I was wondering if anyone could recommend a family style radio station suitable to listen to during breakfast time or in the afternoon with younger kids. I'm trying to get more native speaker input into our day...but so far I haven't found a nice radio station.
If you are into podcasts, I listen to NPR all the time but that might be suitable for older kids. Then there is Disneyradio for kid friendly songs. Also, you might want to go through iHeartRadio app and search through there. Hope this bit helps!

Great idea! I don't know why it hadn't occurred to me sooner. I also started listening to NPR in the mornings and I'm enjoying it a lot. There's something to live radio (unlike podcasts) that makes you feel connected and accompanied...
But it would be great to have an Internet station in English dedicated to children. I tried the Disney station but I can't get it here in Mexico (it redirects automatically to Disney latinoamerica).
Mayken: My daughter's ml homework for this week included baking a cake - there's a cake in the story they read, and after each chapter there are questions and tasks, and the current chapter has the step-by-step recipe. She's to bring the cake to school too.

Amy: What a nice original homework! Makes such a change from standard homework, and I wouldn't be surprised if kids remember more from it! I like your bilingual school Mayken! Lucky little girl, and lucky Mummy!

Mayken: ml cake homework update: About half the class brought cake (8 out of 15), not all of them were the cake from the book recipe, but my daughter's was the most popular. (Maybe because we added food colouring and topped it with chocolate icing and smarties?)

Adam Beck: Cake is definitely my favorite kind of homework!

Jana: One of the best parts of having kids in bilingual school was getting Mother's Day cards in two languages! (With less-than-perfect spelling in both!) Ha!

Amy: (Twice) Lucky you Jana! So nice to read exciting pieces of news like yours!

Mayken: I still have that to look forward to, Jana! Mother's Day in our ML country is two weeks later, and the ml teacher goes along with that date. (It was last Sunday in our ml country.)
