English Language Learners

Nokomis Montessori ESL Team

Two teachers at Nokomis Montessori South specialize in English language instruction; they strive to promote strong foundations for academic achievement and English Language proficiency for all student's learning English as another language (English Learners or ELs).  

We utilize an inclusion model, in which our English language teachers work with individuals or groups of students within the classroom during literacy time on reading, writing, listening, and speaking.  In addition, English language teachers meet and collaborate frequently with classroom teachers to ensure that ELL instruction is always tied to grade level content.

To evaluate progress, English Learners participate in the ACCESS standardized assessment each winter.  Learners can score on a continuum of 1 (beginning to learn English) to 6 (native-like language proficiency).  

The Nokomis ELL team is also noted for supporting the annual Hmong New Year celebration. Students, parents, staff and community come together to celebrate this colorful Hmong tradition that includes delicious food, unique activities, and beautiful music and dance.

To promote strong Hmong culture and to encourage bilingualism, Hmong CLAnD (culture, language, art, and dance) classes are offered after school on Tuesdays in the fall and spring.

To contact your student's ELL teacher, please see the individual teacher pages.
