Teacher: Sylvia C. Shealy
Kindergarten Spanish Immersion Pleasant Hill Elementary
Math and Science

General Class Description
The kindergarten students in this class will be immersed in the target
language of Spanish while learning math and science. The teacher or her
assistant while in the presence of any student will only speak Spanish. 50
students will be served this year. The students will attend math and science
½ of their academic day. The students will attend Language Arts with the
Cooperating teacher Cheryl Banks the other ½ of each instructional day.
       Prior to the first day of school, each student will be assessed
informally in English, with the help of the parents to determine learning
styles and skill levels so that differentiated instruction can be maximized
from the first day of school. The Everyday Math (EDM) baseline
Assessment will be used for this initial assessment. An appointment time has
already been given to each child that is currently signed up.
       All math instruction will follow the Everyday Mathematics pacing
guides as set by the district.
Science will be based on the district-pacing guides as well.

Units/Themes will be incorporated weekly to
       introduce new Spanish Vocabulary,
       Address all math, science and Spanish state Standards
       Align with Progress Reports
       align with Language Arts Class

       The Spanish and Language Arts will align and collaborate on long range
plans to ensure that whole language can be incorporated into both

 I.     Standards Pacing Guide: Mathematics and Science Combined

       The first two weeks of school will be devoted to learning vocabulary and
routines necessary to function in the target language while exploring math
            After the first two weeks of school, many of the math standards will
 addressed through daily activities as they are incorporated into morning meetings,
 calendar time, shared stories, and science. Ordinal numbers, calendar, time, money,
 comparisons, and positional words will be addressed several times during the entire
   school year to ensure that students will be able to grasp these concepts before
                             they are formally assessed.

       After the first two weeks of math exploration and Spanish vocabulary, the
students will complete math and science work areas each day. The work areas will
be independent work that will be based on math and science state and national
standards and on the district-pacing guides
       They will also participate in tubbing (canastas) Monday-Thursday reserving
Fridays for science experiments or special math days.
       Beginning in January, every Monday each student will be given a Spanish book
to read in class and share with parents. These books will be returned each Friday
and a new book will be given. This

Technology will be addressed daily using smartboard technologies:
      Introduction of calculators
      Riverdeep Destination Math
      Everyday mathematics suggestions
      Online games

Other technology used in the classroom;
          PowerPoint’s to coincide with lessons and songs
          Smartboard lessons based on EDM and science lessons
          Microscope
          Music on the computer and cd’s
          Digital camera
            Microphones


       Monthly calendars will be distributed and are aligned to standards being
taught in the classroom. Each “assignment” aligns to the standards being taught and
should only require 5-10 minutes to complete. In addition, the parents will receive
EDM homelinks, which gives more suggestions of how to reinforce classroom
instruction. Take home folders games and back bags are sent home on a weekly
       Raul and Paco are sent home with each child twice. These are traveling
simple science experiments the children complete with parents.
       Beginning in January, every Monday each student will be given a Spanish book
to read in class and share with parents. These books will be returned each Friday
and a new book will be given. This
                    Procedures and Daily Routines
                              (not all inclusive)
          To pledge that valuable instructional time is not wasted
          To help students develop a sense of pride and ownership of the
          To ensure that adults/volunteers working in the room
            understand what is expected of them and each student during
            the school day
          To make each day a positive and happy experience for each
            child in the room
          To foster student independence

Daily Procedures:
   1. Beginning from the first day, the morning students will take their
      folders out of their book bags and place in the cubby (Cubito) with
      their name. As the year progresses all of the students will become
      responsible for taking papers in and out of their folders. Beginning
      from the first day, the afternoon students will take their folders out
      of their cubbies and place in their book bags to take home.
   2. Each student will hang their book bags on the hooks under the cubbies
      with his/her names.
   3. After hanging book bags, the morning students will make their lunch
      choice. The students will take their lunch nametag and place it under
      their lunch choice. (The collective nametags will make a graph.)
   4. Each child will be given a take home folder that will be used to
      communicate with the parents. All student work and school related
      papers will be sent home in this folder.
   5. During the first month of school, the students will learn about the
      classroom jobs. Once each child has had a turn practicing the jobs,
      the jobs will rotate weekly. When the weekly rotations begin, the
      children will be able to perform their job with little interference but
      much encouragement from the adults in the room.
   6. Students will be expected to complete all work during the day.
7. Positive student behavior will be rewarded with tokens. At the
    beginning of the year when the student receives 5 tokens, they will go
    to the treasure box. As the students begin to understand classroom
    procedures and expectations, the number of tokens needed will
    increase. After January, the students will receive pennies to use in
    the classroom store. The pennies will progress to nickels, dimes,
    quarters, and dollars-this will help the children to identify each coin
    and the value of each coin.
8. Each student will file his/her written work in the file box.
9. At the end of the instructional day, the students will attempt to place
    chairs on the desk and work cooperatively to clean up their table.
10. Each student will be assigned specific seating at each table. The
    seating will rotate as the year progresses to ensure that all students
    have a chance to get to know one another.
11. Each student will sit on the carpet squares according to the color of
    their table. (The students sitting at the green table will sit on a green
    carpet square-one student per square.)
12. Whenever the students are leaving the room, they will line up
    alphabetically by first name. The only exceptions are the line leader,
    caboose, and door holder of the week. The line leader and door helper
    will be first in line and the caboose will be last in line.
13. Students may go to the restroom anytime they wish without
    permission with the exception of circle time. Circle time is valuable
    instructional time.
14. Before going to lunch all students will go the bathroom and wash
    hands. The students will line up according to gender. The students will
    enter the bathroom in groups of 4/5 until all students have had a
    chance to use the bathroom. After using the bathroom, the students
    will line up by lunch boxes, salad, number one choice, number two
    choice. The lunch box students who do not need milk will go directly to
    the lunch table.
15. Rest time- During the first semester the children will be given rest
    time in the afternoon session. The rest time will begin with 25 minutes
    in August decreasing five minutes each month. Beginning in January
    the students will not have rest time. The rest mats will be sent home
16. Snack time-students will be given a snack each day in the afternoon.
  17. Chime time is teacher time. When the chime is struck, the students
      will stop and listen to instructions. “Cuando el timbre toca cierra la
  18. Friday is library time. We will go to the library listen to a story and
      check out a book. Therefore, library books will be due back on
      Thursday to ensure that everyone will be able to check out a new
      book. If a student forgets their book, a reminder note will be sent
      home in the take home folder on Thursday.

Instructional time
  19. All students will complete an assigned work station-centros de
      trabajo. The students will be expected to work cooperatively.
      Everyone will stay to help one another. Once everyone has completed
      the task and the center is cleaned, the students may go to free
      centers-centros gratis. The centers will rotate on a daily basis. The
      centers rotate not the students. The baskets are color-coded
      according the color of the table. (The red table will complete the red
  20. Centros gratis-free centers-Three children will be allowed in each
      center. Once the student has made their choice, they will take the
      folder with the picture/name of the center and place this in their
      cubby. This visual will allow the teachers to know who was in which
      center in the event the center is not cleaned up. The assistant will
      place the folders back in the appropriate centers.
  21. Baskets- Canastas- Each day the students will spend 10-15 minutes
      completing canasta of their choice. The student will mark their name
      as having completed the basket. The students can only chose the same
      basket twice in one week.
  22. Journals- the students will create two journals throughout the year to
      show progress-Everyday math journal and student created journal.
      The EDM journal will coincide with lessons being taught. The student
      created journal will be a mixture of math and science lessons created
      by the teacher and the students.
  23. The teacher will create a monthly homework assignment sheet to be
      sent home the beginning of each month beginning in September. These
      calendars are to be returned at the end of each month. The teacher
      will reward each child for returning his/her homework.
  24. Each Monday a classroom newsletter will be posted on the teacher
      webpage. In addition, the teacher will sent notes and/or emails
      reminders of important events. The teacher will make necessary phone
      calls to the parents. The teacher will also send home cougar reports.
  25. The teacher will assess the students daily. These assessments will be
      formative and summative. The formative assessments will help the
      teacher to differentiate assignments. The summative assessment will
      help the teacher determine mastery of math and science standards.
      In addition to regular assessments the teacher will pilot linguafolio
      this school year.
  26. The teacher will create daily, weekly, and monthly lesson plans based
      on state standards, district standards, everyday math curriculum, and
      science curriculum. The lessons will be differentiated as needed to
      ensure student success.
  27. The teacher and the instructional assistant will work with all students
      in small groups on a rotating basis. This is valuable instructional time
      and the teachers will stay with the group until all students have
      completed the assignments.
  28. The teacher and the instructional assistant will only speak Spanish in
      the presence of any student at school or outside of school.

      3) Small groups
      4) Individually

Assessment tools used:
   1) Teacher made summative assessment tool based on progress report for
   2) Everyday math assessment guides
   3) Smartboard technologies

On the quarterly progress reports the students will receive

       1- Doesn’t understand the concept; no consistency in demonstrating the task;
      requires frequent prompts
      2- Some understanding of the concept; able to demonstrate the task but requires
