A solid command of the English language will help you in many aspects of your life, including reading, writing, and understanding. Was it ever brought to your attention that a child’s vocabulary is a vital aspect in his or her ability to read?

Teachers and parents can download high-quality free A to Z printable English worksheets quickly and easily. It is one of the most straightforward and interactive approaches for students to expand their vocabularies.One of the first things kids notice when they move from kindergarten to first grade is the increased workload. Yes, first-graders can still have fun, but not at the same rate as they did in kindergarten. This is because first grade is when students are introduced to large numbers of central concepts in a wide range of subjects, all within the confines of a structured classroom environment.
This reality can cause frustration and anguish, which can stymie educational development. Accessing our first grade worksheets is one way to keep first-graders engaged and focused.

The best thing about first grade worksheets is that they cover the entire curriculum.

Teaching Strategies for Preschool & Pre-k English Language Learners
Do you need help teaching English Language Learners in your classroom here in the U.S., or abroad? Having a multicultural classroom is a must in today’s day and age. Here you’ll find my best advice for teaching dual language learners in preschool, pre-k, or kindergarten classrooms.
Tips for Working with English Language Learners
As early childhood teachers, almost everything we do in the classroom daily is conducive to learning the English language. Below you will find research-based information and my personal tips that will put your fears to rest and make your ESL students feel safe and comfortable in your classroom.
Common School Abbreviations for Teaching English to Dual or Multilingual Learners
Schools like to abbreviate often used terms, here are some of the most common ones used in the U.S.
- Dual Language Learners (DLL)
- English Language Learners (ELL)
- Multilingual Early Learners (MEL)
- English as a Second Language (ESL)
There are new abbreviations and terms being created by schools all the time, if you come across one that isn’t listed here leave me a comment below so I can update this list.
Your Role as a Preschool Teacher to Help Non-native English Speakers Feel Comfortable
Experienced esl teachers.
I have two great passions in life, one is teaching young children in the early childhood classroom and the other is teaching English Language Learners. As an experienced ESL teacher of 20+ years, I’ve been fortunate to be able to work in both fields here in the U.S. and abroad.
New ESL Teachers
Often, I receive requests for help from teachers who are new to working with Second Language Learners. One of the most common misconceptions about any preschool program serving multilingual students is that you have to stop and change the way you do everything if you have non-native English speakers in your classroom – but nothing could be further from the truth.
What’s the difference between a Bilingual and an ESL teacher/classroom?
A bilingual teacher is one who speaks the native language of the students and teaches in that native language and in English too. How much English is spoken in a bilingual classroom depends on the program.
An ESL teacher is one who speaks English and teaches the students in English only.
In Texas, a bilingual classroom usually refers to Spanish speaking students and teachers, in other areas it is common to have bilingual classes for Vietnamese, Chinese, Korean, and many, many other languages. Research shows that it is better to learn in ones native language if possible.
Encouraging Native Language & Culture Within Your Preschool Classroom
Communicating with multilingual early learners.
How can I communicate with a child who doesn’t speak English?
Use hand gestures and facial expressions to communicate, you will be surprised at how much you can convey with these alone.
Just like any other young child, ESL students will also pick up on your body language, so be relaxed and confident, smile often, and give the thumbs-up sign when things are going well.
Speak clearly, enunciate your words, and avoid use of regional slang or colloquialisms.
What if My ELL Students Don’t Talk?
Help! My ESL students never talk, I don’t think they’re learning, what should I do?
Don’t worry, most ESL students will go through a “silent period” that can last anywhere from six weeks to three months or more. During this time your students are absorbing their new language and may be afraid of speaking and making a mistake. It’s very important that you, your colleagues, or the child’s classmates do not force young English Language Learners to speak during this time or punish them for not speaking, however lots of praise and encouragement often works wonders.
You can entice your ESL students into speaking through the use of props and music. What four year old doesn’t love speaking into a microphone and hearing his own voice or singing along to a song with big alligator puppet? By making English less scary and more fun, your ESL students will be talking a blue streak by the end of the year.
Preserving the Native Language and Encouraging Communication Between Other Students
I have several ESL students who all speak the same home language and they are always talking to each other in their native language, is this bad? Should I put a stop to it? How can they learn if they don’t speak English in my class?
Discouraging the use of the native language in the classroom or at home is counterproductive. Often, ESL students will discuss concepts they are learning in your classroom in their native language, thus improving comprehension.
We don’t want English to replace their native language, we want them to learn English as a Second Language. Banning their native language in the classroom will force ESL students to lose their identity and feel “bad” for speaking their native language- thus feeling bad about themselves and their culture.
Do I Need to Understand the Child’s Native Language?
Do I have to speak the student’s native language to be an ESL teacher?
No, this is a common misconception. An ESL teacher is an English teacher, ESL teachers do not need to speak the student’s native language to teach English. As an ESL teacher, I often have students who speak several different languages in my classroom at the same time and there is no way I could master all those languages in order to teach them English.
Why Don’t My Students Look Me In the Eye When I Speak to Them?
Why won’t my ELLs look me in the eye when I’m speaking to them?
In some cultures it is considered rude for a child to look an adult in the eyes. While it may seem strange to you, it is simply a cultural difference you will need to accept. Forcing a child to look you in the eye if they come from a culture where it’s not the norm will only confuse the child and frustrate you.
Which Language Should We Encourage Families to Speak at Home?
Sometimes parents mistakenly think they are helping their children by banning their native language in the home, forcing them to speak English only. However, this only results in children who have no native language or cultural identity which can lead to problems later in life.
Social Learning & Peer Interaction for Preschool & Kindergarten English Language Learners
My ESL students are extremely shy and never interact with any of their peers, what can I do?
The buddy system is a great way to help your ESL students adjust to their new classroom and school. Buddy your new student up with an English speaking classmate. The native English speaker acts as a shadow and a helper so you don’t have to worry about the new student getting lost on the way to the bathroom or wandering away during recess etc. Of course, you have to choose your native English speaking “buddy” carefully.
Communicating With Parents Who Don’t Speak English
How can I communicate with the parents of my ESL students? They don’t speak English!
I feel that it’s as important to communicate with the parents of my ESL students as it is to communicate with the students themselves. In your weekly newsletter use lots of clipart for visuals and break the info up into small bites. Provide lots of real visuals at parent orientation and conferences. To explain that a backpack is required, I hold up an actual backpack, and for our “no flip-flop” policy I hold up a pair of real flip-flops and shake my head in the no motion and show a thumbs down sign.
Preschool Activities for Preschool and Pre-k Dual Language Learners
Using visuals cues with english language learners.
My students just don’t understand me, it’s so frustrating for us both! Is there anything I can do to help my dual language learners understand what I’m trying to say?
Just like all young children, your dual language learners will benefit from the use of visuals and props to better understand words. For example, try using classroom rules with pictures and a visual daily schedule to provide visual cues.
When you sing songs try to use a prop or puppet. For example, when singing Five Green and Speckled Frogs , try to have five frog props (printed and glued to craft sticks, stuffed animals, or puppets) to help your young English Language Learners better understand the meaning of the words.
Oral Language Activities for ELLs
Word Wacker For each theme I created a thematic word wall using Microsoft clip art. Just insert the clip art into a word document and size it to fit your needs, next print it out, cut, and glue the pictures to a poster board. I suggest laminating the poster board for durability. Cut out the middle of the fly swatter with scissors or an Exacto knife, the hole will act as a “frame” for the pictures on the word wall. Next, place the thematic word wall in your large group area and review the words daily with your class. We do our daily vocabulary review by playing a game I call “Word Whacker”. I have my “Leader of the Day” come to the front and choose either the fly swatter or the plastic microphone. The leader gives the other to a friend, whoever has the microphone is the “caller” and whoever has the fly swatter is the “whacker”. The caller calls out a word from the word wall and the whacker has to hit the correct picture with the fly swatter. I leave this game out during centers and they line up to play it. The picture above shows two of my students playing Word Whacker during center time.
Pass the Microphone Game
This game is super simple and a great oral language developer. I select a question to ask that is related to what we are learning about, for example I might ask “Do you like cookies?” after we read the story “If You Give a Mouse a Cookie”. I ask the question to my Leader of the Day into the plastic microphone, and the leader must answer “Yes, I like cookies” or “No, I don’t like cookies”; then he asks the question to the person sitting next to him. Every student gets a turn to ask and answer the question and the person who is very last gets to ask the teacher- they think this is great fun and always laugh no matter what my response. This game gives students practice in asking and answering questions, using complete sentences, and sentence structure. The later in the year it is the more complex the questions become. For example, the last week of school I ask the children “What will you do this summer?” which requires more knowledge and vocabulary to answer. We also play this game after every major vacation, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and spring break, it gives them a chance to get back into the routine of speaking English and to share, which all young children love to do.
Celebrating American Holidays With English Language Learners
Second language learners and valentine’s day.
Valentine’s Day is a perfect example of the need for extra communication. This holiday causes great stress and grief in my classroom as it’s a holiday that most other countries don’t celebrate. The concept of little boxes of school Valentine cards is completely foreign to them. I stand outside the classroom door beginning a week or two before Valentine’s Day and hold up sample boxes of school Valentine cards. I also copy the front and back of several boxes as examples and send a short note home telling parents where to buy the cards and how to address them. I strongly suggest you buy several boxes of school Valentine cards at the after Valentine’s Day sales each year because there are always a few families who still don’t get it. Also, be prepared for students who bring in packages of cards for baby showers or birthday invitations because their parents just don’t understand the concept no matter how hard you tried. Always be accepting of these situations and never scold the child or demand the parent send in the correct cards. I save these cards and put them in my art center the following year rather than send them home and embarrass the family.

A WONDERFUL RESOURCE TO HAVE, THANK YOU
You have some great information for ESL teachers working with younger students. I appreciate you sharing your ideas.
I love the color box idea! Simple but meaningful.
Thank you! I love your ideas, especially as they are the first I’ve found that seem appropriate for very young children and very beginning learners. And they are adaptable and fun enough to grow with them.
I learned a lot from this post- thanks for sharing!
Great session. Thank you

- Mark Bariche
"I found the perfect tutor for me, I became able to speak in another language and enjoyed meeting new people from other cultures. I've improved my language skills, without traveling abroad. Thanks TUTOROO!"
"Speaking in another language is no longer difficult with the help of a teacher. Getting corrections for your mistakes helps you continue to improve in each lesson."
Why Learning English With A Private English Tutor?
TUTOROO works with a community of over 4,500 private English teachers in more than 150 cities. Our English tutors help their students improve their English skills by providing them with personalised online and in-person lessons. The internet is full of helpful resources for non-native English speakers to learn English, with materials for all levels in order to improve one's vocabulary or English grammar. So why would you need to hire a private English teacher to learnEnglish?
First, private English tutors are able to meet specific English learning needs that static online resources may not always provide. With one-on-one English lessons , you can easily progress towards English language fluency. Students can choose to focus their lessons on grammar exercises, vocabulary, pronunciation, writing, reading comprehension, speaking practice, and more.
Below are some of the benefits of learning English with an English teacher with TUTOROO:
1. Best English Tutors for Kids, Teens and Adults
One-on-one English tuition with a private English teacher allows you to have the undivided attention you deserve. Private English classes are customised to your learning goals and your rhythm. Perhaps you are interested specifically in business English, conversational English, or private lessons for your kids - an English tutor can customise your English lessons to meet your needs and help you improve your skills thanks to real-world lessons from a native speaker.
When you learn English with a TUTOROO tutor, you get direct answers to all of your questions, this helps you improve your language skills faster in areas you struggle with, from pronunciation and vocabulary to other grammar issues. A private English teacher can immediately identify your mistakes and correct your inaccuracies. You get to ask direct questions when things aren't clear and obtain immediate answers from them.
For example, for non-native English speakers, the English language can sometimes be contradictory. For example, the 'ch' in 'chair' is pronounced differently from the 'ch' in 'chiffon'. The 'th' in 'thumb' is pronounced differently from the 'th' in 'that'. A private English teacher can help you avoid these common pitfalls to achieve English language success and gain strong English communication skills.
In a nutshell, learning English with a TUTOROO tutor is much more fun and interesting than just watching online videos or learning online through tutorials. You may now improve your English skills with our online and in-person private tutors. We actually help students from around the world improve their English skills.

In a group class, the tutor will move on if the majority of the class understands. With one-on-one private English courses , your English teacher works at the pace you are comfortable with, and can also adapt their teaching methods for you.
3. Working Around Your Schedule
Unusual scheduling needs? Preparing for an English proficiency test? Need intensive English classes ? No problem, you can work with your TUTOROO English teacher to find a timing and frequency that suits you for your English tuition.

Why Learning English?
English is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, it is also used as a second language by millions of people around the globe. English has been used as an international language since the 17th century.
The English Language is recognised as the official language in about 67 different countries. Additionally, more than 27 non-sovereign entities regularly use English as an administrative or conversational language. It is the official language of many world institutions like NATO, the European Union and the United Nations. Close to a third of the world's population (some 2 billion people) now use English, giving it the position of a global lingua franca.
With TUTOROO you may now learn English with a private English teacher in the following locations:
Is English a Difficult Language to Learn?
The English Language is regarded as one of the most difficult languages to learn for non-native English speakers. Its grammatical rules are often broken, spelling and pronunciation irregularities can even confuse native speakers. With the help of a private English teacher, you can overcome the difficulties of the English language and achieve full English language fluency. Improve your English skills now with an English tutor .
What are the Most Popular English Tests?
As a non-native English speaker, many higher education schools or universities where English is the standard language of teaching will require you to take an English proficiency test. This test is proof of your English language ability and ensures you have the necessary oral, aural and writing skills to complete your course. Don't let a language barrier stop you from achieving your dreams. Hire a private English language teacher to help you prepare for your English proficiency test.
The two most common tests are the TOEFL or IELTS :
TOEFL (The Test of English as a Foreign Language) is the most common English proficiency test. There are two formats for writing TOEFL and you can choose your preferred format: an internet-based test or a paper-delivered test. The sections in the test include listening comprehension, written expression, reading comprehension and speaking. The test takes about 3 hours to complete and the result is valid for two years. Most universities require that you score between 90 to 100 (B2). However, some universities may require that you attain a minimum score in each section while meeting the B2 proficiency requirement.
IELTS (The International English Language Testing System) is another widely recognised English proficiency test. The test has two versions which are the academic version and the general training version. Most employers and universities worldwide accept the academic version, while the general training version is accepted by government institutions and used for immigration.
The first 3 sections of the IELTS - listening, reading and writing - lasts 2 hours 40 mins. The last component is a speaking test done in the presence of an examiner. IELTS scores range between 1 and 9 with universities requiring a minimum of 6 or 7. The minimum score is equivalent to C1 and B2 proficiency levels. You can get your IELTS results 13 days after the test and the result is valid for two years.
Although not as common as IELTS or TOEFL, CAE (Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English) and CPE (Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English) are often an admission requirement for UK universities. Usually, only people at an advanced English level can take CAE and CPE. They are in-depth, high-level qualifications that demonstrate an English proficiency level of C1 - 7 to 8 in IELTS or 110 to 120 in TOEFL. You can take CAE and CPE either on your computer or in person. Like the other tests, the CAE and CPE tests reading, writing, listening and speaking. The speaking section of the test will be done with another candidate to test fluency in face-to-face situations. Unlike TOEFL and IELTS, CAE and CPE certificates don't expire. The highest grade is an A and the lowest score in CAE and CPE is C, with most universities requiring a minimum of B for admission.
Can My English Tutor Prepare Me For English Proficiency Tests?
TUTOROO works with many English tutors who are available and specialised in training for some of these tests. By browsing our English private tutor profiles , you will be able to find tutors who specialise in test preparation for English proficiency tests. You are also able to contact the tutor directly with any queries and choose the private English tutor that best fits your needs.
TUTOROO only hires tutors that get the work done. By this, we mean that learners and students pass their English proficiency test after being coached by a TUTOROO private tutor.
How Soon Can I Become Fluent In English?
This must be our most popular question! With the help of a teacher and with private English lessons , learning English is much easier, quicker and more enjoyable. Of course, being motivated and focused comes in handy when learning a new language. With both online or face-to-face lessons and if you have the motivation to study a couple of hours every day, a private English teacher will help you become fluent in English in as little as 6 months!
Be patient, fluency in English is not something anyone acquires overnight. The process takes time and requires enthusiasm, that's why hiring a private tutor that can customise your English lessons to your interests and needs is important. Furthermore, face-to-face and online English lessons give you an opportunity to converse and practise your newly acquired English language skills.
Being motivated and focused comes in handy when you're learning a new language. If you have enough time to study English with a private tutor, you can become fluent in just around six months as long as you study it a couple hours a day.
In addition to studying with a TUTOROO tutor, you may want to try to get fully immersed as well once you start speaking English fluently. Being around native English speakers allows you to practise language skills you've learnt. You can also read English books, watch English speaking movies and listen to the news in English.
How Many People in the World Speak English?
Interestingly, the English language isn't the most spoken one in the world, although there are over 400 million native English speakers around the planet. English is the third most spoken language - right behind Spanish and Mandarin Chinese.
Speaking English has many advantages:
- English is a recognised language worldwide;
- English is used in many industries and speaking English fluently does increase your chances in getting a job in sectors such as aviation, science, tech, tourism and diplomacy;
