Resources for English Learners
While your children are not at school it is important that they continue to practice their English. Here are some ideas and resources that can help -- and keep it fun!
It is also important to work on literacy skills in your home language. It’s always a great idea to read to your children or have them read to you!
Write the alphabet down the left side of a piece of paper. See if your child can think of a word for each letter of the alphabet.
Play guessing games such as “I Spy,” “I’m Thinking of Something that Starts with the Letter ___,” and “Twenty Questions.”
Have your child read to you (or vice versa) before they go to bed at night. If they find a book they like, have them read the same one again for extra fluency practice.
Create stories one line at a time, alternating between players.
Draw cartoons and practice English by using speech bubbles.
Play Categories: each player writes five categories across the top of a piece of paper and five letters of the alphabet down the side. Set a timer for five minutes and try to think of words in each category that begin with the letters you chose.
