Fifth-graders get early jump on language learning

February 26, 2008

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Bobbi Blubaugh's fifth-grade class has embarked on una nueva aventura this semester.

Once every four days, the children spend 40 minutes in their first experiences with Spanish education at Fairview Elementary School. That time had been devoted to art class in the first semester.

Now, Senora Migdalia Adams teaches the students basic greetings and questions.

"She basically speaks Spanish the whole class session," Blubaugh said.

The children have been successful in learning the language through context, she said.

Blubaugh said a favorite part of the Spanish curriculum for the children is the semester fiesta with cultural foods.
