Spill & Spell

The listening and speaking ESL 1 class is incorporating work stations twice a week to help the students explore language and practice literacy skills.  We started today with 4 stations and will be adding to them each week.  Our work stations included reading comprehension dialogues, partner dictation, a game of spill and spell as well as a quiz version of Trivial Pursuit Jr. 

The students adjusted  very well to the change in class and are receptive to more adjustments as time goes on. They will play a key part in helping to decide what stations will be added each week.  It was wonderful to see and hear the interaction between the students as they partnered through each activity.
