¡Bienvenidos! Welcome to Spanish! This in-person class will introduce this beautiful language to our youngest students using songs, games, stories, and show & tell activities. We’ll focus on simple conversation and vocabulary, as well as learning about the culture of the many parts of the world where Spanish is a primary language (including the US!) Safety permitting, we’ll learn about typical foods and even enjoy visits from native speakers.

Let’s Read, Learn, and Play together! In this unique mixed ages and skill leveled class, students get twice the fun to focus on their reading skills with Miss Angelia and Miss Julie. Whether online or in-person, this class is designed to begin with mixed group time before breaking out for individual skill leveled learning. Beginner readers work with Miss Julie using a variety of early readers, videos, and games to grow and strengthen their phonemic awareness, sight word recognition, and simple sentence and paragraph reading fluidity. Intermediate readers work with Miss Angelia on a variety of poetry and short stories. Literary analysis centers on setting, inferences, comparing and contrasting, characters, theme, cause and effect, predictions, point of view, conflict, and resolutions. We choose books depending on their online availability and the composition of the class.

In this class, we will be exploring the classic elements of storytelling and gradually building our own short narratives through both drawings and written words. Some other works will be studied and analyzed, including short stories, poems, comics, and essays.  This class will function both in-person and remotely through zoom and emailed reading materials. When done remotely, the class will shift focus to shorter form writing as opposed to longer-term story-building projects.  Spelling and grammar will not be emphasized in this class, the focus will instead be on conveying ideas through stylized writing and drawing.  

1 hr. Tuesdays On Campus
1:00pm - 2:00pm

Students listen to read aloud, learn reading comprehension and relevant vocabulary development for the in-class readings. In addition to in-class reading, students will pick out one book to read at home on their own (or with their grownups, or on audiobooks) for the whole semester that will culminate in a final book project. In-class books will be a range of fiction, poetry, and nonfiction; molding to the interests and leads of the students in the class.
