Calling all ELL and dual language educators! Join us for a FREE webinar next week launching our Más Piñata line of leveled readers and exploring the benefits of dual language leveled reading.
Más Piñata was the first authentic early literacy program for Spanish-speaking students in the United States. Now Más Piñata is available for the first time in both English and Spanish as part of our beloved Bebop Books imprint, with updated texts aligned to current educational standards.
In this discussion and presentation, learn how to use these dual language Spanish-English texts to promote early literacy skills in the classroom. Attendees will come away with ready-to-implement strategies for guided reading and shared reading, bilingual and dual language programs, and reluctant or struggling readers. All advocates of students welcome!
