Ms. Jeppesen's ELL Class

Subject: 
English

I work with students K-5 who know a language other than English. English Language Learners spend 45 minutes with me each day working toward becoming bilingual, perhaps even multilingual.  

Remote Learning for English Language Learners

We will start ELD class with a Zoom Class meeting.  I've sent a note home on Friday, Nov. 13m 2020, with the days and times for our ELD class.  Your child's daily attendace in class is very important! I can't wait to see their wonderful, smiling faces! :o)

Please Use the DRA feature to access books at your child's reading level.  Click on DRA level and there is a dropdown of choices. as a general rule level A-6 is  kindergarten level or beginning ELLs, Level 8-16 is 1st grade level still a good place for emerging ELLs.  2nd grade is about 18-28 or intermediate ELLs. 3rd grade is 30-38 and 4th and 5th grade are above that level if they are students who are proficient in English.
