The Primary EAL team presented at the ACAMIS Translanguaging Conference last weekend. The focus of the conference was maximizing communicative potential and the team shared successful strategies from their own work.
A highlight of the conference was when Yolanda Zhang shared why the pronouns she, he, and it can be tricky for Mandarin speakers who are learning English. Although they are written in different characters, they are all pronounced the same, which can confuse our early learners.
The Primary EAL team invites all elementary parents to their Beating the Summer Slide presentation on May 30th at 9:15am, to help families maintain and build upon the great learning their children have had over the school year, allowing them to return in August ready to go!
