Grade Four ESL
English Language Learners need to get more credit! They are so smart that they can pick up the English language very easily if they know their first language well. My experience with Becky has been positive. So far we have moved from the phonetic sounding out of letters to whole words and now full sentences in just one month. We have been using letter blocks, DVDs, bilingual reading books, easy level reading books, Dolche activity sheets, flash cards, and hand made worksheets using picture sentences. I have used a great website to create worksheets for Becky to practice her printing http://www.handwritingworksheets.com/. I also like the 'Write to Read' software that the Peel Board of Education has. It is an interactive software that Becky can use to create new sentences and repeat them aloud.
