It is very important to converse with the parents about their family. Traditions, culture, foods and books. We need to incorporate as much about the families into our child cares without having a tourist approach to learning. Have parents participate by bringing found items in about their culture or pictures of events that celebrate their lives with the children. It is good to have books about each culture as well. Have a parent read on tape to the children. Have a get together with all parents to exchange ideas. Be able to offer real objects for the children to experience is just as important to their learning and supporting a dual language learner first with their home language and then English.
