Sentence Frames & Sentence Starters - Language frames work!


Hello everyone!  💜💛💚

  Sentence Frames & Sentence Starters 

Language frames work!

A sentence frame (also called a language frame) is a fantastic teaching tool that offers oral and written language support to English Language Learners (ELLs).  Sentence frames can be used for any subject, ELA, science, history, pullouts (Speech, ELD, and Reading and Math intervention).

Sentence frames or starters should be used as a scaffold, intended to support students in using language that they would not be able to produce on their own.  
 As the language becomes more familiar these scaffolds are gradually removed or replaced with new language the student does not use.  

Sentence frames shift the focus of informal language to higher academic language.

Below is an example of different language frames.  

Classroom teachers or ESL teachers can use.  They are listed by language function with examples at 3 different language levels.

💜💛💚 Happy Teaching,  💜💛💚
