Storyboard Text

  • Hola and welcome to our school. I'm Mrs. Gomez, the ESOL Instructional Assistant. Today you will meet a new classmate that just moved from Mexico. She doesn't know English, but we will all work together to make her feel welcomed and help her learn the language.
  • No entiendo a los niños.
  • Hi! What's your name?
  • That must be the new girl from Mexico.
  • We want our new classmate to feel welcomed and safe. I will introduce myself and then ask her how she pronounces her name. I speak Spanish to our new friend and that helps her feel at ease that someone will understand her.
  • Maria has many friends now and they too have played an important role in helping her learn English. I think she is going to do great!
  • I will get together with Maria's teacher and Administration to find out ways we can better assist her in the classroom.
  • Mrs. Gomez, please feel free to stop by at anytime. I will also send you a copy of vocabulary words to preview with Maria.
  • Sometimes, Maria might be part of a small group of ELL students that may need to review the material that the teacher presented as a whole group.
  • Hi friends! Hola amigos. Come play with me.
