Advanced Spanish

Kid · Learning
This course is intended to engage advanced students who understand spoken language so that they can expand their vocabulary and speak Spanish in complete sentences with confidence. Children will be immersed in the Spanish language through interactive read alouds, games that support oral language development, total physical response and accessible hands on and movement based activities that maximize comprehensible input. In addition, students will have the opportunity to practice their speaking voices in Spanish through virtual social interaction and creative expression.

Supplies: Please bring a large t shirt, two socks, recycled materials (boxes, tubes etc) and art supplies (crayons, paper, pencils, tape, glue etc).

Parents, please make sure your child has art/paper/recycled materials at easy reach. In addition, children will be participating in a scavenger hunt during which they will get up and look for the items listed below. To clarify, students should NOT have these items in front of them, but should be allowed to get up and access them from spaces in their home. Thank you!
