Literacy Strategies

Service-learning experience & Content Area

Strategy 1: Concept Map

In the center bubble I had the students use a word to describe their picture (ex: bird, spider web). Using the outside bubbles I had the students describe the picture using the creative devices we learned from the photography PowerPoint.

Strategy 2: Vocabulary

I had the students write down the words, and then next to it they wrote whether they knew it or not. We then defined the word next to it.

Strategies for my PE classroom

Reading strategy: Shared reading

Once a week I can bring a health-related article that the students are able to follow along to by looking at the words projected on the wall

Anticipatory set: K-W-L chart

Before the start of a unit (for example: basketball), I will have the students make a chart of what they know, what they want to know, and what they have learned after the unit. This will let me see where each individual student is at with their knowledge over a topic.

Conclusion for using literacy strategies for ELLs and PE

Before starting this class, I was not familiar with the literacy strategies used for ELL students. It's important to be aware of these tools, because in the long run it's benefitting the students. All children learn in different ways, and when using the strategies there are a variety of methods. There are visual tools, writing, reading, activities, etc.

In my classroom there will be students who are English Language Learners, and it's important for me to be able to use a variety of strategies when working with them. There will be different vocabulary words, writing, and reading to be learned. Having these strategies is beneficial for the children, and helps me with the process of teaching them.
