Learning Logs for Language Learners

November 06, 2015

"So, honey, what did you learn today?"  "¿Amor, qué aprendiste hoy?" is a question children hear every day and most often, their answer is, "Nothing." or "Cosas." "Stuff."  Why not create a assign a notebook to each student, a "Learning Log."  Every day or once a week, they write, draw, or make a chart of what they learned that day.  You can make it open-ended or specific.  For example, "What did you learn in math today?" Or, "Give an example of a metaphor in your learning log."  The possibilities are infinite.  Have parents sign after each entry.  Students can write in English or their home language or draw pictures and disgraces depending on their language level.

How DO we keep our students from falling behind?: Easier Assessement Every Day

June 08, 2015

We need to be sure we keep tabs on our students--but we often fail at this.  This scenario is familiar: you teach a lesson, explain the new concept, and set the students to work independently.  Some get started right away, after a few minutes of rustling around and a couple of questions, the room is quiet (mostly) and students seem to be working on this new information.  You answer questions for students who raise their hand or come to you.  However, when you grade their finished work, there are at least 3 groups: those who mostly mastered the concept, those who have a couple of misunderstandings, and a few who missed the mark completely.  But now it’s too late to...

Upper Grade Sort It! Games CCSS Aligned CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.CCRA.W.9

August 13, 2014

  One of the most popular games I use is the most simple: grab 3 medium bins or boxes, grab a pile of word or picture cards, line up your class and have them take turns sorting them into the correct bin (for example, amphibians, mammals, or reptiles OR prefix, suffix, word root etc.)  Make your own games to fit your curriculum or try this one: This set of Sort It! Games is specifically designed to make something that’s really hard for upper elementary kids and adults (!) - determining the strength of evidence to support statements - more fun. Students will enjoy playing Sort It! games.  It's an engaging hands-on way for students to practice working with content and...

Colorful Writing

November 19, 2013

Tip: Colorful Writing How do I do it?When students are doing writing projects (e.g. narratives, spelling sentences, journal entries, etc.), encourage them to use “colorful” words.  Model this by showing the students a simple sentence such as “The nice boy let me use his toy.”  Help them brainstorm different ways to say this or to add more detail, such as “The generous boy shared his new Star Wars toy with me.”  Ask them, which sentence sounds more interesting? Which one creates a better image in your head? If you want them to use this strategy in story telling, have them rewrite the sentence “‘Nice to meet you,’ she said.”  Is there a more interesting way to say this?  What about...
