I have been working hard on figuring out ways to reach my new sweeties, and had an Ah Ha moment last week!
I told my babes...Go to your seats, grab a pencil, write your name, color, cut, then glue. I got ALL SORTS of "Say whaaaat?" stares, and I thought...oh wait! Maybe I should slow down a bit. I broke the directions down one by one for my class and that seemed to help, but they needed a little more. They needed to be able to look up and have a visual reminder!
DUH! Amber you taught ELL students for two years. YOU SHOULD KNOW THIS!
So I sat down and started making some visual directions for them. Do you want a peek? Of course you do!
