EDU 321 Introduction to Serving English Language Learners Name: Tabitha Floyd Grade Level: 2 nd Grade Subject Area: Reading Topic: Spelling/Vocabulary Lesson plans for the week of March 7 th This weeks Introduction: The type of program that you will be working with this week is a regular 2 nd grade class there are twenty students and eight are Spanish students that are English language learners. There are three that are beginner level and five that are at developing level. Most of these students are between language stage two and three. The students are in groups of four in this classroom each group has a Stage three- language emergence student in them. Then there are three groups with stage two early production learners in them. The rest of each group is regular students. Each group works together to do Most of the class work in my class. They know they are there to help each other out and do a fairly good job at understanding each others needs. This will encourage communication and help them to learn the academic content more fully. Encase you are new to this type of class. Stage two- Early production learners are students that can usually speak in one- or two-word phrases. They can use short language chunks that have been memorized although these chunks may not always be used correctly. To help you out here are a few suggestions to help you work with these children. > Ask yes/no and either/or questions. > Accept one or two word responses. > Give students the opportunity to participate in some of the whole class activities. > Use pictures to support questions.

P. 41). Some of the instructional choices based on the theory are those that focus students on their own learning (Echevarria & Graves. 2007. P. 41). My ELL students know their own native language. My goal is teaching them how to use the English language to make it as natural as there native language is to them. The Humanistic Learning theory gives the students self confidence and allows the student to become more at ease with in their learning environment. That is why I use groups in my classroom. This makes for a more comfortable learning environment because they are learning off each other. They have to be part of a team and this team helps them build character and gives them self motivation. As you can see by looking around my classroom there are many learning stations. These
