Finding a great new resource for ELLs is always exciting. Brain Pop is a website with online games for kids. It has been around for a long time but it has changed greatly. The webpage also has great tools for teachers as well. It allows teachers to create quizzes and puzzles that are printable.
My favorite new section is one for English learners. I have been asked many times by principals and teacher what they can do with newcomer English learners the first few weeks of school. This is a great tool for them to begin getting some English, feel engaged, and practice new necessary words. Yon can select by Enlgish language proficiency level 1, 2 or 3. It includes a list of words at that level and games to practice.
If you have other websites please post them here.
