Hi, my name is Brianda Chavez and I'm studying to become an elementary bilingual teacher, kinder or 1st grade but still not sure.  Does anyone have advice on teaching in a bilingual classroom or any resources to help me? Thanks in advance.

Hello Brianda, my advice to you would be to try to keep the classroom active by asking the classroom questions as a group whether some questions in English or some in Spanish depending on the languages they know, the questions should also be based on something that they know, or are familiar with in their own lives. Good luck!
