Multilingual Education is a growing program all across the United States. However, appropriate multilingual educational materials are few; especially those tailored to early childhood and primary grade levels.
Teaching multilingual pursues to serve our ELL students with child-friendly and research-based materials that help them acquire the academic literacy and essential skill they need to be successful in two languages.
In addition, each level of picture/vocabulary tiles, match its corresponding teacher cards which are used to introduce picture/vocabulary tile.
Finally, all of these 5 levels add more than 300 new words to the pre-k and kindergarten students’ repertoire at the end of an academic year.
Research confirms that all these skills are essential and necessary for students’ success in reading readiness.
Therefore, Pre-K and kindergarten students must be able to master these skills in order to understand how words are made from the whole to the parts and from the parts to the whole.
Once these skills are mastered, the students will start decoding words at a faster rate and with accuracy; both in Spanish and English.
At home or in public schools, the desire is for our nation to increase children’s reading skill comprehension as the highway of information presents a challenge to all of us to handle new valuable information every day. The demands are high, and children’s ability to read well and develop critical thinking skills is the priority.
Teaching Multilingual, LLC is a research-based company that thrives in creating educational materials to ensure students master the skills needed to become successful readers and to nurture their love for reading and writing. We focus on the most effective and practical research to develop reading and writing abilities and language acquisition for students other than English. The topic of reading and writing, and language development have been broadly studied, and day by day, new experts share their findings through the World Wide Web. In this globalized world, information travels faster than ever.
More than ever, professionals in education have access to the latest findings on how to more efficiently teach children how to read, how to help struggling readers, and train teachers and parents with practical strategies that are needed for students. Our products intend to offer students not only exposure to the content, vocabulary, and Balanced Literacy needed to succeed but also strategies that have been successful and tried under trials and studies with 100s of students. As the Science of reading research indicates, we believe in the simple view of reading that comprises pre-reading skills for decoding words and language comprehension, in which language acquisition is imperative. Children must develop decoding skills, phonological awareness, and sight word mastery, along with an increment in vocabulary and a broad spectrum of literacy skills to master READING COMPREHENSION, according to Scarborough’s Reading Rope.
We start at the beginning. We believe a successful early childhood education in reading and writing solidifies the rest of a student’s education. Our own products have shown to be successful in classrooms where teachers are committed and intentional and where explicit teaching takes place. As we grow our business, we are committed to formally collecting data to see areas for possible improvement. Part of our research and best practices come from sources such as Reading Research Quarterly, National Reading Panel, International Reading Association, National Association for the Education of Young Children, and studies from highly accredited experts such as Lucy Calkins, Douglas Fisher, Wiley Blevins among others, and Universities across the nation and abroad.
