The Children’s House Spanish Program aims for children to have fun while learning Spanish in various ways. Our long term goal is for all of our students to embrace language learning and to appreciate its role in multicultural understanding.
The Children’s House Spanish Program exposes students in Spanish during their routine classroom activities so that they increase their understanding by listening. In our Children’s House full time classrooms, one of the teachers models Spanish speaking and welcomes Spanish conversations when the children are ready. Additionally, children have Spanish lessons at circle. Children enjoy stories, songs, and games from Spanish-speaking countries. Some of these Spanish activities are practiced during the week to reinforce Spanish vocabulary and to boost the children’s confidence.
We also promote an appreciation of the diverse cultures of Spain and Latin America in order to widen children’s global perspective.
