Adult learners from the Dunedin Elementary School ESL Conversation Class participated in the Great American Teach-In on November 14. The learners were parents of students at the school, and they and their teachers read bilingual books in English and Spanish to kindergarten students at the school.
Literacy Council of Upper Pinellas volunteer Susanne Carter brought her precious Beagle, Huck, to celebrate reading at Dunedin Elementary School. Susanne and adult learner Juana enjoyed reading bilingual books in English and Spanish to kindergarten students.
Dunedin has its 17th Little Free Library, thanks to a cooperative project involving the Literacy Council of Upper Pinellas, Dunedin Library Foundation and Dunedin Elementary School. The little library, which is located in front of Dunedin Elementary School, was recently dedicated. LCUP wrote a grant, funded by the Publix Foundation, to stock the library with both English and bilingual books (English and Spanish).
The Little Free Library allows students and residents in the area to take a book, read it, and return it, or place another book in the box for others to read.
Volunteers from LCUP teach an ESL conversation class for parents of students at Dunedin Elementary School on Tuesday mornings.
Here is the schedule for Literacy Council of Upper Pinellas’ Conversation Classes for September, October, November and December. A good way to practice your English skills is to talk to other learners, and these fun sessions are great. You can speak English and learn some new vocabulary and how the English language works. Children are welcome and you can just stop in and see what we do. We look forward to seeing you there.
