💕Phrasal Verbs

Hi everyone!
💕I love phrasal verbs.  This is such a tricky area of English for my intermediate and early advanced language learners that I wanted to learn more about them.  I found out that there are 3 types of multi-word verbs:  phrasal verbs, prepositional verbs and phrasal-prepositional verbs.


🌻What are Phrasal Verbs?   In a nut shell, phrasal verb proper is made from a verb and an adverb. Phrasal Verbs can or cannot have direct objects. This appears to be where the 3 types of multi-word verbs differ.

When a phrasal verb has a direct object we can usually separate the parts.  For example we say,
  • "Take off your coat." 
  • "Take your coat off."
  • "Take it off."
But we don't say
  • "Take off it."
  • "It take off."

Here are some common Phrasal Verbs with Take:
Get up
Switch on
Turn down
Brake down
Put off
Take out

💥Teaching Dolch Words💥


🌻Hello everyone,
Here is some information on teaching Dolch Words.  I think they are so important to teach all students, but especially struggling readers and  English Language Learners.  Dolch Words can give all students the boost they need to succeed.  Grab our freebie for First Grade Dolch Sight Words here!





What are Dolch Sight Words?
According to Wikipedia, The Dolch word list is a list of frequently used English words compiled by Edward William Dolch, a major proponent of the "whole-word" method of beginning reading instruction. The list was first published in a journal article in 1936 and then published in his book Problems in Reading in 1948. Dolch compiled the list based on children's books of his era, which is why nouns such as "kitty" and "Santa Claus" appear on the list instead of more high-frequency words. The list contains 220 "service words" that have to be easily recognized in order to achieve reading fluency in the English language. The compilation excludes nouns, which comprise a separate 95-word list. Between 50% and 75% of all words used in schoolbooks, library books, newspapers, and magazines are a part of the Dolch basic sight word vocabulary.
These lists of words are still assigned for memorization in American elementary schools. Although most of the 220 Dolch words are phonetic, children are sometimes told that they can't be "sounded out" using common sound-to-letter implicit phonics patterns and have to be learned by sight; hence the alternative term, "sight word". The list is divided according to the grades in which it was intended that children would memorize these words.   Wikipedia



Why do they call them Sight Words?
Sight words, often also called high frequency sight words, are commonly used words that young children are encouraged to memorize as a whole by sight, so that they can automatically recognize these words in print without having to use any strategies to decode.


Why are Dolch Sight Words important to teach?
Sight words are very important for your child to master because, believe it or not, “sight words account for up to 75% of the words used in beginning children’s printed material”, according to Study to Identify High-Frequency Words in Printed Materials, by D.J. Kear & M.A. Gladhart. There are different sight words for every grade level. Each set of words builds upon the other, meaning that once your child learns the sight words in Kindergarten, he will be expected to still recognize those words as he learns new words in first grade, and so forth.



Practicing Dolch Sight Words
💥Introduce Dolch new sight words in isolation,
💥Use familiar books and identify new and old Dolch sight words in text
💥Schedule daily Dolch sight word instruction, but keep it short under 10 minutes


Here are some resources for Dolch Sight Words:

Hi everyone,

We are knee deep back at school and looking good.

While you think about your classroom set up will you take a moment and make sure that:

 

 

1.              All of your English Language Learners are facing you at their desks.  To understand the content you are teaching they need to see your body language, facial expressions and  gestures, etc. so make sure they are not sitting with their backs to the teacher at any time.

 

2.             Each ELL should be sitting next to a strong native English speaker.  This provides an age appropriate English model.

 

3.             Assign a buddy peer to make sure your ELLs understand each direction and assignment you give.  Teach the buddy peer how to check their ELL buddy to make sure they are  understanding.

Have a great year!
