Preschool GLAD® is about creating a rich environment of language, ideas and concepts. Preschool, Transitional Kindergarten, and Kindergarten students engage in learning at their own entry points and are given multiple ways to respond. This model fosters a success-based, interactive environment that stresses cross-cultural respect and sensitivity and that values the family, community, and language of the child. Intentionally creating language rich environments for our early childhood emergent bilingual students takes time and effort. Preschool GLAD® engages participants in thinking about how children learn language and introduces successful research-based strategies for creating a language rich setting that is alive with words, aloud with language, and results in language-rich learning.
