All Lower Elementary students have thirty minutes of Spanish class twice per week in the Elementary Spanish room.
In Spanish class, lessons often utilize Montessori materials in order to connect language learning with the familiar activities of students’ home classrooms. We use singing, playing and performing as learning tools, as we aim to integrate movement and the arts in the lessons. The program is enriched with age-appropriate audio/video materials and literature activities. Students are introduced to letter sounds and reading in Spanish at this level, and they learn about many cultural aspects of the Spanish speaking world.
