Serving ELs in Pre-K

ELs in pre-K 3 and 4 settings are also known as dual language learners (DLLs) because they are acquiring their home language and English simultaneously. Setting up the classroom for DLL success in academics, English language acquisition, and socio-emotional development can be achieved by thoughtful planning before students begin the school year.

This month’s webinar provides an opportunity to learn about the unique needs of DLLs and their families in order to prepare participants for enriching interactions with and positive learning outcomes for DLLs.  During this webinar, participants will:

  • Examine the importance of establishing relationships with the families of DLLs;
  • Learn what challenges to anticipate in the classroom and how to mitigate them; and
  • Consider strategies to maximize DLL participation in the classroom.
