WIDA Early Years Focus Bulletin 2

In March, WIDA released their second Early Years Focus Bulletin. It highlights ECE programs in Massachusetts. (We are "trailblazers" for WIDA Early Years for the nation, by the way!) The bulletin gives concrete examples of how practitioners:
  • Support home language development
  • Welcome linguistically and culturally diverse families
  • Support the learning of developmentally appropriate academic language (DAAL)
These topics are all very relevant to what we have talked about this year. Be sure to check it out here: https://www.wida.us/standards/EarlyYears.aspx under "Focus on Early Years, Part 2."

When you read it, I wonder: 
What encourages you in your practice? 
What ideas can you add to your own repertoire

Let's chat!
