Developing a culturally and linguistically responsive classroom environment for all children

**Participants do not need to be fluent in their student’s languages to attend this session.

Developmentally appropriate classroom environments should be authentic, language-rich, play-based, and built upon a foundation of children’s social, linguistic, and cultural wealth.

In this session, we will break down what this should look like into three areas: 

(1) the print that is reflected in the classroom, 

(2) culturally familiar visuals, and 

(3) the culturally relevant materials we would expect to find in a culturally and linguistically responsive classroom. We will share how EC educators can reflect children’s home language(s) and culture throughout their classroom space using practical strategies.
