I teach elementary EL. During the "normal" school year I co-teach math, reading, and science in classrooms and sometimes work with pull out groups. I am wondering what other elementary EL teachers did for distance learning this past spring and/or what you plan on doing this fall if learning is online? I am trying to get some ideas to share with my school.

I zoomed with our K student and one of her parents would read a story in Spanish and then the student and I would read the same story in English. We used RazKids for this. For the two students we had in 4th and 5th I used Brainpop EL, a Daily Vocabulary packet and spent a lot of time having one of them read their social studies assignments to me and giving guidance when needed. I am also the elementary tech and K-12 librarian. We chose not to do lessons for students in those areas, so I was able to commit more time to EL.

I did a lot of trial and error! Among other things we provided oral language practice activities for all of our students, modified grade-level reading assignments for lower ELs, and contacted all students on our caseloads weekly. I also had a group of low intermediate 2nd graders that zoomed with me every day and we would do their reading work together over video call, since the comprehension was too tricky for them to do without support, but the assignments were within their word reading abilities.

My daughter just attended a new teacher workshop at a ROE. A Superintendent presented (not hers) and told this room full of new teachers, “Real teachers get to school at 7:00 am and go home at 8:00 pm.” Really?? As a veteran teacher of 26 years, I was appalled! Makes sense why new teachers are leaving the classroom in their first five years and why we have a teacher shortage in Illinois with those type of expectations.
