Elkonin Boxes supporting ESOL learners


34% of our learners are on our school English as a Second Language register.  I am digging deeper into my Inquiry about the best ways to support ESOL learners.  Elkonin boxes has been a successful tool for some of learners. Now the challenge is to see how this knowledge in phonics can be transferred into reading and writing. 


  1. Hi Anita, I have found your post very interesting. My inquiry is about finding the best way to support dyslexic readers. I have just started using elkonin boxes in my classroom (first time I have used them.) It is great to hear what others are doing. I look with interest to see how your use of elkonin boxes helps your learners.

  2. Hi Anita, it was great to meet you at the Hui on Friday. I love your blog! I am going to try these with one of my students, i will let you know how i get on. I was wondering if i could come and visit your classroom this term?
