We Learn about Languages and Cultures
Learning a language provides insights into the way people think, behave, and perceive the world, offering a window into their cultural practices and societal norms. In this set of activities, parents can find different ways to help their children make connections with aspects of our cultures. Understanding bilingualism as an asset is important for developing literacy abilities in both home languages and English.
Parents/caregivers: When you click on each grade level, a 5-page pdf document will download. You are free to practice as many activities as you can for 5 weeks. For each week, you will have 7 options to choose from: Daily Care Routines, Homework Routines, Mealtime Routines, Play and Leisure Routines, Outside Routines, Walking/Driving/Bus Routines and Anytime!
Teachers: Each set of activities has been developed to help you create opportunities for parent engagement beyond the classroom walls. These activities are thought to support multilingual children’s language and literacy development at home. Each set is based on content from the All Ohio Literacy Learning Modules-Multilingual Series.
