This course is intended to engage intermediate students as they build their ability to understand, develop vocabulary, confidence and love for the Spanish language. Children will be immersed in the Spanish language through total physical response and accessible hands on and movement based activities that maximize comprehensible input. In addition, students will enjoy interactive read alouds, poems and art activities that link to these contexts and allow for creativity while encouraging verbal rehearsal of Spanish as a new language.

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!
