I was just wondering if some of you veteran teachers had any ideas...I got a new student last week straight from the Dominican Republic...who speaks no english!! Thankfully I have 3 boys in my room who can speak Spanish to tell him what he needs to bring home and where we are going... He is in a reading and math class that has an ESL teacher, but he is in my class for science and social studies. I feel like I can't do anything with him because he doesn't understand a word I say. On top of that, he is at a kindergarten reading level...in Spanish!! I think he is going to have to be retained....but does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do with him while the rest of the class is doing their science & social studies??? Thanks!
