ELL Jumpstart Academic Language

ELL Jumpstart Academic Language meets in Block B in S205 (ELL room).

The students successfully created games and toys that make use of different types of force. We had a fun day playing with each group’s creation. Our next two classes will focus on unit review for our test on Wednesday May 14th.

Ahead of us, is our final Science unit on Nutrition and the Digestive System. We will be getting to know how to use a textbook, how to read and construct graphic organizers like flow charts and Venn diagrams. We will also be focusing on the food groups and how our body uses the food we eat.
