K Spanish


Curriculum- Kindergarten

Students in kindergarten experience immersion in the target language. Highlights include lessons on disappearing ink, vinegar volcanoes, dyed paper, lightning bugs, a real egg whose fate is to be smashed, maps and treasure hunting, and ocean animals. Students also practice writing Spanish sight words at their own differentiated pace, dependent on L1 skills, and are exposed to literacy/the written word on a regular basis.

Sprinkled throughout the year are various Culture Projects; these lessons focus on amazing and beautiful aspects of the Spanish-speaking world (landforms, monuments, traditions, etc.), and knit together the Lower School Spanish experience. Kindergarteners begin to recognize the names and flags of many Spanish-speaking countries through these projects.
