Resources for Teaching Languages to Children


Bastille Day Resources for Kids

BASTILLE DAY IS JULY 14TH and as part of my effort to learn more about the culture of French speaking countries, I decided to do a little searching on some fun resources for kids related to this holiday. This also connects to one of my goals for the upcoming school year-integrate more world culture, not just culture from the Spanish speaking world, in my elementary Spanish classes as a way to support my students who are heritage speakers of languages other than Spanish. Though we don't have a huge population of these learners in my district, we do have a fair number, and my room has been the primary place where they can share and talk about this heritage... but I want to bump it up some more! But I digress.... here are some fun links and resources I've found for Bastille Day, celebrated in FRANCE:
