Participants will actively engage and participate in seeing how elementary and/or early childhood physical education teachers can help children build English and Spanish vocabulary through moving, listening, and speaking. These skills are important as Bilingual educators are in a high demand field and movement competence is increasingly being linked to cognitive success. Culturally relevant materials such as maracas, Mariachi music, etc. will be used.
