Just thought you would like the following link to TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).
This organization offers membership and a host of workshops and activities for educators who work with ELLs.
Hope you are all having a great start for the school year...I have been enjoying a new family from Sweden...twins!
They are in second grade and are so enthusiastic to learn English...of course we really have to work on phonics and reading skills. Though English and Swedish have many similarities, there are major differences in vowel sounds that are challenging. Any suggestions?
