In this class, students will become acquainted with both the Spanish language and culture through literature, music, art, puppets, movement and games. Each year, we focus on a different theme. For the 2020-21 school year, our theme will be "The City." We will learn about different forms of transportation and about various community workers (occupations) in Spanish. To develop vocabulary and conversational skills, we will role-play buying groceries in a store, ordering food in a restaurant, depositing and withdrawing money from the bank, shopping at the mall, working in a hospital and going to the movies, the theatre, the library, the zoo and the airport. Students will have an hour of homework each week which will consist of a song to practice and simple activities to reinforce the vocabulary and skills they are learning in class.
