Reading levels of children in California

Niveles de lectura de niños en California

Early Edge’s Executive Director Patricia Lozano speaks with Gabriela Teissier at Univision Edición Digital California about the reading challenges faced by California’s children, the opportunity parents have to simultaneously develop their child’s home language and English, and the importance of taking advantage of the state’s preschool programs.

“Research shows that learning the home language with one’s parents is very important to be able to learn in English. That even when we know two languages, ​​we are going to be much better students. That is why we want all parents to continue speaking Spanish at home, reading books, telling stories, and that children can learn English at school.” 

Las investigaciones demuestran que aprender la lengua materna con los padres es muy importante para poder aprender en ingles. Que aun cuando sabemos dos idiomas vamos a ser mucho mejores estudiantes. Por eso queremos que todos los padres sigan hablando español en casa, leyendo libros, contando historias y que los niños pueden aprender ingles en la escuela.”
