Reflection: ELL Students Farm Fun-Joining Groups - Section 1: Opening


This lesson works well for EL Learners.  There is a multitude of opportunities to use and model academic language.  It is very important to model the use of this language for the students and to have them use the academic words themselves.  This step lengthens the lesson, but it is key to expanding vocabulary.  At first it might seem a bit tedious, but the more you engage the students in this "talk" the more comfortable it is for the teacher and the students just naturally follow along

I purposefully planned this lesson with a farm theme as our class will be taking a field trip to a farm in just a few week.  I want the students to become familiar with the different types of animals on the farm and their names.
