Welcome to ESL Class!
My name is Mrs. Kapadia and I am the ESL teacher here at
Ravine Drive Elementary School. In ESL class, we will practice using English in multiple domains.
These 4 domains include reading, writing, listening, and speaking. We will focus on building background knowledge and vocabulary in all subject areas. Students are encouraged to to participate in academic discussions and are provided with accountable talk stems to communicate their ideas clearly. We will be using Fundations (reading program) with our Kindergartners and First Graders. For our Second and Third graders we will be using Literacy by Design Reading/Writing Program (LBD) to enhance learning and provide support for our English Language Learners. My goal for our English Language Learners is to become proficient in English by giving them the right tools to succeed.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to email me or call me.
I am very excited to be your child's ESL teacher this year. I look forward to a successful school year with our students.
