Spanish: K - 3rd Grade

This is a fun and interactive class! I will maintain the hands-on structure by concentrating on oral skills as well as giving homework to reinforce the classroom learning. Through the use of flash cards, the students will begin to read words and learn to classify nouns in male and female according to the article used. Phonics is an important part of the learning process at this level and, for this reason; the students will prepare and present a Spanish speech as a final project.

Supplies Needed: Old magazines from home

Pre-Requisites: None

Class Fee: $225

Supply Fee: $30


Beginner Spanish: 4th - 12th Grade

The students would begin by learning the Spanish alphabet and having words related to each letter.

Intermediate Spanish: 4th - 7th Grade

At this level, the objective is to further develop writing and oral skills using speech and an interactive lesson plan. During the classes, the students will be taught to create recipes, menus, do projects and learn more about the various cultures via “flying around the world” to different Spanish speaking countries. Weekly dictation, composition and reading comprehension will be part of this level. Using technology as well as “old school” skills will help the students to engage in a fun/learning process. Initially, at this level, a comprehensive evaluation would be completed to determine each student’s understanding of Spanish obtained from previous levels.

After this base has been established, a curriculum would be developed to further the student’s learning for oral and writing skills and to complement the student’s comprehension going forward. Vital parts of the daily classroom instruction would include cooking classes, singing songs, reading story books, writing newspaper and magazine articles in Spanish and learning Latino culture. The student’s learning process will be enhanced through the development of monthly learning units that will help them to express themselves properly in Spanish.

Supplies Needed: Old magazines from home.

Pre-Requisites: Completion of beginning Spanish class or equivalent study of Spanish.
