Unlike most English-speaking students, ELLs have the task of learning a second language and learning content simultaneously. Contrary to popular assumption, language plays a critical role not just in reading and writing, but in learning mathematics as well. As a teacher, you're challenged with making math lessons comprehensible and with ensuring that students have the language to understand instruction and express their grasp of math concepts orally and in writing. Our panel of experts share ten ways to teach ELLs their ABCs and their 123s. 1 Create Vocabulary Banks.Charts that contain key math vocabulary words and phrases are helpful references for ELLs when discussing or writing about their math thinking, especially if the words are accompanied by illustrations.

Using iPads During Math Stations I am continually trying to think of ways to use the iPads in a producing or student creation way, rather than a "lets play a game" kind of way. I am also trying to be as paperless as possible this year, so using the iPads is a win, win situation. I share the 20 iPads with another teacher so in all honesty, I only have 10 during math and I usually use 4 with my guided math groups, which leaves me 6 for math stations.
