Grupo Azul

Grupo Azul is the term I used to refer to heritage or native Spanish-speakers in my classroom.  I sometimes present them with adjusted work to encourage development of academic vocabulary, spelling and proper grammar.  This group generally works on an extended vocabulary list while I teach other rest of the students the words they are learning for the first time.  Grupo Azul assignments have their own due dates.  See attached for more information and for the Grupo Azul vocabulary sheet.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
