ELL Strategies for Elementary Learners

Use these sample projects and classroom ideas to support your ELLs as they acquire new language.

Creative use of technology can engage ELLs, and help you integrate your iPads, PCs, or Chromebooks into the curriculum.

These samples were created by elementary students and classrooms using Wixie.

"Wixie offered a solid platform for my ELLs to exhibit their knowledge of a subject through KWL charts, vocabulary cards, and book creations. It was great to see how engaged they were and creative they could be while working within the parameters of my assignment."
