The Best Resources For Helping Beginner ELLs Learn About The Weather

 

As I shared a few months ago (see Beginning A New “Best” Series Of Interest To ELL Teachers), I’m beginning to create an updated series of “Best” lists for Beginning English Language Learners. They will ultimately replace the resources I have on my outdated website.

I’ve done quite a few so far, and you can find them all at All My Thematic “Best” Lists For Beginning ELLs – In One Place!

I’ve got several more to go, however, and here’s the latest one – on vocabulary about the weather:

Weather Words

Weather Watcher

Video Lesson For Weather

Weather Vocabulary Interactive Game

Weather Vocabulary ESL Memory Game for Beginners

NY Times Learning Network Announces Winners Of Annual 15-Second Vocabulary Video Contest

The New York Times Learning Network has announced this year’s winners of their annual 15-Second Vocabulary Video Contest. You can see them all here.

Here’s one example:

I’ve often used Instagram videos with English Language Learner students to create similar videos. In fact, The Learning Network used videos from my class as examples to introduce the first year of its contest.

Great Student Video Vocabulary Contest At NY Times Learning Network

7851395464

Each year, The New York Times Learning Network invites students to create a fifteen second video using one of the 1,600 words the Network has featured in their posts.

They’ve just announced the opening of their 2017 contest. The deadline is February 28th.

I think it’s an excellent learning activity, particularly for English Language Learners. In fact, the Network used a video created by one of my students as a model when they began the first year of the contest.

You can see many examples at The Best Resources For Learning To Use The Video Apps “Vine” & Instagram.

Create Free Virtual Classrooms & Monitor Student Progress At Vocabulary.com

vocabularydotcom

Vocabulary.com lets teachers create free virtual classrooms and assign vocabulary lists to learn.

They’re not the most exciting online activities for students to do, but it could used periodically in class, and I suspect some students might like to do it at home.

I’m adding this info to The Best Sites Where Students Can Work Independently & Let Teachers Check On Progress.

I’d like to thank Catlin Tucker for the tip – her blog is always a source of great ideas!

“Word Bucket” Lets Students Learn Vocabulary In A New Language & Teachers Can Set Up Virtual Classrooms

wordbucket

Word Bucket has been a mobile language-learning app and has just now unveiled a website version.

It has several different languages available, and the exercises and games appear pretty similar to ones found in other sites.

The nice feature it has that many others do not is the ability for teachers to create virtual classrooms and monitor student progress. That tool, as well as the entire site, seems to be free.

I’m adding this info to The Best Sites That Students Can Use Independently And Let Teachers Check On Progress, which has grown to an insane length.
