I have found that this song settles the children quickly without effort. Sung to the tune of (Pierre Jacques) It is ring time, It is ring time,
come and sit, come and sit
Let us learn together,

“The Spanish Immersion program is wonderful. My daughter loves learning another language. She often speaks Spanish in our home and encourages her brothers to speak it as well. She loves to teach them the new Spanish concepts she learns daily. She has learned so much, and has become quite fluent in short period of time. The benefits of being bilingual are simply immeasurable. She has become a more confident and secure little girl.”
“I like Courthouse Academy because it’s a big place and it’s comforting to me. Comforting things I like are the chairs, the library, the book fair, and the playground is awesome! I like my Spanish teacher, Miss Yolanda. I like my teacher, Miss Liz, because she has a big birthday. I can give her a birthday hug and presents.”

Bubbles Bubbles Bubbles!! We love them, my preschoolers love them and they make a great cool down activity after a great hot recess outside. We simply come inside put on some music (soothing works best) and settle down while blowing bubbles. There is definitely something special about bubbles!
When you read aloud to your students, ask the Spanish speakers to raise their hand when they think they hear a cognate. Stop reading and discuss that cognate. Point out the subtle differences you hear between the Spanish and English words. If you have a French, Italian, or Portuguese speaker in your class, invite them to contribute cognates in that language.
The multiyear study by The American Institutes for Research estimates the impact of transitional kindergarten on school readiness for more than 7,655 English learners across 75 districts. It also measures the English language development skills of nearly 55,555 English learners in California who took the California English Language Development Test , an English proficiency assessment given to K-67 students.
