students understand By CRAIG HAMMETT Staff Writer E HeraldZeitung photo by CRAIG HAMMETT Memorial students in Ginny Brookes class paint art HeraldZeitung photo by CRAIG HAMMETT Students painted with a slide show featuring the works of Claude Monet and Mary Cassatt The students must idenify horizontal and ver tical lines cho With that phrase the students of Ginny Brookes first grade class at Memorial Pri mary respond What may be different from many classes is that the students respond in English or Spanish More importantly they understand This class is one of several at Memorial that features bilingual education These are not language classes Students leam all the subjects reading mathematics and in doing so learn different languages at the same time There is such a misconception about the bilingual said Ms Brooke who has been in the NBISD since 1980 People think it something terrible when they first hear of it that their children will be is so pleasing to me When children leave here they can read in two languages for the rest of their This particular class has two students who speak mostly Spanish about eight who are truly bilingual and eight more who speak mainly English By the end of year the goal is to progress in the basic subjects and learn two languages along the way Ms Brooke shuffles between two languages so easily it is hard to notice after awhile The children follow on all commands On this day they use the example of Columbus cross ing the ocean for mathematics Each child are given fishshapdd crackers Columbus catches five fish and eats one which the children do as well Five take away one is respond the children Cinco menos uno es Echo me Cinco menos uno es The children shift to painting with a slide show fea turing the works of Claude Monet and Mary Cassatt The children must identify horizontal and vertical lines and other shapes in the paintings before they can masterpieces of their own with water colors How do these paintings make you feel said Ms Brooke Exhilarated says Telma Rodriguez who can speak both languages even though she comes from a mainly Spanishspeaking home Ms Brooke prefers the stu dents use words other than a The children must emphasize their paintings and give a title to each just like the masters and the must explain so to their teacher Is drawing ydur favorite thing asked the visitor while children painted to the music of composer Franz Schubert said April Asher who portrayed helping her sister Kelsey as the emphasis of her work Then what is she said as the visitor stood corrected During classtime children constantly take their books into the hall where volunteers help monitor the progress of their reading skills Ms Brooke said one child taught himself to read in two languages before he entered school and now is a gradelevel above in both The visitor leaves the classroom as the children say Thank Echo me Gracias For news advertising or subscription information call 6259144 Metro 6060846
