English Learners

Resources, ideas, and information for parents raising English Language Learners in US elementary, middle, and high schools.

English language learners need consistent guidance and support in school and at home. There are various challenges that impact the education of language learners. For instance, these challenges may include language development and a lack of resources. As parents, it is most important to recognize that we can positively impact our kid’s learning.


Kid’s Books

The goal of academic learning is to master reading comprehension. Parents can help children meet this goal by providing literature resources.

Access free virtual books and see purchase options for engaging print books. Because all kids, including English language learners, must have access to English books in print also fosters reading development for English learners.
