Newcomer & SLIFE

NEW!  Download the excerpt from Shawn & Margarita's book to help you and your colleagues know the Newcomers at your school.

See Newcomer Continuum.pdf below.


This section for Newcomer support is in flux and has regular updates. 


All items are available for individual teacher classroom instructional use. Be sure to share where you found them.


If you would like more information on how we use them please contact us.


The Table Tents & supports provided are examples and not meant to be inclusive of the language and supportive phrases, academic vocabulary, sentence starters/frames and guides ELs and Emergent Bilinguals need.

We have collected these from the wonderful teachers we have had the pleasure of working with.  As examples, they are simply that, examples.


Please feel free to create your own and share with your colleagues.


If you'd like to share your creations with us, just let us know and if we feature them on our website, we'll give you full credit.
