Newcomer ESL Curriculum

This past week, we have had two newcomers join second grade. One student is from Mexico and the other is from El Salvador. Both students lack English language backgrounds and are struggling academically.  In the past, we have used a newcomer binder as our curriculum.  We are finding that this material is out of date and may not be appropriate for second grade students.  I have been researching newcomer programs and I am struggling to find a program that will meet the needs of our students.  What programs/curriculum do you use for your newcomer students?
