Reflection: ELL Students How Are Mountains Made? - Section 3: Explore


When I was teaching the next lesson, where the students have to write about how mountains were formed, I realized how important the Milky Way Observations recording sheet was. Children who had language difficulties had trouble remembering what they had observed and the describing words we used.  But when they looked at the recording sheet, they were able to access the language and ideas.  It turned out to be a good scaffold for those children who needed the extra support.
