choral_reading.jpgChoral readings are a great way for ELL students to learn vocabulary and language in a non-threatening way. I chose the book Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? The book is written by Bill Martin, Jr and illustrated by Eric Carle.

This choral reading would be used with ELL Kindergarten students who are at the beginning level of language learning. I chose this book because of the repetition of the text and the use of color words.
