Biliteracy Series: Cross-linguistic Connections between Spanish and English (K-2nd)

The Biliteracy Series provides various sessions to support Kindergarten through 2nd grade students as they develop biliteracy skills. The sessions will provide an opportunity for participants to explore all four language domains with a focus on reading and writing instruction that is designed specifically for students in a bilingual classroom. Participants will also build a deeper understanding for making metalinguistic connections and integrating sociocultural competence that is necessary for success in the bilingual classroom.

In this session, participants will:

  • explore aspects of literacy and how these connect between the two languages.

  • review and compare phonology, morphology, semantics, syntax and literacy development in both languages.

  • review concepts that are not transferred from one language to another.
