    Good Start

    Well thanks AZteacher, this is a good start. It gives me some good ideas. I wish didn't have to break it all up, I know in my morning work and Morning Message I can get in about 1/2 hours to 45 minutes of ELD. From 9:30-10:40 can be another segment. The difficulty is that somewhere I wish I could find 1 1/2 hours uninterrupted reading/literacy center time. What is still hard is when returning from lunch recess at 11:30, there is a bathroom break so we don't get back until about 11:40. The kids are then tired and hot (it is Arizona after all!) so they need a cool quiet break. We can get going by 12:00 with a circle time until about 12:15. We might be able to fit in literacy centers from 12:15-1:45. Then we can have snack and come back for more ELD time until we dismiss. Just I still don't know how to fit in math, science, and social studies.

    I can not use the content areas to teach the ELD portion. I must emphasize vocabulary and sentence structure. Math and Science don't fit well for this as they are very hands on, and math is it's own language.
