Two new blogs are available to share with teachers, caregivers, and families of young children. Now that spring is back, Get Growing by Rebecca Swartz discusses a number of hands-on learning opportunities for young children to use their senses and discover the properties of soil, water, and plants. Also, teachers may have several different languages spoken in their early care and education classroom, and Resources to Help Serve Dual Language Learners by Bernadette Laumann outlines some high-quality resources that are available to assist teachers of young children who are dual language speakers.
