Another really great lesson! I was currious, how does the teacher know that the students are saying the word i.e understanding the word correctly in their native language?

This lesson was absolutely incredble when it comes to the teacher and his students. I liked that he took the time setting up the lesson by setting up a warm-up question for his student to their answers too, and especially with how he guided his students when it came to what they were writng. I thought it was very clever that the teacher would have one of the students operate the computer and call out on other students to describe what was on the board in relation to the lesson they were learning. Most all, I found it really effective that the teacher set a timer for each activity taking place within the lesson in the class because to ensure progress is being made.

This is such an amazing and effective lesson! 

The teacher starts his lesson with a warm-up question and lets students set the time for their answers. While students are working on this, the teacher walks around to guide, support, and explain using write-on tables, effective tools for communication. It is also a good idea to let one student use the computer to call on other students to answer or read the vocabulary, language, content of the lesson. By doing this, students build their confidence as well as the responsibility in their learning.

One of the most effective strategies the teacher applies to teach reading is to ask the students to work in pairs. in which one student reads sentences like dictation and the other has to listen carefully to fill the gaps and asks for spelling if needed. Also, the teacher helps his students measure their fluency in reading by giving them one minute to read while the other in their pair follows the text. They then count the number of words they have read in a minute and record it in their folders with the date. By doing this, students can see how much progress they have made by looking at the dates and the numbers of words per minute they read. It is a great way for both the teacher and the student to measure students' improvement.

Moreover, I like the way the teacher manages the class. He always sets the time for each activity and asks questions to get students' engagement and also help enhance their critical thinking skills. The practice with pronunciation and phonics is great, too. In order to access students' understanding of the vocabulary while practicing with phonics, the teacher always asks them to say the words in their native language. This way is absolutely helpful.

In general, the lesson is well-prepared and effective in terms of helping students build literacy skills with the English language.

It is such an amazing and effective lesson! The teacher starts the lesson with a warm-up question and lets the students work on that within the time they set and walks around to help and encourage them to make sure they understand and are able to write the answer.

One of the most effective strategies the teacher applies to teach reading to ELL is that he lets students do the reading in pairs, in which one student reads either sentences or passages and the other listens to fill in the gaps in the sentences or follows the passages. While working in pairs, they can communicate by asking on spelling to make it clear. In this way, students can improve their communication and collaboration skills. In addition,
