Reflection: ELL Students Chant, Chant, Chant - Section 2: Independent Writing


The Chant Lesson had high levels of engagement for all students.  I think the A-Z Taxonomy generating form really helped all students be successful.  The student who wrote the Apricots probably never would have thought of this topic if it hadn't been for generating the idea of apricots for an idea that started with A. I included an ELL student's poem about Puppies in this section because it showed gave me some insight into her vocabulary.  I noticed that her vocabulary and use of English words was limited.  More limited than I previously thought.  Also one student chose to read her Unicorns are Magical poem at our Poetry Night Celebration hosted for the families of Room 14 students.
