Dear Casimir Pulaski School Families, 

Hello, my name is Mary Haviland. I am your English as a New Language (ENL) teacher at Casimir Pulaski School  for grades  K-8.  I am very happy to be teaching your children English as a New Language.  I learned Spanish in kindergarten in Puerto Rico and studied it for many years.  I know first hand how it feels to be a newcomer in another country. I also taught English in Japan and experienced being a newcomer there. I enjoy teaching and learning new words and vocabulary and I love seeing my students improve speaking, reading, writing and understanding English. 

I am looking forward to seeing all my returning students and having an exciting year teaching English As a New Language for Pulaski students!

 

  • All students should be reading or listening to books in English to improve their language skills and vocabulary.  They can listen to many books on Benchmark.  Each child should try to learn 5 new words each day!

    Here are some of my recommended educational websites:

    Imagine Learning- All ENL students can access it through Clever to improve their English

    Learn Englishhttps://www.opdome.com/ - It's an online picture dictionary.  Great site for beginners to learn beginner vocabulary with pictures and pronunciation  

    Starfall - https://www.starfall.com/h/ - Great for K-2 and newcomer students, teaches the alphabet and sounds, as well as beginning phonics and word families, fun stories and interactive learning games

    Storyline Online -  https://www.storylineonline.net/  -Great classic picture books read by famous people

    Handwriting for Kids - http://www.handwritingforkids.com/ - Click on Manuscript or Cursive.  Great printables for any letter of the alphabet, handwriting paper, and create your own with your child's name to practice. Watch the animation for how to write each letter.
