Kindergarten Spanish is designed to introduce students to a different language and culture with fun activities, songs and games. Vocabulary such as numbers, colors, greetings and days of the week are taught while establishing routines so students can learn classroom directions and phrases.

2nd Grade Overview
Second grade Spanish reviews vocabulary from Kindergarten and First grade and teaches more vocabulary and culture with songs, games, rhymes and other activities designed to make learning a language fun. Students will continue to sing some of the songs and will begin to use games to practice what they've learned in class.
3rd Grade Overview
Third grade Spanish puts an emphasis on conversation, using vocabulary learned in previous years to ask and answer questions used in everyday Spanish. We will also cover some of the culture and geography of Spanish-speaking countries. Students will still sing songs to help them remember vocabulary and will use activities and games to reinforce the new material.
