General Information

Hello, everyone!!!
In this page, you will found what's happening in each of my ESOL groups. Each reading group reads between 2-6 books weekly (depending on how many times a week I serve them). In all my groups, we are learning about the importance of organizing our thoughts before we write (graphic organizers, lists, quick phrases, etc). Once we have done that, we can start writing and think about words that will describe better our thoughts and are age/grade appropriate (Words that make your writing Pop! Bulletin Board).
