Welcome to Bridge’s ELL Program!
We work with students from all over the world as well as with students born in this country, who speak another language at home. It is our goal to help these students to feel comfortable and successful in the classroom by supporting their English language acquisition.
Our program is a primarily a pull-out program, which means that we work with small groups of ELL students outside of the regular classroom. We work with students by grade level and by English proficiency level for 45 minutes a day. These small groups enable us to focus our work to meet the needs of our students.
Understanding academic vocabulary in each subject area for ELLs is crucial for comprehension and academic success in their classrooms. Therefore, we teach the language of ELA (English Language Arts), math, science, and social studies through reading, writing, speaking and listening in English.
