Dual Immersion students enjoy high tea

Dual Immersion Academy students Brisheyda Valdez, Mitchelle Gutierrez, and Josue Acevedo enjoy a cup of hot chocolate as part of their class’ authors tea Thursday.

The fourth grade students at the Dual Immersion Academy invited their family and friends to high tea in their classroom Thursday afternoon.

For scholarly entertainment, each of the students presented a PowerPoint presentation discussing some related themes within the various works of author Sandra Cisneros.

Cisneros is best-known for her book, “The House on Mango Street,” which is a coming-of-age story about a young girl growing up in a Latino neighborhood in Chicago. The girl chooses to rise above the standards in her neighborhood and expect more from herself than her culture expected of her.

Teacher Mrs. Rewold said the students also studied the author’s use of personification, similes and other literary prose. All of the reports were given in Spanish only.

Many of the students chose to discuss the differences between boys and girls in their presentations titled, “Ninas y Ninos.” Girls like make-up while boys like video games,” most said, much to the grumbling and booing by the little girls in the class.

Other presentations included a description of Uganda and discussion of different hairstyles.

Many of the reports were written with humor and intellect and were enjoyed by the attending parents.
