ELL parents can boost their children's English skills by doing these two things
from Education Week
Spanish-speaking parents looking to help their children learn English should start by developing their literacy and numeracy in their first language, according to recently published research from the University of Missouri. The research found that Spanish-speaking preschoolers experience significant improvements in English acquisition during preschool when they have a good grasp of letters and basic math skills in their home language. The findings strongly suggest that early education programs that connect children's word and math knowledge in Spanish to those in English can boost school readiness for Spanish-speaking children, setting them on the path to English proficiency.
