Selection of bilingual materials

Each partner selects at least 2 high quality bilingual numeracy and/or literacy materials aimed at children aged 4-8 years (e.g. a story book or math game that is available in both the host language and in one or more mother tongues or heritage languages). They will seek the advice of local language and educational experts and will document as much as possible the use of the materials in the classroom. At the partner meeting, partners will each present their materials, explaining how they are used and their effectiveness.
