ESOL Tip of the Week

Vocabulary building is an important element to English Language Learners' language development. Quizlet is a great site to support your ELLs' vocabulary development. Check out the site by clicking here. Also, watch the video below to learn more about how the site works!


ESOL Reminder of the Week


Beginning January 12th through February 12th, all English Language Learners will participate in ACCESS for English Language Learners, our state's English language proficiency test. The test consists of four subtests (speaking, listening, reading, and writing). Students will be scheduled to take each subtest on different days throughout the testing window. All 1st - 5th grade teachers have received a copy of their students' testing schedules in their mailboxes. During this testing window, ESOL teachers will be testing students daily, therefore there will not be ESOL instruction during this time. It is critical that we work as a team to complete testing in a timely manner. When an ESOL teacher comes to your room to pick up a student for testing, please allow the student to go with him or her. The sooner we complete testing, the sooner ESOL teachers can return to the classroom!


The following rooms will be used for testing throughout the testing window:

  • A105
  • A204
  • B207
  • B106
  • 207 (Science Lab)
  • C102
During the testing window, please be careful not to enter any of these rooms if a testing group is in session, as it is a breach of testing security.


If you have any questions regarding ACCESS testing, send your questions to Meghan Gregoire (meghan.gregoire@pgcps.org).
