I am the second grade teacher in the school that serves a very high number of ELL students. This year, I have over 30 amazing ELL (English language learning) students in my classroom, and one fourth are newcomers. I teach them all subjects – Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Reading and Writing.
There are over five different languages spoken in my classroom, and it represents a wide variety of individuals with different social and economic backgrounds.
All of my students receive free breakfast and lunch. Many of them receive free school supplies, too.
A typical day in my classroom consists of many differentiated learning activities where students constantly interact with each other and learn from each other. We literally use every second that we have and my kids are exhausted by the end of the day, Ha! Honestly though, our day goes by so speedy fast that we don't even realize the day is over.
Correct the Sentence! Daily Journal will reinforce punctuation, capitalization, grammar and understanding of sentence structure with activities for every day. Second grade science encompasses a wide array of topics, from the basics of physical, earth, and life sciences to the exploration of plants, animals, and weather patterns. Science Journals would enable me to offer my students these materials in order to develop skills in life science, Earth science and physical science, and to learn English through the content area. This is especially important for my ELL and special education students, since the Science Journal offers illustrated passages and corresponding daily activities that will help my students develop critical thinking and vocabulary skills.
