A year in my 4th grade Bilingual class goes as follows: On the first day, I am met with 22 pairs of wary eyes. They are suspicious of the teacher and what might come out of her mouth. The horror in those watchful eyes escalates as I begin to speak English, with Spanish translation support. Some of these children have been in the U.S. a few years and have a general concept of the English language, but a handful are newcomers from Mexico. Consequently, I sense a justifiable fear with these students, but it creates an obstacle when transitioning students into their second language. As the school year progresses, their unease lessens with continued Spanish support while teaching most subjects in English. Eventually many students are suddenly feeling confident about themselves! At this point, some are daring to ask a question in English, or speaking conversationally with their peers. However there are some unwilling to take a risk - yet. Time, practice, encouragement and confidence are needed.
