ELL Family Resources

Cultural Tips for ELL Families

  1. Children can start school as early as three years old. If you do not make much money, your preschool aged child will likely qualify for a program called “Head Start.” This program helps your child have a better chance for success by providing him or her with early education, nutrition and health services, and encouraging you to be involved in their education. Head Start is free if your family qualifies.

  2. If you do not speak English, you have a right to ask for an interpreter to help you communicate with your child’s teacher.

  3. Our school has teachers and programs to help your children learn English.

  4. Our school has a Family Resource Center (FRC). FRC helps families connect with resources in the community. These resources may include food, clothing, and school supplies.

  5. Your child must log in to school every weekday, not miss days unless they are sick, and log in on time.

  6. It is considered rude to be late. Americans expect everyone to be on time.

  7. Teachers encourage children to speak confidently in class when it is their turn.

  8. It is a sign of respect to make eye contact when you are speaking with someone, even if they are your elder. However, staring is considered rude. Your child should look at the screen during lessons.

  9. Parents meet with teachers to discuss a child’s progress, ask questions, and learn what is expected of the child during a time called “Parent Teacher Conferences.” You are also encouraged to make other appointments with the teacher or principal if you have questions or concerns.

Recursos para familias ELL

1.Los niños pueden comenzar la escuela a los tres años. Si no gana mucho dinero, es probable que su hijo en edad preescolar califique para un programa llamado "Head Start". Este programa ayuda a su hijo a tener más posibilidades de éxito brindándole educación temprana, servicios de nutrición y salud, y participar en su educación. Head Start es gratis si su familia califica.

2.Si no habla inglés, tiene derecho a solicitar un intérprete que le ayude a comunicarse con el maestro de su hijo.Children can start school as early as three years old.

5.Su hijo debe iniciar sesión en la escuela todos los días de la semana y no perder días a menos que esté enfermo e iniciar sesión a tiempo.

6.Se considera irrespetuoso llegar tarde. Esperan que todos lleguen a tiempo.

7.Los maestros animan a los niños a hablar con seguridad en clase cuando es su tiempo de hablar.

8.Hacer contacto visual es una señal de respeto cuando están hablando con alguien, incluso si es un adulto mayor. Sin embargo, mirar fijamente se considera de mala educación. Su hijo debe mirar la pantalla durante las lecciones.

9.Los padres se reúnen con los maestros para discutir el progreso de un niño, hacer preguntas y aprender que se espera del niño durante “Conferencias de padres y maestros”. También se le anima a hacer otras citas con el maestro o el director si tiene preguntas o inquietudes.


STEM

Many of the things we use for STEM exploration and experiments are household items that you can recycle or reuse! Be creative with materials you already have or are found right outside! Think twice before throwing away something that may be useful for STEM learning at home.


Muchas de las cosas que usamos para la exploración y los experimentos de STEM son artículos que puede reciclar o reutilizar.

Another easy way to support COE is through the BoxTops for Education program. It’s even better than before, no more clipping and sending in boxtops, you simply use the BoxTops app and take a picture of your receipt!
