Every student, K-5th grade, attends Spanish once a week as part of their Academic Specials Program.

Students will learn to ask and answer the following questions using the Spanish vocabulary they learn:

Who?  What?  Where?  When?  How?  How much?

The Spanish units they study include:

Family, Animals of the World, Body, Clothing,

Food, House and School

The following are incorporated into each class practice:

Numbers, Calendar, Weather, Feelings, Colors,

Prepositions and Adjectives

The cultural exposure this year will be:

Music, Art, Dance, Celebration, and Food

The students will also have a passport to complete by learning about the Spanish-speaking countries of the world.

Verb practice will be included in the conversational dynamic of our class.  The classes include music and chants to help students remember the more complex grammatical phrases.  Activities are designed to engage all willing students.  We play many games to encourage more comprehension and retention of vocabulary.

Classes begin with a small amount of Spanish and build up to being presented only in Spanish.  As the students learn the questions and responses and become confident in using the language to communicate with their peers, they will speak only Spanish in class.
