This is a quick reference handout for any Spanish speaking student to learn key statements, questions, and vocabulary in English when beginning school. It is ideal for newcomers because they will learn how to communicate basic needs and courtesies in order to function and participate in school. All content contained in the handout is translated from English into Spanish, so students will better understand and connect to exactly what they are vocally expressing. This handout is most beneficial when the student practices each item orally and acts out with other students. Look for future parts that will be added to increase ELLs' helpful repertoire of the English language during his or her first days at school.
