English Learners and Parent Engagement

English Learners and Parent Engagement

Parent engagement is the number one predictor of early literacy success and academic achievement. Research shows that reading daily to young children stimulates early brain development and helps build key language, literacy, and social skills. For English Learners this is even more important as their parents are often speaking and reading in Spanish while their children are learning in English.

The Latino Family Literacy Project is the nation’s premier provider of parent involvement programs for English Learners and their parents. One of the best ways for Spanish-speaking parents and kids to learn academics together is through programs like The Latino Family Literacy Project that embraces the entire family. It starts with teachers and staff being trained through either an in-person workshop offered in the area or through an online webinar. The program uses bilingual and bicultural books created specifically for English Learners for academic support.

The Latino Family Literacy Project introduces the teachers to a language acquisition method and a step- by-step literacy instruction process. It involves family reading for Hispanic parent involvement, vocabulary development, and English-language development for parents and their children.

Lectura Books provide training and curriculum for The Latino Family Literacy Project. There is currently an All-Inclusive Special Offer when you order the program materials, you will receive two FREE webinar trainings for school staff. This includes two curriculum binders and shipping for products.
