Coralee's shares: 1) My Location Booklet - this booklet is for Step 1 ELD students to help them to learn a few words from Geography and to help them orient to Canada and their home in Ontario. Students will learn map skills, write pattern sentences, practice printing and learn how to pronounce new words.
2) Canada's Government Booklet - this project helps Step 2 ELD students to learn about the 3 branches of government in Canada, their representatives, and the responsibilities of different levels of government. Students will learn research skills, vocabulary, map skills, and sentence writing.
Tawney's share: this workbook supports ELDs reading the Shadows Novel series, a high interest low vocabulary 8 book set that is great for ELDs because it allows them to enjoy mature themes through accessible text (gr 1-2 level decoding). Tawney provides a great model utilizing vocabulary study, dictation, pattern sentences, reflection, repetition and guided reading - my experience is this works really well for Intermediate and Senior Step 1-3 ELD program and Step 1 ESL program ELLs! Thanks Tawney :-)
