FREE Spanish Version!

During distance learning, many parents of Newcomers are overwhelmed by the school work presented in all English. This kit contains activities in both Spanish and English. The child can do the activity in Spanish ("Comfort Zone") with the parent and then do the same activity in English independently (using the Spanish version as a template). It is a win-win language development pedagogy! The parent will be able to help the child and the child will be building language and concepts in both languages!!!
