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 primary students and classrooms using Wixie.
Students added a single image and recorded narration to share facts about content they learned and practice fluency.
Students write and illustrate on a topic they love and print as foldable booklets they can read over and over.
Students use the Wixie's Sentence Strip template to write and illustrate a sentence with new vocabulary.
Students practice writing and speaking new vocabulary words using familiar and repetitive books and songs.
Students use graphic organizers as story starters and to help structure their thinking.
My students used Wixie to summarize Jan Brett's "The Mitten".Then, they recorded their voices when retelling the story. It was a fun and effective activity. An activity for both K and 1st.

3rd ELLs record descriptions of their toy invention on #Wixie. They loved listening to each other's final projects and are building their speaking confidence for the fast approaching @WIDAConsortium ACCESS ?????????@EngLangAcqAACPS @BrockBAACPS pic.twitter.com/eXNprCCdMc— Ms. Ahmed (@MsAhmed_ESOL) December 19, 2018
ESOL students use #wixie to describe properties of matter. This is a great tool to increase their comfort level for @WIDAConsortium speaking testing ?????? #AACPSAwesome @EngLangAcqAACPS pic.twitter.com/Aj94rWll3r— Jodi Bennett (@MrsBennettESOL) November 1, 2019
