Supporting ELL Students - Word Collector Journal
This Word Collector Journal was created for emerging English Language Learners.
I found myself working with a small intervention group of elementary students who were new to the United States. These students were so curious about knowing the names of everyday objects around them. They constantly asked “What’s this?” I would give them the word for the object in that moment, but found that they would quickly forget and want to hear the word again the next day. In an attempt to support these students in building their English vocabulary and confidence, the Word Collector Journal was born.
Students would carry their iPad with them and collect words throughout the day. Additionally, if they forgot a word they previously learned they could refer back to their journal and refresh their memory. Have the word accessible for students in written and audio format was extremely helpful in growing their oral and written English language skills.
