I am so happy to have an opportunity to giveaway a fun interactive speaking lesson "The Weather". In the United States all ESL students are only granted a 1 year waver from taking State Benchmark Tests that begin in 3rd grade. We all know that it is impossible for most ESL students who are entering an English speaking school for the first time to be proficient in Reading and Writing after only 1 year. When I taught in Anchorage, Alaska I ran a Learning Center where all new ESL students would come every morning. It was like a newcomer's center that some school districts have adopted. In my Learning Center we had small group instruction and several bilingual tutors working with me. Using Sheltered Instruction techniques students showed wonderful progress. Here is a sample of my 10 page lesson.
I always begin by teaching the targeted vocabulary.
Then guided practice is done in pairs
I hope you will enjoy using this with your students.
