HANDS- ON SPANISH LEARNING !
espaÑOLA Spanish Program for kids offers high-quality Spanish lessons for kids ages 2-7 who want to begin their journey into Spanish as a foreign language.
Your child will have the opportunity to learn Spanish in an age appropriate environment. Children in this age range learn through play, music, and repetition. This program offers activities that will help your child immerse in a new language without even realizing they are learning, all while having lots of fun at the same time.
This program has been structured so children can develop gross and fine motor, speech, social, and sensory skills during class. Each module has a specific purpose and goals for the learner.
Welcome routine – this promotes, in a friendly way, the transition into the Spanish class.
Story time/puppet play - every class we will recreate a small play that kids are familiar with in English, but in Spanish. This will help children with their vocabulary, comprehension, sequencing, and listening with a known story they can easily relate to. Children will develop their creativity and imagination while working on their communication and language skills. By the end of the program, children will be expected to play a role in a small play (in Spanish!).
Dance and music - we will dance to simple songs in Spanish that kids can easily memorize. This part of the program helps children develop gross motor skills and connect sounds with word meaning.
Hands-on activities – cooking simple kid-friendly recipes, art projects, and games in Spanish. In this part of the class each activity will develop creativity, teamwork, turn-taking, and fine motor skills.
Closing routine. Farewells and goodbye song. Prepare them for a transition.
