Children who speak English as a second language are supported by the special attention that is given to the needs of English language learners and bi-cultural families.
Some helpful considerations include the following:
Math Concepts are supported by: clear definitions of math terms, visual representations, and concrete examples.
Reading and writing skills will be introduced at a manageable pace, beginning with informal language and steadily progressing to learning more formal English.
Materials and topics for reading and writing will be relevant to the age and interests of the student.
Reading, spelling, and writing skills will include understanding English usage and vocabulary.
Students will enjoy interesting and fun activities that promote English language learning such as word games, songs, association of pictures clues and words, creative writing, and role-playing of dialogues, dramatic events, or conversational English.
Help with classroom work will support students with study skills, homework completion, and organization.
