It sounds like you are doing well. Basically, you are teaching a new subject, and it takes a while to become comfortable doing that. Are there any experienced teachers in your school district? If so, you might want to watch them teach or have them come and watch you and give you advice. Also, your school board should give you some support.
Are they a part of the regular classes? If so, what problems do they have? Were they good students back in Puerto Rico? Start with their immedicate problems, and go from there.
Can they read in English? If so, "English through Literature" is a good textbook. Also, there are science books available for second language learners.
