How do you say 'I like to dance' in Spanish using the present tense?
In Spanish, to describe something that you like you will use the verb gustar. You will begin with 'me gusta' , showing that the indirect object or the individual it appeals to is you personally. 'Me' is the indirect object, meaning 'I'. You are stating "I like to dance', so the statement will begin with "Me gusta'. You will then add the infinitive verb for dance because the verb for 'gustar' is already conjugated. The verb for dance in Spanish is 'bailar'. You translated statement is now 'Me gusta bailar.'

Frank rode his bike 5 miles to the grocery store. He then rode an additional 7 miles to his aunt's house to deliver her groceries. How many miles did Frank ride in all?
Looking at the word problem above, we know this is an addition problem because of the key word 'all' that is present at the end of the problem. 'All' is usually a giveaway and shows us that we will be combing or adding the amounts that are given. The first statement in our word problem mentions that Frank rode his bike 5 miles. This is the amount that we will start out with. The second statement in our word problems mentions that he rode an additional 7 miles, so we will be adding this amount to the first amount. If we begin with 5, we will count 7 more from 5. Our answer will be 12 miles after adding both of those amounts together.

Why is supporting the child's native language so important for language development?
Supporting the child's native language both at home and at school is a necessary step in their overall language development. By supporting their first language, they are able to continue to develop their speaking, reading, and writing abilities in the language they are most proficient in and obtain the skills they need to help them learn the new language. Supporting their first language also supports their cultural identity and personal growth.
