Five Ways to Help Beginning English Language Learners in the Classroom

Hi there, teacher friends!

I just want to share with you the infographic I created that lists suggestions on how we, as teachers, can help our ESOL newcomers or beginning English Language Learners (ELL’s) in the U.S. classroom environment. It is undeniable that the number of ESOL population is growing each year across the country, and as an ESOL teacher who advocates for our immigrant students or ELL’s, I am excited to share with you what I find are time-tested ways by which we can help them survive the first few months of school:

As always, the most important thing is to teach from the heart. Β Our kids know if the people around them genuinely care. Β When they have spoken their first English words and say thank you to you in the future, it will be their best gifts ever. Β Not even a teacher’s award can beat that.

BTW, if you want to create an infographic, try this free infographic tool called Venngage.

Happy teaching!
