Use the Portuguese "word-of-the-day" tool to help ELL students transition into an english speaking classroom. In addition to their daily lessons, use this translated word of the day to provide them with extra vocabulary. To help students overcome social shyness, have them teacher their classmates the word of the day in Portuguese and English - allowing them to practice speaking in and English as well as maintain ownership of their primary language.

This creative and extensive site designed for the ESL classroom is filled with games, songs, talking pages, and clever teaching ideas. There is quite a bit to explore, but be sure to check out the teacher and parent pages, before turning your students loose on the "Kids" link. Also available in Japanese.

In the Classroom

Use the songs on this site to help students practice vocabulary in a fun way. Have student groups separate and practice different songs to perform in front of their peers, talent-show style. To make it more academic, have students speak after their performance about what the song is about and what they learned.
 This resource requires Adobe Flash.

This Webquest challenges students, working in small groups, to read, share, and compare/contrast folk tales from different parts of the world. A printable chart is provided to guide the analysis, and a graphic organizer can be downloaded to help students organize their thoughts for the final activity - the creation of an original folk tale. Links to online fairytales are provided.

tag(s): air (148), webquests (27)

In the Classroom

Use this web-quest as a hands-on practice activity for students following a lesson on folk tales. Have students complete the activity in cooperative learning groups on classroom computers. Be sure to help your weaker readers and ESL students by sharing the vocabulary words prior to reading, either on a handout or by projecting on an interactive whiteboard and highlighting them in the text as you come to them. English teachers will like the interactive part of this site, and students always enjoy a chance to work on computers!

To make it more interactive, have students create and illustrate their stories on an online book-maker, such as Bookemon, reviewed here. Teachers can post the stories on the class webpage, allowing parents to get to see the finished products!
