Reflection: ELL Students Pencil Measurements - Section 3: Student Practice

 

During all lessons on fractions, I try to keep in mind my ELL student. Learning how to read, write, and speak English and then learning the difference between four and fourth is quite challenging. In this conference, Measuring Pencil R, I realized that she could benefit from a labeled index card: Index Card Help. In addition, making sure she is always placed with a helpful and vocal student is greatly beneficial.
