Unlock a World of EL Education Independent Reading Magic

I struggled so much to find aesthetically pleasing, high-quality, engaging EL-aligned activities on TPT, which is why I began creating my own resources. It still can be so challenging to find student-friendly, modern, and innovative resources for EL on TPT, or anywhere really.

Like most of my resources, this was born from me looking for something that didn’t exist yet and then deciding to make it myself.

Avoid “Packet Trap” and Say Hello to Interactive, Fun Learning

Independent reading time was one of the most difficult centers for me to plan for, mainly because I wanted something that I could use for every learner in my class and that was not cycle-dependent.

I also did not want to hand my students a packet of boring worksheets with the same low-level skills repeated over and over ad nauseam (possibly an unpopular opinion, but the word “packet” makes me die a little inside, a la Chrissy Teigan👇👇 ).

I wanted resources that would require open-ended answers and a deeper understanding of the content than just a simple cut, paste, color activity would. I’m not knocking skill worksheets as a whole–there is definitely a place for them in the classroom.

However, I think relying on “packets” exclusively for center rotations leads to boredom and eventual behavior issues because they are very often not developmentally appropriate. Packets frequently have students sitting for extended periods with little opportunity for collaboration, movement, cross-curricular skill building, etc. while completing page after page of low-level activities. (When I say packets, I’m referring to a bundle of worksheets students are given and must complete in a specific time frame. These activities are usually not very rigorous and are often busywork, with no real meaningful skill practice.)

I believe there are ways to make the existing EL Education curriculum developmentally appropriate, but packets are not for me personally.
