                               MRS. FEDULLO /  Hazle Twp. Early Learning Center-3rd Grade Newcomers

     

         I'd like to welcome my students to our E.L.D. class for the 2023/2024 school year.  I am so excited to start this year and I am looking forward to meeting all of my students. This year is going to be great! We have alot of activities to look forward to and our new curriculum is in place to help our newcomers learn English in both fun and interesting ways. For example, I have included projects that I know all of you will love and the best part you will be able to learn together. We will use music, books, videos, computers, sounds, games and many activities I know you will all like! In my class we learn in a variety of ways so that our class is filled with interesting and enjoyable activities. We will also be using some of the new technology our district has incorporated into our program that will help us with our learning objectives. I want to make sure all of the parents and students are informed about all important school information.   Please scroll through my page to get the latest information on school announcements, class announcements, class rules, grading policies and other important information. I look forward to seeing you in class!

                 My philosophy of teaching is to create a classroom environment for students that encourages and promotes self-responsible behavior, creativity, and interesting ways of learning. Education is a process that begins from the moment we are very young and continues throughout our lifetimes. I am also learning new things every day. Learning can be interesting, challenging and fun! It is my goal to help all of you to learn English. I also look forward to sharing information on culture and other things in life that are important to us.

     

    What is E.L.D?

         E.L.D is an abbreviation for the course name English Language Development. It was formerly named E.S.L.( English as a Second Language.)  You will be learning how to read, write, speak and listen in English.

    How will we learn English?

      In our class we will work independently, in teams and groups and with other classes occasionally. We will use many different methods to learn ENGLISH. Our school developed a curriculum or program that uses aligned standards from PA Dept. of Education to make sure our students learn in a way that promotes critical and creative thinking skills. Our school is the first in our area that is dedicated to teaching newcomer students. We will also provide instruction with other courses such as Math Spelling, Health and Science. We also employ interpreters to help our students and parents comprehend all instruction and announcements. 

    What should I do if I am confused about something or have a question?

       I urge all students and teachers to ask questions if they are confused. You can ask me anytime in class or if you are not in school you can always email me. fedullok@hasdk12.org  Always check the website as much as you can. Occasionally, I will put announcements on our page so you have access to schedules, snow days, virtual days, etc.  Please check the homework section for any work that is assigned. Our policy at this time is to do most of our work in class so homework will not be given unless it is a project.

    We will also learn about culture and traditions too! Check out this video!
