Support For English Language Learners

Supports for English language learners will be provided in coordination with remote learning opportunities. Please ensure that  students continue to engage in  oral language practice through the remote learning format and as well as engaging in practice at home (with parents, siblings and other family members).  Encourage your student to share discussions they had with you and/or classmates, video they watched or ideas that were shared.  This can spark further discussion  at home which is beneficial for their English language development.   Additionally,  here are suggestions for online English language practice.  These online resources for oral language practice can be accessed by students independently or alongside a parent or guardian.  

Your Chrome browser has the Google Translate extension on it. Use it to translate almost all webpages! Watch this video to learn how.
