Carolina Loyola and Yasumasa Deguchi sit on tiny blue chairs, mimicking the motions their tutor makes as she sings and points alternately to her head, shoulders, knees and toes.The 4-year-old prekindergarten students follow Gabrielle Lawrence's movements, but their faces reveal that they understand little of what she says. Carolina is from Colombia, Yasumasa from Japan. It is their first week at Wellwood $l Elementary School in the Pikesville area of Baltimore County.For these students, English is a second language.

It has the makings of an urban legend. A second-grader is pulled out of her class and asked to race a gym class of about 20 fifth-graders for a little more than 400 meters. The second-grader obliges and wins by about 10 meters. A myth, right? Not when that second-grader is a girl named Elan Hilaire. "It was just a race for everyone to see who was the fastest," recalled Hilaire, now a sophomore at Park. "Since it was a lot of us at the start, I just took off really fast, and that was it. I just kept running."

Most elementary schools offer instructions about how to check out library books. At Wellwood International School, it's explained in seven languages."We have so many families that don't speak English very well, and we wanted all of them to know how to borrow books," says Wellwood librarian Rebekah Kaufman.With students from 38 countries, such practices are commonplace at Wellwood.A third of its 500 children are foreign born. They speak at least a dozen languages. Almost one in five qualifies for extra help in learning to speak English.

Using red chips, the 22 children in Emilie Seck's kindergarten class are learning the concept of more and less. Only instead of more and less, they're using the words plus and moins. Seck is conducting the lesson in French. These pupils at Wellwood International Elementary School in Pikesville - native English speakers except for one boy who speaks Japanese - are enrolled in the school's language immersion program, receiving half their daily instruction in French. The program, one of a handful in Maryland, is persevering despite the intense pressure schools face under the No Child Left Behind Act to produce high scores on tests in English.

"I recommend 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs' by Judi Barrett. I like the character Grandpa and when he was telling a story about a town called Chewandswallow. I also like when he told about the tomato tornado and how it picks up a man in a bathtub. This story is marvelous. You will enjoy it." -- Alisha Wells, Wellwood Elementary "I really like 'Don't Call Me Beanhead!' by Susan Wojciechowski. The story is about a girl with a lot of problems. She has one problem after another. That's what made the book funny.

THE LITTLE GUY sticks his head outside the principal's office door and glances down the hall, as though looking out for the cops. Joanne Blackmore spots him. The little guy's a first-grader here at Wellwood International Elementary School, on Smith Avenue in northwest Baltimore County. Blackmore's the vice principal. For the little guy, this could be considered worse than any cops. "Yes?" Blackmore says. The little guy glances up and up. Blackmore, towering over him, does not cash in on her size advantage.

HAVING READ this month's selection of the Wellwood International Elementary School Book Club, I expected 9- and 10-year-olds to be lost in the book's allegory and symbolism, to be turned off by its adult themes. I was wrong. When I visited the Pikesville public school last week, this eager bunch of fourth- and fifth-graders taught me more about Holes, the novel by Louis Sacher, than I would have dreamed of teaching them. They took me by the hand and led me through the darkly humorous and redemptive tale of Stanley Yelnats (note the palindrome)

"I liked reading 'Amelia Bedelia' by Peggy Parish. First, I liked the action. I liked when she dressed the chicken up. Then she cut the towels up into holes. Second, I liked the ending. I liked when Mrs. Roger was very, very angry. She was getting ready to tell her that she was fired but Mr. Roger put some pie in her mouth and she wasn't angry anymore."- De'von RichardsWellwood International Elementary" 'Dog Breath!: The Horrible Terrible Trouble with Hally Tosis' by Dav Pilkey is my favorite book.
