Notes

Abstract: Spanish-speaking students currently learning a second language in a fourth grade early-exit transitional bilingual education (TBE) program were challenged with attaining comprehension in English in order to be successful in the program. The students who participated in this study were at very low reading levels in English and Spanish and struggled with daily reading and writing exercises. Because vocabulary is a primary determinant of reading success, familiar and unfamiliar vocabulary were integrated into casual conversations and interactive vocabulary games, with four students for every hour and thirty minutes each week for five weeks. The games were homemade and the conversations were based on narrative read-alouds. The organizing question of this study was to determine whether deliberate and consistent vocabulary practice and exposure through interactive games and intentional dialogue increase the oral story-retelling skills in English in low reading-level bilingual students. The findings indicated that students increased in English-reading levels.
