Dual Language Immersion School!!

You are the first English teacher for a dual language program I have found!!! I teach literacy for 2 Kindergarten classes in our program. The Spanish teachers attend conferences every year and visit other dual language schools, but the English teachers are never included. After several years of teaching with this model I still haven't figured it all out. How do you fit it all in to give your students the literacy time they need!?!

Students practice name writing as part of their morning work during arrival. They start by tracing over highlighter (takes prep time, but I've found it's worth it), then copying from a sentence strip/name card, then writing on their own and checking with the name card (need to teach them how to do this) and then we add last names.

We also do lots of name making with die cut letters, play-doh, magnetic letters, stamps, etc.
