I posted this request for help on the Teaching and Learning CoP last week but for some odd reason never posted it here (the perils of trying to multi-task anyone?). Several great suggestions were made on the Teaching and Learning CoP since then. Here is the request:
I recently received a question from an ESL teacher who asked:
"I’d like to get some ideas of how I can help students with sight words. I can only make sight-word activities a minor part of a daily lesson since I have so much else to cover in my reading and writing class. So I’m looking for add-on daily activities and then a way to incorporate it into the readings we do in our textbook. The level is Upper Beginning ESL—they typically have a CASAS Reading score of around 200-216 with tests 083 and 084."
Any ideas that can help this instructor?
