FBPS Bilingual/ESL Students
First Marking Period Successes
Mrs. Aque's Pre- K ESL students have been busy learning about classroom routines and meeting new friends. One of the many games they play in class is "I Have, Who Has." This game helps to develop new vocabulary for each new theme. Pictured is their family theme vocabulary. This game encourages our ELLs to use family theme vocabulary during make believe play which creates familiar experiences to expand their sentence structure and social skills with their peers.
Mrs. Hagan's class created heritage posters and celebrated their heritage. Students have been working on their sequencing skills by using flow maps to sequence the stages of the life cycle of a tree.
Mrs. Dumbra's ESL class celebrated the end of Hispanic Heritage Month, Students created self-portraits inspired by Frida Kalho. Students were encouraged to use symbols of their mixed heritage. The central figure is a Candytopia Philadelphia version of Kahlo's self portrait. Thanks to Mrs. Jaime Herr for sharing the photo.
The third grade bilingual and ESL class decorated feathers and contributed to the grade level "Flying High" bulletin board, complete with clouds! Mrs. Fiori is an artist in her own right! Mr. Mulhern posed with the third grade wings.
Sotillo visited Mrs. Fiori’s class to share their experiences as young students in the United States. They also shared insights in their fascinating careers.
