A website shared with us Wide Open School (wideopenschool.org) has many resources for teachers and students to use. I found a great article to share with the parents of my English Learner students titled "Learning and Thinking Differences in English Learners." It discusses a variety of important topics involving you, your child and the school, but most important, it reiterates the importance of using your home language as much as possible and the benefits it gives to your child. It's an easy read. Enjoy!
As I always tell my parents: Your child will not get confused using his/her home language and English. It's a benefit for them!
