    This year, I am switching to teaching elementary ESL (primarily K-1). I will be transitioning out of my current job next week and will start teaching either at the end of the week or at the start of the next week. I plan on spending at least the first two or three days getting students used to my routine, my system of classroom management, and I want them to help me create my class rules. I am using videos, visuals on posters, and a lot of partner work/collaborative group work to get students involved. However, I have been told I have a student or two who both have English levels that are much lower than that of the other students in class. How can I get them to participate in creating class rules on an equal basis as their peers?

    Your title doesn't match the content of your post. Are you asking about class-created rules or working with ELL students?

    Have you worked with ELL students before? A good starting place for information is Dave's ESL Cafe--you can google it.

    Class created rules. I have worked with ESL students before. I am just asking to get any specific ideas for teaching students with low language levels.
