Reflection: ELL Students Weaving Paper - Section 5: Evaluate


My classroom includes developmentally delayed students, ELL students, special education students and speech students. Since there is such  diverse needs in my classroom, I try to find ways to support their use of content vocabulary whenever possible. 

In this lesson, I have the kids write a reflection of their lesson experience in their science journal. To accurate explain their experience, I have them collectively create a word bank for them to refer to while writing.

Word banks always prove their worth in academic communication. When kids have a word bank to lean on while they explain their experiences, it makes the writing or speaking much richer and more accurate. In this lesson, even my kids who need the most support did an excellent job reflecting in their science journals.
