Great idea shared the other day at Mark Twain Elementary for how to differentiate for an ELL student who is a newcomer to the U.S.! The teacher has a clear plastic tub with differentiated materials for this student with a sign labeling it. During independent time, she assigns a different student to work with this child daily. The kids check off a list showing the day they worked with him, so they all get to have a turn. It is one of their favorite times of day, and they love working with their new friend!
