Reflection: ELL Students Haikus- The Nature Poem - Section 1: Mini-Lesson


As I looked at student work, I noticed some of my ELL students struggled with determining syllables in a word.  I met with them and retaught how to determine number of syllables by counting the puffs of air coming from their mouths and to notice when their mouth changed shapes.  A great strategy I learned to teach kids about this is to have students look at their mouth as they say a single syllable word in a small had mirror.  then contrast that with saying a multi-syllable word and watch what happens to the shape of their mouth and the puffs of air that come out.
