Learning Language Every Day
Learning a first, second or third language happens all day every day! This packet, provided by WIDA, gives parents an easy way to encourage their younger elementary school children to talk. Topics are familiar; answers are open-ended, graphics are colorful. The packet is available in 8 languages: Arabic, dari, English, Korean, Pashto, Simplified Chinese, Spanish and Ukrainian.
Teachers can also use the packet as a way to get to know their new emerging bilinguals on the first few days of school. These activities lower that affective filter for ELs and establish a safe learning environment.
