Math Minded…

Getting ready to collaborate with my good friend Shelly. We’re doing a presentation about math at MATSOL in May.

That’s a mouthful…

AND, we’re cutting it close.

There are lots of things people can do to make math more manageable for English Language Learners. Things like…

  • word walls (my favorite)
  • anchor charts crediting students’ thinking
  • connecting with students’ lives…
  • Sentence frames

Here is a lovely page I found on sentence frames by Angela Stockman:

This particular flier talks about sentence frames that go across content areas. And they may be a bit too grammatically complex for people who are worried about ELLs, but the idea remains the same.

Whatever you want to hear coming out of their mouths, you have to give them. They need to see it, practice it and have an opportunity to make it their own.
