Twitter @BilESLWL4FBPS


Mrs. Aque's Pre- K ESL students have been busy learning about classroom routines and meeting new friends. One of the many games they play in class is "I Have, Who Has." This game helps to develop new vocabulary for each new theme. Pictured is their family theme vocabulary. This game encourages our ELLs to use family theme vocabulary during make believe play which creates familiar experiences to expand their sentence structure and social skills with their peers.
