Reading in the writing classroom? Sure, why not. Experienced ESL writing teachers know there is a strong correlation between reading fluency and writing fluency. That’s why a book report (based on graded readers) is part of my class curriculum each semester.
Short stories for ESL students help English language learners find joy in reading and improve fluency. Reading after all shouldn’t be a chore.
Need a 20-minute ESL conversation activity that builds fluency, accuracy and vocabulary development? Try this pair work speaking game called Homographs. It’s an inquiry-based activity. Students explore word meanings through conversation.
Looking for an oral presentation activity, but hate student speeches? Try a poster presentation. It’s an awesome fluency activity that keeps students talking and engaged.
