                             Welcome to Ms. Chipman's Exciting  ESL Classes!

    At Hall-Woodward, this school year 2015-2016, we will continue implementing the WIDA (World-Class Instructional Design and Assessment) English Language Proficiency Standards in our lessons with our students.

    This year, I am teaching Kdg., 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade ELLs (English Language Learners) in integrated content lessons, utilizing the SIOP approach, which will incorporate standards in the Language of Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. It is my goal to make the content more comprehensible for all students.  With 3rd, 4th, and 5th gr., we will be teaching guided reading lessons, integrating science and social studies, and alternating weeks with lessons focused on the language of math.  With Kdg., 1st, and 2nd graders, we will teach ESL during intervention time in the classrooms.
