I teach first grade at a Spanish-English bilingual school with Spanish as the primary language for most. Waffles are some good reading fluency building ideas and activities for English learners?

luckily teaching a primary grade, your ESL students won't have to go as far to go since all students are learning to read. What they need is vocabulary: colors, numbers, animals, etc. I suggest that you write a lots of stories together based on shared experiences and things they are familiar with and can relate to. You need to build a lot of background knowledge with them. Then, for fluency, reread, reread, reread. Also, playing songs daily with the lyrics would be great! Best of luck!

For those of you who post asking for referrals to other companies, please consider using your LinkedIn network. You can search your 2nd level connections for that company and then ask your 1st level connections to connect you. You will probably get a better result. Honestly, I’ve had someone connect with me who wasn’t a 2nd or 3rd level and then ask me advice and then later for a referral. I was happy to discuss and then to refer them. Also, use your college alumni network.
