English + Spanish = Great Reading!

First graders are quite remarkable. They grasp new information like a sponge and are so excited to learn that they can read. I encourage teachers to send students that want to show off their reading skills.

Today I was pleasantly surprised to have Moriah and Haylee from Mrs. Bittle's class visit and share a book. It wasn't your average first grade book, but one that contained both English and Spanish. Moriah speaks fluent Spanish...and can also read it very well. So the two girls read both versions and did a wonderful job.

It is times like these that make me LOVE being a principal. Thanks Mrs. Bittle for sharing these two and for doing a super job!
