The Purple School inspires children to become/stay bilingual. One way we do this is by giving children the opportunity to earn wristbands. For example, after a child feels confident that he or she has learned the first 25 of The Purple School animals, she/he can request to be tested (during break or right before or after class). If a child can identify all the animals in the target language (with no help or prompting from the teacher), she/he earns a red wristband like this: delete-dongwu.jpg

Each of these cool wristbands features the word "Animals" written in the target language! After a child has passed the red level, he/she can continue to earn orange, yellow, green, blue and purple for each additional 25 animals!
