Rehoboth Elementary School recently celebrated the completion of two more family literacy classes for Latino families in the district.
With support from the community and school staff, Khara Bauer and Sue Lore hosted families for seven weeks to increase their skills in both English and Spanish. The class focused on reading bilingual stories to create a culture of reading at home, and enhance Spanish vocabulary for children and English vocabulary for parents.
There also is an English as a Second Language component for parents to practice their English skills in real-life scenarios as well as a family component for families to embrace their culture and relatives.
This year, Rehoboth Elementary’s class teamed with Jennifer Seabrook of University of Delaware to offer families a fourth component of food and nutrition. Food topics covered ranged from new recipes to how to shop on a budget and ways to be healthy.
The district extends congratulations to the participants and their families from both classes.
