Know Our Kids, Meet their Needs, Up the Mountain to T-2-4!

We had our PD on Word Walls last Wednesday.  I hope many of you have now had a chance to think about word walls and make plans to have this support for your students up and running this week.  You all built a great word wall stating the critical attributes that make a word wall successful and supportive for LEP students.

Critical Attributes of word wall

This word work and vocabulary building is essential and critical for the ELL student success.  As we visit in classrooms we should always see language being talked about, used, and visually represented!

Carol Salva will be here on Tuesday, in the conference room working with all core teachers on Writing with LEP students. On your planning time – come to the conference room with your LEP chart filled out – Your AP’s gave you the form at your KNIGHTS Grade level meeting – Carol is going to show you how that will and can be used in your planning for LEP students.

We are in mid October and before we know it the semester will be over.  Please use your time wisely and make every moment in the classroom with kids urgent!  Convey your urgency to your students!
