At our school we have Spanish (first to fifth grade), three times a week for 30 minutes. Understanding is achieved with the help of pictures, actions, gestures and objects. The class is mostly done in Spanish, so that children can start getting comfortable with understanding another language. Learning is achieved through games, songs, projects and role play. For a more detailed description of our program, please watch this presentation. Keep reading below for important information and resources!



SPANISH PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

  • Development of listening and speaking, first.

SPANISH AT HOME

Your child will bring home activities they have done in class to "teach" or practice Spanish with you. Please sign it and send it back to school. There is a variety of resources that you and your child may use to reinforce the Spanish learned at school, by visiting the pages "Actividades" and "Videos". Please sign the paper sent home "Practico español en casa" every time your child does this. Return it t school when it is full.
