    My school's ELL population is growing each year. I have struggled with teaching vocabulary in a way they can succeed. Does anyone have any ideas how to teach vocab. to ELL students?

    The majority of my students are ELL students (2nd grade). I use a book called The Book of Knowledge. You can read about it at http://www.makereadingfirst.com/index1.html. My kids LOVE doing the activities and I have seen tremendous growth in their use of vocabulary.
