Bilingual books donated to Hall County preschoolers
Teacher Militza Torres, left, and assistant Patricia Pagnier introduce their pre-K class to Michael Arteaga on Wednesday afternoon on the former Jones Elementary School campus as Arteaga brings copies of his book “Spanish To English ABC” for students.
A group of preschoolers gather around Michael Arteaga, eager to practice the alphabet in Spanish and in English. Arteaga and his mother, Carrie Woodcock, head of world languages and global initiatives for Hall County Schools, have teamed with University of Georgia professor Misha Cahnmann-Taylor to give every Hall County preschool student a bilingual alphabet book illustrated by Arteaga. Woodstock said the book, titled “Spanish to English ABC” is important because it helps students learn the alphabet by translating words that start with the same letter in both languages.
