Hi everyone,
Here is the Friday freebie!
This week it is a great Spanish unit on Prefixes!

Click here to download this unit!

As teachers we know how important it is to have a firm understanding of prefixes. Research shows the importance of building students’ vocabulary. When students learn and review prefixes they see relationships between and among languages. Many prefixes have a basis in Latin – also the basis for Spanish. Unknown words or new vocabulary can be figured out by students when they use their knowledge of prefixes.
That being said, check out this great freebie:

This 27 page game packet increases your students' abilities to identify number prefixes in Spanish and gain meaning of unfamiliar words through play. By playing the 3 games included in PREFIJOS DE LOS NUMEROS students become familiar with these great prefixes. They learn that simply understanding and recognizing number prefixes can help them interpret the meaning of unfamiliar words, both mathematical and non-mathematical. This game package includes black line masters for:
-Bulletin board number prefix introduction sheets
-Game board
-Game cards
-Flashcards
-Concentration cards.
-A variety of games
-Assessment
-Activities to send home
-Easy to use teacher's guides
-Easy game assembly

Click here to download this unit! 
Please follow me and rate this wonderful freebie!

13 ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR CLASSROOM TEACHERS WITH ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS


13 ESSENTIAL TIPS FOR CLASSROOM TEACHERS WITH ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS

Buddy up! 

https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Fun-To-Teach/Category/ESL-Newcomers-321895From the very first day find a buddy or buddies for your ELL student.  Buddies can orient the student to the school, play at recess, or work together with the ELL on class assignments and projects.  Student to student interaction builds a sense of belonging and community.

Use technology!
Google translate, books on tape, and the wide variety of free phonics programs make learning fun!

Bring out your best charade moves! 
Model and demonstrate what you want the student to do.  Repeat the directions slowly or have a buddy repeat classroom directions.  Be redundant in the way you present information.  Gestures, actions, pictures, objects and writing are all great communication tools to use.  Choose and few and use them regularly.  Check for understanding frequently.

By Consistent! 
Create a variety of simple clear instructions, routines, procedures and expectations.  Using these consistent cues will offer predictably and comprehension for students learning English.

Don’t hesitate to talk! 
Speak to the student directly throughout the day.  Don’t worry if the student does not respond verbally, listening is learning for the ELL student.  Remember that learning is taking place even if the ELL does not speak for the first weeks or months.  Provide opportunities throughout the day for teacher to student interaction.  Don’t let your English learner be a wallflower!  Bring ELLs into your classroom community with lots of direct teacher talk and eye contact!

Be patient! 
When the student does not understand, say less and simplify your speech.


Write it up! 
Post written objectives, vocabulary, and assignments.  Preview and review and allow plenty of time to practice new vocabulary in authentic classroom situations

.

Hang it up!
Create and use visual demonstrations during your lessons.  Drawings, charts, maps, graphic organizers and pictures.  Hang them up to increase comprehension of the lessons you teach.

Get hands-on!
Use manipulatives.  Students learn without language when teachers offer learning through hands-on activities. 

Highlight it!
Highlighting vocabulary, important words or summarizing sentences are great ways of modifying assignments for ELLs.   English learners can understand difficult passages by identifying simpler language within the text that clarifies the meaning.

Show what you know! 
ELLs can communicate by labeling, drawing, copying, and underlining.  English learners can create outlines, make charts, diagrams and pictures to demonstrate their understanding and knowledge.  

Speak up when you don’t know!
Teach your ELLs what to do when they don’t know.  Instruct ELLs how to ask a buddy, raise a hand or call the teacher when they don’t understand what to do.   Modeling works great to make sure ELLs know how to ask for clarification.


Collaborate!
Communicate with ELD teachers for advice and assistance in creating a learning environment for your ELLs.  Classroom teachers with experience teaching English learners can be a wealth of knowledge.  Tap into their counsel.

Happy Teaching!

Summer is here!


Summer is here! 
Are you looking for a way to connect with students and their parents over the summer?  Mailing off a list of summer activities that promote literacy and math during the vacation months might be what you are looking for. Many times parents ask us for ideas of things they can do at home with their children during the summer, but lose the list as summer sets in.  Mailing them a checklist of summer activities connects you with them.   
Here is a list of great weekly activities parents can choose from:
·      Library Time!  Go to the public library once a week

·      Old and Young! Visit a senior center once a week and read someone there a book.

·      Estimate It!  Keep an estimation jar and have your kids guess the amount once a week!  Make sure they count the beans, rocks, etc. to verify their estimation.

·      Clean Up Day.  Choose a local park to visit weekly.  Pick up any trash you find and then have a picnic!

·      Journal Time.  Once a week have your child write in a summer journal.  Orally review the week together and then give your child time to write about the events of the past week.

·      Wrap It Up! At the beginning of the summer pick out 8 to 10 books that your child wants to read. Wrap them up in gift-wrap and once a week let your child chose the book he/she will read for that week.

·      Game Day!  Reserve one day a week for game day.  Gather together several games and let your children choose which game they want to play.  Young children can build math skills by playing go fish or concentration with a simple deck of cards.

·      Research It!  Catch bugs and research them with you kids!  Great fun and builds investigation skills in your children.

·      Put on a Play!  Once a week read a play with your children.  Dress up and act it out.  This is a great way to continue literacy during the summer.

·      Local Museum.  Call your local museum and ask when they offer free hours. In the summer many museums offer free hours and days.

·      Lemonade Stand!  Teach your child about money and responsibility by having a lemonade stand once a week during specific hours.  Shopping, counting change, and determining profit are all great Math skills for your child!

·      Keep in Touch! Let your kid write a family newsletter once a week.  This is a great way to learn about summarizing as they describe the weeks activities.  Kids can type up the newsletter, add photos and send them out to all the grandparents.


Happy Teaching!
