Help your ELLs develop oral language skills and learn theme-based vocabulary in context of their own community. Students learn and practice more than 80 vocabulary words and phrases presented in interactive activities that reflect familiar community scenes—a town and a corner store.
The interactive, teacher-led, and self-directed activities support all four language domains: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Digital and audio features, including record-and-replay functions, further maximize language learning!
  • This resource is ideal for English language teachers who have newcomers and students at the beginning or early-intermediate language levels.
  • Interactive components can be presented on a classroom projection system or computer for whole-class, small-group, or independent instruction.
  • App activities can be assigned to individual students. (Not yet available for the iPad.)
 How It Works: Using the interactive app, accompanying print materials, and the pacing guide, a teacher leads students through sessions following this teaching path:
  • 30- to 60-minute sessions of direct instruction and independent practice to introduce and build vocabulary for each community scene
  • additional activities to apply the vocabulary, including three app games, an interactive story that can be translated into other languages, chants and songs with audio support, picture card games, and written activities
  • assessment activities that evaluate listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills
 In My Community, students learn and practice more than 80 vocabulary words and phrases, including:
  • bus stop, gas station, post office
  • firefighter, mechanic, police officer
  • crossing the street, walking the dog
