The competition has been fast and furious so far, and we’ve got the first update on who’s in the lead! We’ve ranked the top 20 classes in each grade band*, and we’re astounded at all the learning that’s happening right now. There are still more than two weeks left in the contest, which means you’ve got time to make sure you win that pizza party.

There are over 7,000 languages spoken in the world today, and over 300 of those are spoken in the U.S., so chances are your students speak some of them.

But rather than think of your classroom as a Tower of Babel, you can celebrate and recognize your students’ linguistic heritage while still moving towards English proficiency.
