English Language Development



Welcome to our ELD classroom. I am very excited to be a part of your student's learning this year at Coyote Ridge. During our forty-five minutes together, our group will focus on reading, writing, listening, and speaking in English. We will extend and develop an understanding of both social and academic English while honoring the learning that your child has already experienced in his or her first language. In a small group setting, we will have the opportunity to learn and connect with the concepts and skills that your student is studying in his or her grade-level classroom, while advancing the use of the English language. Welcome and I look forward to a wonderful year together!

*ELD (English Language Development) is an instructional time for our school’s English Language Learners to focus on the areas of reading, writing, listening and speaking in a small group setting. Using the State Standards, district Units of Study, and levels of communicative competence, individual language strengths and needs of students are addressed.


Students are expected to attend their course daily during their assigned time.


ELD is a graded subject.  Your student's progress will be monitored through various assignments, work completion and pre/post assessments.  Grades will be recorded in Infinate Campus and reflected on reports cards.
