Utilizing New Language Skills

In an effort to help students build multilingual skills, fifth-graders at both Academy Street and Blue Point elementary schools were recently visited by Bayport-Blue Point High School juniors in the college level Spanish class and seniors from the Advanced Placement Spanish program for a “Cultural Breakfast and Book Exchange,” an initiative sponsored by the SEED program.

Throughout the course of the event, the high school students presented the fifth graders with books that they created in their classes, in an effort to discuss fun facts and converse in the Spanish language amongst each other. Additionally, a large feast was prepared for the students, and they were asked to place their order for such items as empanadas and mango nectar while using their newly adopted language skills.
