Be sure to check out the wonderful new Spanish Resources that have been added to our Resources page, under the "Spanish Resources" folder. A big thank you to Zoila Esquivel Moreno, District Coach, and the Early Literacy Cadre Team at San Jose Unified School District for translating and providing these excellent tools. A great literacy program should be available to everyone!
