Overview

This unique, hands-on resource provides more than 200 student worksheets and teacher-directed activities to help elementary students learn English as a second language. The activities provide real experiences to build students' knowledge through techniques that offer review, expansion, connection, and reinforcement. Organized into 10 monthly sections to fit the school year, Ready-to-Use ESL Activities for Every Month of the School Year helps students acquire English naturally by focusing on the how-to aspect of things, not just on how to describe them. For your convenience, the materials are printed in a big 8 1/4" x 11" lay-flat binding that opens flat for easy photocopying of activity pages for your class. Each month contains a full array of delightfully illustrated activities based on a Natural Language Acquisition approach to language development and offers more than the usual reading and writing activities; children experience art, cooking, music, gardening, and drama through Mother Goose rhymes, fairy tales, and other story frames. Teacher notes and additional activities complete each month's offering of learning experiences with reproducible pages.
