Spanish Students Increase Bilingualism At Local Preschool
Jennifer Edenfield’s Spanish II classes recently completed a project that reached out to help a local preschool, Emmanuel Childcare Center, in Monroe. This facility is currently working on getting state certified “stars,” which requires accommodations for Spanish-speaking children attending the preschool.
All students in Mrs. Edenfield’s classes made Spanish labels for items that are located in the preschool classrooms. The labels were created for children between the ages of six weeks and twelve years old. Each student chose an age group, researched what that age group would have in its classroom and created a list of those materials. “It made me feel really good to use what I am learning to reach out to the community,” said sophomore Kirsten Hocking.
