October is Celebrating the Bilingual Child Month
Celebrating the Bilingual Child Month was established in 2006 to recognize the many children that speak two or more languages and understand multiple cultures. This is a time to recognize their achievements, encourage continued language learning, and explore the differences and similarities of diverse languages and cultures with all students. These efforts will help connect our communities and improve global relations.
For more information about Celebrating the Bilingual Child Month and tips on how you can celebrate this special month in your classroom, check out our blog post.
Good luck and happy reading!

To celebrate International Literacy Day, Language Lizard is launching its Bilingual Book Promotion which will last until the end of October. Visit the Language Lizard website to learn more about this promotion and how you can receive free bilingual books!
The theme for the 2012 International Literacy Day is literacy and peace. As the UNESCO website states:
“Literacy contributes to peace as it brings people closer to attaining individual freedoms and better understanding the world, as well as preventing or resolving conflict. The connection between literacy and peace can be seen by the fact that in unstable democracies or in conflict-affected countries it is harder to establish or sustain a literate environment.”
Please join us in celebrating this wonderful day!
To learn more about the Language Lizard Bilingual Book Promotion, visit the Language Lizard website. You have until the end of October to win free bilingual books!
