There are many resources to help parents assist their children at home with reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. The following resources are available in Spanish and English and can be adapted for other languages as well. We encourage parents to read, sing, write, and engage their children at home both in their native language, as well as the second language in which they may be learning. Remember to encourage your child every day!
