The last day of School at dismissal!
It was a bittersweet goodbye to all my students on Friday. This year flew by and you learned so much. I know you will do great in First Grade. I will be taking on a new endeavor next year.
We are starting a Dual Language Kindergarten program and I will be teaching the English side. I am looking forward to working closely with my Bilingual counterpart Mrs. Palomo. I will be teaching Reading to my English speaking students and she will teach Reading to her Spanish speaking students. I will teach math in English to both classes and Mrs. Palomo will teach Science and Social Studies in Spanish to both classes. We will also have a bilingual pair time where the English and Spanish students will work together in bilingual centers to promote use of the language of the day. It will be a totally new adventure for me, but Mrs. Palomo has taught Pre-K and Kinder dual one way so the two way model will only be a little different for her.
