are eager to come together with their multi-cultural peers. Fun, engaging lessons and activities are a must in my classroom!
With listening and speaking being two key components of the English language, playing academic-based partner games hits those two skills, along with reading, every time a game is played!
These games, along with academic vocabulary practice, will help my students grow stronger in their English language proficiency. The best way to increase English proficiency is to use it. Instead of teacher-directed lessons, these games will allow the students to interact with their peers, and take ownership in their learning.
