In this webinar, presenter Adilene Rogers will discuss how to create a Spanish-English bilingual storytime that is culturally inclusive and will strengthen the relationship with your Spanish speaking community. She’ll also cover the importance of early literacy practices on a bilingual child’s development. While this webinar focuses mainly on Spanish-English storytimes, the principles and theories can be used for any language.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Learn the importance of bilingual storytime and how it supports families raising bilingual children
  • Understand the importance of having culturally relevant material such as books, songs and rhymes
  • Understand some of the common misconceptions of raising bilingual children and how to support parents who are raising their children bilingually.
  • For librarians that are not fluent --be able to work with a partner to develop and present a bilingual storytime
  • Learn some traditional Spanish songs and rhymes as well as different movement activities that can be used.
