Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge It's The Real Thing - Section 1: Warm Up


Many of my ELL students have a huge vocabulary and knowledge in their own language.  Using the real thing I able to bridge the gap between their language and English.  It is so fun to watch my students faces and hear their conversations when they realize that their moms or grandmothers use cabbage.  "I know that, my mom cooks that."  I love connecting what they know and showing them in English.  I often feel that I am not only connecting their knowledge with new knowledge, but I am connecting with them on a personal level.
