Teens to read bilingual stories to kids



December 04, 2005

South Carroll High School students in Spanish II and Child Development classes will participate in a cross-curricular lesson tomorrow.

Spanish students have written bilingual children's stories that they will share with 4-year-old Child Development children.

Sarah Hash, a sophomore in the Child Development program and a Spanish student, is creating a lesson for the preschoolers on "Knowing Your World/Community."

Hash and Spanish teacher Patricia Keenan created a lesson in which the Spanish students, who wrote the storybooks, will be partnered with a small group of 4-year-olds to teach a Spanish word, then to read the story in Spanish and English.

The child development high school students will conduct a follow-up activity with the 4-year-olds that reinforces the Spanish vocabulary and understanding of the story.
