Welcome to English Language Arts Electronic Learning!
Welcome to Yonkers Public Schools' Distance Learning Platform. Yonkers Public Schools is providing students with lessons/assignments in English Language Arts for a fourteen day period. The ELA lesson/assignments have been organized by grade level for Kindergarten through twelfth grade. The expectation is that students will continue to learn and practice their ELA skills and strategies while out of their classroom for any emergency school closings. All of the lesson/assignments are aligned with the Next Generation ELA standards.
Lessons were developed to address foundational skills as well as comprehensions skills and include the writing of constructed responses as well as short responses. Lesson plans are also included for each grade level to give students and parents an overview of each day's lesson. Students are required to complete one lesson per day and submit the completed packet to their teacher upon their return to school.
In addition to lessons, Yonkers Public Schools has provided digital books with interactive activities for Kindergarten through sixth grade so that students can continue to read for pleasure while also expanding their knowledge of content areas.
