Sheltered Instruction--- Making a Difference for ELLs!
Language objectives are written in student friendly terms, observable, and aligned to content objectives. Language objectives should be discussed with students before the lesson, during the lesson and at the conclusion of the lesson. Quality language objectives scaffold student’s language use through vocabulary banks and sentence stems. We saw great examples of this as we walked--a few images are posted below. Thanks for all that you are doing to support our kids!!!!! Your work is much appreciated!!!!
TELPAS Time again!
Feria Educativa Para Familias--- Education Fair for Families
The Student and Family Support Services and Bilingual Department cohosted a Feria Educativa for parents at Oak Meadows on Jan. 30. We put together a variety of educational sessions for parents on topics that include protecting children from drugs, strengthening family communication and setting boundaries, and the safe use of technology. American Gateways presented about immigration, visas, and DACA. Many other non-profits attended this resource fair to share their programs. There were fun activities for the children and prizes for the families. MMS Mariachis closed this event out with a rousing performance! Special thanks to Joanne Grace and Marlen Gonzalez for collaborating to make this event awesome!
