Area Students Become Global Kids
MARCH 24, 2006--Several area elementary children have completed a 16-week
study of foreign language and culture at UW- River Falls. Through the
use of games, songs and other hands-on activities, children from River
Falls, Ellsworth, Prescott and Hudson spent eight weeks in fall and eight
weeks this winter learning German, Chinese and Spanish as part of the
UW-RF Global Kids Program.
Global Kids classes were held for 45 minutes after school one day a week
and were generally divided by grade levels K-2 and 3-5. German had an
enrollment of 11 students grades K-5, Spanish had an enrollment of 16
students in grades K-5 and Chinese had an enrollment of six students in
Each class was taught somewhat differently, but the reactions from the
children and their parents have been very positive and many have asked
if the program will continue next year.
Children from Global Kids were eligible to participate as the students
for a student teaching experience that UWRF Modern Language students will
be conducting for the next five weeks.
