Como Usar Storyworks Jr. en Casa
We are thrilled to introduce a new Storyworks Jr. adviser from Round Rock, Texas: Alejandro Sifuentes.
He is an amazingly passionate dual-language third-grade teacher from Round Rock ISD whose mission is to provide his students and families with a better ELL transition than he had growing up. His creative juices led him to develop his own YouTube channel where he posts wonderful videos on key ELA skills to keep his kiddos engaged! We begged him to share his new video, "Como Usar Storyworks Jr. en Casa" (How to use Storyworks Jr. at home) for families who speak Spanish. (Note the English-caption option in the toolbar, if you need it.) He's our new hero and we hope he can help your family engagement efforts with ELL families too!
Please feel free to share this video with families through your email communication in the weeks to come.
And don't forget we now offer parent newsletters in English and in Spanish for every new issue. Click here to find the letter for the October/November issue, which invites family participation and important conversation about what your students are reading and learning in school.
If you have a great family engagement idea, we'd love to hear about it. Send us an email or post your ideas below!
