I miss you and I wish you are doing well during this time. 
I hope you are continuing to learn and have fun from home!  On this webpage, I am posting links to websites that can help you during your at-home learning time. Additionally, I am uploading resources that can help Mom or Dad with ideas on how to help you with your reading and writing skills. Look for those resources under the link named

Please, stay safe and don't forget to have fun!
Missing you all!

The link below takes you to the Public Home Learning page from PWCS. It a great resource for parents, students, and families.

Welcome to my page! 
My name is Doris Machin and I am currently working with First and Second-grade students who are learning English as a Second Language.  Through this page, I'll be sharing some useful resources for the students to learn and practice their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills at home. 

Here are the different language goals we should be focusing on during the next couple of months:
Grades 1-2 Language Goals


* I can listen to a story and put the pictures in the right order of events (sequence of events). 
* I can listen to a story and compare and contrast characters based on their physical attributes. 

I can retell stories with details using complete sentences. 
* I can retell stories using transitional words. (first, next, then, last)

*I  can read a story and identify the title, setting, characters, and important events.
* I can read and answer questions in a complete sentence. 

*I can write a story using complete sentences.
* I can write messages for social purposes using complete sentences. (Example: a thank you note, get-well note or a letter)

On the left side of the screen,  under the name websites to practice reading, I had listed several webpages with valuable resources for the students to practice their reading and writing skills. Just click the links and it will take you right to the page. 

Other resources children will enjoy are: 

Ell Brain Pop
Fun Brain
Colorin Colorado
Cuentos Infantiles
Children's Library
Picture Dictionary

 Have fun!
