We know it is our job as educators to provide effective learning activities for all children and their families. Often, it can be intimidating for families that are learning both a new culture and language to participate in learning opportunities in their child’s program.

It is important that we are mindful of providing activities that are appropriate for culturally and linguistically diverse families. The first step to ensure we are doing this is to critically analyze what it is we are expecting from families.

As you prepare activities that involve families, ask yourself, is this activity one that families can do together with minimal

language support? Does the activity include opportunities for hands on, interactive participation?

Implementation of Activity

Brief description of activity: Children will work with their families to match vocabulary word cards that have one word in English and its counterpart in their native language. Picture clues will be on the cards to help the families. Children will use a physical response to demonstrate certain words such as “under”: the student would put the stuffed animal under a table. If the word was “behind” they might demonstrate this by putting the stuffed animal behind their backs.

Location where activity will be conducted: early childhood education setting

Possible challenges with this activity: constructing word cards in the languages

Accommodations for ELL families: it is designed for them

Safety concerns, if any: none
