Welcome to 2016-17 school year.
Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to an exciting new year!! As you prepare for it, I am sure you would like to know what you need for ESL and ESL/Social Studies classes. Here is a short list of materials for next year.
1. ONE CLASS NOTEBOOK or section in a binder to be used only for Mrs. Vallejosí ESL class and ANOTHER for Mrs. Vallejos' ESL/SOCIALSTUDIES class.
1. One folder with pockets for handouts
2. One bilingual dictionary in native language and English
3. Plenty of pens and pencils for every day
Why should ESL students bring a bilingual dictionary to class daily?
The first reason why students should have a dictionary in class is because our classes are very diverse; there are students from at least six different countries in each class. Many times the teacher's instructions and attempts to clarify meanings are not enough and it is necessary to use the dictionary to find the right word.
The second important reason is that all ESL students are allowed to use a paper dictionary during state standardized tests. During class time students will have many opportunities to learn how to use a dictionary, so they may use them on the test with ease.
For these two important reasons, I encourage you to bring and use your dictionary every day in our class and also in other English classes while being part of the ESL/Bilingual department.
