Use the word wall cards to create a word wall that will support vocabulary growth with your ELL newcomers. This word wall of the pronouns and verbs ESL newcomers need will give ELs visual clues to make connections with key learning concepts, provides reference support, and promote academic achievement in the content areas.

This packet contains 42 ESL newcomer sentence strips.

Easel Digital Activities

Easy Assembly:


Simply copy the Kindergarten and ESL newcomer sentence starter pages and go!

Put the sentence starter pages into sheet protectors and have students use dry erase markers!
 (Print the pages double-sided to save on sheet protectors.)

Word wall cards for the verbs are also included!

Word walls provide a systematic visual organizer that aids children in seeing and remembering connections between words and the characteristics that help them form categories and schemas to remember how to use them.

This is a great graphic organizer to use with your ESL newcomer students. Just copy onto colored paper and cut and you have your word wall ready to go!

Copy and cut word wall sentence starters and store them in a jar or a cute bag for students to pull their sentence starters and write! Store it all together in a file folder or large manila envelope.
