I usually get plans that have me play games with the kids and/or watch movies, stuff like that. I can read notes and sing, though, so that helps. :)

That is the exact reason why I love ESL and most learning support positions since they usually have the same in-the-classroom set-up. However, in our district, I sometimes get kids who know NO...
