Such a proud mom.
Hannah is now reading and writing in Spanish
Last year at the age of 7 Hannah's Elementary School asked me if I would like to enroll her in the Spanish/English Dual language program, at first I was very apprehensive, as they teach 3 days a week in Spanish only and 2 days a week in English only. I was so worried that she would get very behind in Math (She is in gifted and talented advanced math) and Reading. But just the opposite happened, she actually doubled her reading level and she continued to keep all of her grades high. It turns out that when you open the part of your brain that processes new languages you get all sort of new neurons growing and firing off! I'm so proud of Hannah, last year she only understood some words, but this year, at age 8 she is writing and reading Spanish, when she reads out loud in Spanish I swear that tears come to my eyes. I'm such a big baby.
Here's Hannah before school today... She's my Angel! I'm a very proud mom!
