Students real life objects. Depending on the type of materials, the teacher should make sure they are
appropriate for the student to use.
Having clear pictures with labels and visuals displayed of the important vocabulary words
helps ELL students make connections with the words they are hearing. The ELL aid could
assist as well, but the teacher could clearly make the sounds the letters make within the
words that are the major focus.
The teacher could have students label more than one picture on their construction paper if

they are already done with their first one ahead of time. They could even label their plant
drawing from the start of class and explain why it has those parts.
For students who are not making proper connections, the teacher can provide them with
several other examples of plants with labels and show them the similarities.

Potential Challenges/Plan B
If the video or smart board is not working, the teacher could read the book “tops and bottoms” by Janet Stevens.
This could also help fill out the anchor chart.
