Reading and Writing- Bilingual

As I mentioned in a previous post, it is possible and even recommended to simultaneously teach a child more than one language.  However, my research has shown me that a child should ‘master’ reading and writing in one language before learning another.  I am going to continue to research this to determine if this is true.

As of now, I plan on formally introducing reading/writing in Spanish in 1st or 2nd grade. Becca will need to attend ‘spanish’ class in the same way she might attend gymnastics class or CCD.
