ESOL students celebrated Multicultural day during the month of October. We had the honor of celebrating the many different cultures in our ESOL classes! Students and parents worked hard at home to create a “Where I’m From” poster! The students enjoyed seeing their peers represent their cultures and learning more about their family’s heritage! Thank you parents for helping your child with this project! We are so proud of our Kindergarten students and the incredible culture they bring to our classrooms each day!

In our Little Sponges online program, we explored the Farm Adventure. We learned about where milk, eggs, honey and bread come from. The students are communicating and reading common food vocabulary words and farm vocabulary words. They also are learning about colors to describe different farm animals while answering basic questions. . We hope you enjoyed the week of Thanksgiving with your family and please know how thankful we are to teach your precious children each day!

All of the ESOL teachers at Buford Elementary can be reached by email. Mrs. Delgado is our Spanish translator for our team and you can email her directly.

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,, 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!

BA has a first grade ESOL student that has finished the entire Reading Eggs program! His name is Isaac Hah and we are so proud of him. This is quite an accomplishment for a first grader! Way to go Isaac!

We read the book called The Arabic Quilt on Epic! It was about a girl named Kanzi that came from Egypt to live in America. Students read about her story and how she learned the important lesson that being different and knowing different languages makes the world a better place! After reading and analyzing the book, students made their own Arabic Quilt with their own names in Arabic. What's your name in Arabic??

Students read all about electric circuits! They learned about nonfiction text features, components of an electric circuit, and the different types of circuits. Students built their background knowledge and vocabulary as they experimented with simple electric circuits.

Readers Theater: Students worked with a partner to read and act out a script - The Mummy. One partner played the role of the parent, while the other partner played the role of the child who wanted to dress up like a mummy for Halloween.

The "Linguistically Gifted" students at Buford Middle School work efficiently every single day perfecting their English reading, writing, and grammar skills. In addition to the regular school week, the English learners are invited to Saturday School. They are enjoying three extra hours of academic instruction. They rotate between math, reading, and writing classes. BMS also offers Overtime for the students who need extra help in reading and math. We certainly are BLESSED IN BUFORD!
