Lectores y Amiguitos: Reading and sharing

1 min read

Katie Ferrari (right) from the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) reads with second-grader Alicia Morency from the Amigos School on Putnam Avenue. Ferrari participates in the Lectores y Amiguitos program managed by the Office of School Partnerships and Cambridge School Volunteers. This year, more than 30 HGSE volunteers read weekly in Spanish to students at the Amigos School, a dual immersion bilingual elementary school. Reading aloud and sharing conversation in Spanish give the students an opportunity to practice their Spanish oral language and listening skills.
