You guys were great with the last question (Here
), so I figured I'd try two more at once!
1. My same kid (5 y.o. Korean girl, speaks English very well) has been helped tremendously by the Florida Center for Reading Research textbooks online, and now I'm looking for a bit of help with writing. She finds it terribly boring, and I need to help her fix up her handwriting somehow regardless. If I start her up on writing a letter correctly (she has her own sort of messy script) it turns into a 10 minute battle that leaves us both exhausted for the rest of the hour, and I haven't really accomplished much of anything to show for it. How can I trick her into thinking that writing is fun?
2. I have 2 new korean students tomorrow for the first time, ages 4 and 6. Their mother says that their English is a little shaky, and I would love some advice on activities to do with ESL kids who aren't quite on firm ground when it comes to speaking English. (My first student is prettymuch as fluent as any 5 year old American, so I've gotten to focus exclusively on reading and writing)
