How on earth does one teach ml writing to their child!?
Hi, Amy, if you're looking for resources to get her started, you might check out TeachersPayTeachers.com. It is super popular among US teachers, homeschoolers, etc. This search might be helpful for you:
Amy, I know my daughter also refuses to write even an Xmas card, never mind a letter to Santa although I did manage to convince her to write one Xmas card!! It's great that your husband can help out with ml2. Thanks, will check out Story Box...hadn't heard of that.
Raquel, great to see you again too! I know, it's pretty confusing for them!
Adam, thanks! I'm trying to give my daughter as much exposure as possible but it can be difficult, even though she goes to a "bilingual" school, it's still not as bilingual as I'd like it to be. I have to get back to doing more Captive Reading too!
I think you have to pay to use the materials on Teachers Pay Teachers...there are lots of free printable online materials too. I like www.dltk-kids.com/ and www.anglomaniacy.pl/. As an EFL teacher I know many more websites but actually getting my daughter to write or do these activities or worksheets is another story!!

Mayken: Hey Adam Beck, how come your photo on that list is bigger than everyone else's?

Adam Beck: Mayken, I don't know, but I wish I could say it's because I'm taller! My son (almost 12) is now nearly as tall as I am. Just yesterday I told him that I have to start growing again!

Mayken: Adam Beck, thanks for sharing the impressions of your trip to China! I love those duck boats and that doorway! And meeting those kids wanting to speak English with you is so amazing!(I won't enter the giveaway because I'm afraid of winning the chicken claws!)

Mayken: My friend S asked her bilingual 2.5-year-old daughter: What language do mommy & daddy speak? D: English! S: What language does Grandma speak? D: French! S: What language do the cats speak? D (*thinks, then answers*): Meow!

Amy: Bless!! how cute is that!!! Reminds me of a similar thing that happened with my youngest when she was 18 months: she said the sound right for every animal but the cow. She kept answering "Lola" because of a famous Spanish nursery rhyme about a cow!

Alba: My son caught us by surprise when we said thank you (in English) to a waiter in a Mexican restaurant, and he said "gracias" (thank you) to him too in Spanish, also signing it! He was having a blast and there was some Spanish music in the background.

Adam Beck: Sounds like a wonderful moment, Alba!
