Older Students Teaching the Younger Ones

To start the year, a couple of our classes had special projects to reinforce basic vocabulary and also give instructions and use English in an authentic way during special activities with their younger peers. 9th graders prepared paper dolls and “Guess Who” games to help teach first graders clothing vocabulary, and 12th grade students prepared children’s poetry to share with some 3rd and 4th grade classes. Enjoy the pictures and resource links below!

To learn more about poetry for Children, we used some wonderful resources from the website of acclaimed North American children’s poet Shel Silverstein, check it out!
