English as an Additional Language (EAL) - Lower School

News Archive

Throughout the school year we 'spotlight' all our single subject areas. Currently, were are sharing information on our English as an Additional Language single subject. The EAL program for Kindergarten – Grade 5 students assists English language learners in acquiring the level of oral and written linguistic competence needed to accomplish their academic and social goals. In-class support and pull-out classes help students understand the vocabulary and concepts related to the units of inquiry, and specific lessons are aimed at building their knowledge of spoken language and grammar. Each grade level covers different trans-disciplinary theme and the unit of inquiry. In order to find out more about EAL classes and what specific activities were explored during the month of February, please go directly to the Moodle pages and enjoy our photos found here!
