ESL First Grade Kindergarten Literacy Reading

Five for Friday {26.02.16}


I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching to share five highlights from my week! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. This week I blogged about 10 awesome website links to practice listening with your ELL students. I always find it difficult to find these resources and at times – my voice needs a break! ๐Ÿ™‚ Click on the image below to check them out!


I also plan on uploading this freebie soon! Students count the ten frames and then match the sun with the number in total. SO much fun especially for March (St.Patrick’s Day & spring for our U.S and Canadian friends). This will be an exclusive freebie to blog subscribers only, so if you haven’t subscribed yet, go ahead and do so!! You will get the count and clip cards free (shown below) before they disappear!


This freebie below will be posted soon and sent out to blog subscribers! ๐Ÿ˜‰


2. So this week, we read some nonfiction task cards about Easter. These are fun! Many forget the real reason behind Easter, these cards serve to explain the true meaning and the reason for the season! PS already so excited about Easter that a bought 6 packs of choco Easter eggs (they were on sale for $7) haha.



3. I printed these autumn language arts activity pages for use with my ESL learners. They LOVE these interactive pages. ๐Ÿ™‚


4. I downloaded the Kindle app recently and I really don’t know why I hadn’t downloaded it before now. I always thought that the Kindle comes with the Kindle reader only?? So silly haha! But I did! And now, I must say I’m obsessed. I have wish-listed quite a few books, including some Children’s books which I love! I mostly likely finding books about math concepts, I find these quite clever and it helps build on the child’s knowledge about literacy and numeracy.


Here are my fav’s for FEB:
This title would be a great read to get children involved with nature and to give an appreciation for the environment.

This book is a great read when introducing seasons or talking about what happens in spring!

5. It’s never easy starting a new year of teaching. Many teachers have come accross difficult classes and when I was teaching elementary school, I was one of them for three years! I wish there was someone that I could have turned to to get some advice on what to do with a chaotic class. I had always belived that the problem was me (I can be a pushover especially since I was young when I first started teaching). But this isn’t true, there are always ways to calm a chaotic class. I found the link below to be very informative! Pin link here.

Getting Control of a Difficult Class- a MUST READ for any teacher at the end of his or her rope! #classroom management:

Until next time! ๐Ÿ˜‰
