which language they start reading in first? We are doing the One Parent One Language approach and my DD who's 5 and will start Kindergarten this fall seems more interested and can read some (basic stuff) in Spanish (my language) vs in English where she is sounding out words but gets frustrated and wants her dad to read to her. This is also happening with writing. The Kindergarten is in the States and will be in English with one hour of Spanish a day. She did a year of Kindergarten in Germany but it was all in German plus they don't teach reading and writing there until later. So what she knows in English and Spanish is what my DH and I have worked with her on. I stay at home so I know that is one reason that I have more time to work with her than my husband does. I just concerned that she will be behind when she starts school in a couple weeks.
