COVID-19 Closure

 

Hello Students & Families,

As we are out of school, know that we miss you, our classroom community, and our time together.  We care about you and want you to stay healthy and safe during this time.  We are here for during this time and if you need anything please email us at hortonja@pwcs.eduor armstrmp@pwcs.edu

In order to keep you clearly informed, we are providing a snapshot of our learning for the year, what we have already covered, what is coming next, and some activities that students can work on this week (3/23 – 3/27), and a statement about any assignments that were coming up when we left. 

ESOL Curriculum is guided by WIDA standards to facilitate student growth in Reading, Writing, Speaking & Listening and we target each one of these in every class through differentiated instructional activities targeted at student level.  Learning activities include group, partner and  independent practice.  We worked very hard and students learned a lot!!

WHAT WE LEARNED SO FAR!!
WIDA STUDENT TARGETS PER LEVEL
 

ACCESS testing began in February 2020 and all of our ESOL students completed their final ACCESS test for the year before our COVID-19 dismissal.  

When the time comes to begin focusing on new targets, we will review all targets covered before introducing new instruction.

FOR NOW: PWCS Guidance directs that there will not be any new assignments or graded work at this time.  Best way for students to practice/review from what we have learned so far:

READ
every day for 30 minutes if possible. This is the best thing you can do for your academic, social and mental health.

WRITE. You are experiencing a time that has never happened in our world before. Keep a journal of what is happening and your thoughts, observations, questions and concerns. You are a living primary source right now. If you’re interested, there is a journal set up for you in Seesaw to share your thoughts.
