This informative publication shows how to use the SIOP® Model with pre-K and kindergarten English learners so they can fully participate in all aspects of early schooling. The book focuses on preschool-aged children and kindergarteners and shows how to create an effective and developmentally appropriate instructional setting for these young English language learners. The volume includes an overview of the SIOP Model and devotes four chapters to the eight components of the model.

Understand the young English learner and language development, learn all eight components of the SIOP Model (lesson preparation, building background, comprehensible input and strategies, interaction and lesson delivery, practice & application and review & assessment), and see how other programs have used the SIOP Model to create an optimal learning environment for their young students. A sample lesson plan and highlights from three sample programs help educators see how to implement the framework in different settings and circumstances.
