Here are 5 essential things you gotta do before school starts!
Gather the supplies, resources, and materials you will be needing for at least the first month. Organize your files and your grade book so you have a clear path forward.
2.) Make and share the rules you and your students come up with and post them for all to see.
3.) Assemble your substitute plans.
It is not too early. Once you have your sub plans created you won’t have to think twice about them until and unless you need them.
4.) Get your grade book ready.
5.) Get a letter ready for parents and students.
Need an ESL ELD pacing guide?
This one is free!
As many of you know, I am a K-5 ELD teacher in Ashland, Oregon. For many years I did workshops throughout my state for ESL ELD teachers. Many ELD teachers asked me for a pacing guide so I made this.
Each month has a combination of ELD units and/or grammar components essential for English learners. Again choose some or all of what I have here. Feel free to mix it up to suit you!
♥If I have a product that contains all or parts of the language I teach during that month I have listed it. All resource images are clickable links for your convenience. Just click on the image you want to see and it will take you to my TPT store.♥ I use these products according to language level more than grade level. Each column represents a language level. The column has language grammar, forms, and functions I teach for that level. Under the column heading, I list products I use to teach those language components. Some of the products may have a grade level on them, but I have used it at that language level based on the language I am teaching students at that level.
