Children Reading

Our Beliefs


We believe...

  • that children only learn to read once, and that this process is easiest in the language a child speaks best. For Spanish speaking children, learning to read and write in Spanish makes it more likely they will later achieve a high level of English literacy

Program Goals

Students will...

  • ulitmately experience greater success in school

 

Program Structures


In Eiber's Dual Language Program, students receive integrated instruction in Spanish and English.

70 percent of instruction is initially delivered in Spanish, and 30 percent of instruction is in English. As a student progresses through the program, the ratio gradually evolves to a 50-50 balance of English and Spanish instruction.

Grades K-2 | 70% Spanish vs. 30% English

Grade 3 | 60% Spanish vs. 40% English

Grades 4-6 | 50% Spanish and 50% English

 

Parent Tips

Parents should support their childrens' bilingualism.

  • Talk about the school day and your child's learning in your home language.
