Child reads bilingual book about Egyptian mythology

We love October because it’s Celebrating the Bilingual Child Month! What a wonderful opportunity to recognize the children in our lives who speak more than one language, and who also understand multiple cultures. 

Now is the perfect time to start planning ways to encourage literacy and parental involvement, and celebrate the children who work so hard to learn a new language.


We have put together a free handout that features 10 ideas for Celebrating the Bilingual Child Month. In it, you’ll find inspiration to showcase the bilingual children in your classroom, get bilingual parents involved in the learning, and get all students excited to learn about new cultures and languages. Print and share this handout with parents and teachers, and start celebrating!
