Buford Academy ESOL students have been hard at work in first through third grades. We celebrated Cultural as well as Book Character Dress Up Day and started the month of November with Fall related studies for our reading and writing assignments. All ESOL classes continue to work on developing student vocabulary through learning activities each week.
Please continue to have your child participate in at home reading experiences. These can be provided through their school library books or visiting multiple reading based websites via the Wolf Wall. In addition, a multilingual resource, uniteforliteracy.com, provides access to many books with translations in many languages.
Please continue to keep up sight word practice and drill for first and second grade ESOL students. These are often memorized and then forgotten if not revisited. Your child's ESOL teacher has a supply of colored sight word cards if they have lost them. We will be happy to replace them with a new set! Also, you can access the SIGHT WORD icon on the Wolf Wall for automated card sets and Canvas ESOL pages for Picture Me sight word videos.
Thank you for everything that you do at home to support language learning! In a season of thankfulness, we wish to express that WE ARE SO VERY THANKFUL FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILD!
