    1.  Overview
      1. As we begin to initiate distance learning, please know that activities will be posted on every teacher’s website. It is important to note that ALL 1stgrade ELD students are expected to complete ELD activities only.  If you or your child would like to complete the reading and writing activities posted by the homeroom teachers that would be in addition to and not in place of the activities presented in our ELD Distance Learning Classroom.  Please check this website daily to access the daily reading and writing expectations for ELD students.
      2. All ELD 1st grade students were given a red folder labeled ELD Distance Learning Folder. Additionally some supplies including pencils, crayons, scissors, and glue were provided to ensure that students have access to any and all materials they may need to complete the daily assignments.
