This month, our school is focusing on English language instruction. Administrator walkthroughs are underway, observing the types of instruction already addressing the needs of ELLs and identifying the areas where teachers may need support. I’m excited about this shift in focus because there are many powerful strategies to use for ELLs. All my students can benefit greatly from strategies that are intended to help English learners, such as the use of graphic organizers, dramatic interpretations of stories, explicit teaching and modeling of lessons, and opportunities to speak with me and with one another in their own classrooms and in the world.

Take a look at Supporting English Learners in the Primary Classroom. This is a great place to begin because the strategies presented are adaptable for any grade level. The rich examples will help you see how these strategies operate in the classroom This is one great blog post that arrived just in time for me!
