My presentation is geared towards ESL and Homeroom teachers. It is based on my successful practices with the children ages 3-6, which will be profiled in my contribution to the new edition of the book by Prof. Roma Chumak-Horbatch "Linguistically Appropriate Practices" and who will also present at the ECIS ESLMT Conference in Copenhagen in 2017. I hope that after my presentation, the teachers will take to their schools and start implementing many different strategies to welcome their multicultural and multilingual students, celebrate their cultures and enrich their learning.
