English Language Development
Welcome to Mrs. Dains' ELD classroom. I am very excited to be a part of your learning this year at Coyote Ridge. During our forty-five minutes together, we will focus on reading, writing, listening, and speaking in English. We will extend and develop your understanding of both social and academic English while honoring the language and learning that you have already experienced in your first language. In a small group setting, we will have the opportunity to learn and connect with the concepts and skills that you are studying in your homeroom while advancing your 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 non-native English speaking students 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.
