ELL Guided Reading in Kindergarten

Whether your classroom has only a few English Language Learners  (ELLs) or a majority, it’s critical to think about different strategies and skills that ELLs need to engage with books as they’re starting to read in kindergarten. It’s also essential that your classroom library has authentic and culturally relevant texts in both English and Spanish so that all readers can have texts that fit their needs and interests.

Every leveled book from our Bebop Books imprint comes in both English and Spanish; many were originally written in Spanish, so you can feel confident that they are authentic, accurate, and engaging for Spanish readers. Don’t miss this post on strategies for building skills with ELLs who are reading at levels A, B, and C.
