Reflection: ELL Students What do I Wear? An introduction to Weather - Section 1: Engagement


The time of year that this lesson is taught is about mid-year. I have several language challenge students ranging from speech impaired to Mono-lingual Spanish speaking along with three developmentally delayed kids.

Showing the kids this simple video that focuses on content specific vocabulary in simple complete sentences supports English language acquisition for these students. The video chosen is also entertaining so the other kids enjoy it while the other kids use it to access vocabulary and language.

Carefully choosing videos to include in my lessons can be essential. Videos should be content specific and goal oriented. I only show my students videos to support specific learning targets and we take time to either discuss the subject matter or lead into the next section of the lesson.
