Our Early Childhood students participate in Spanish two times a week. Ms. Desportis incorporates songs, dances and props to make her instruction fun and engaging. Our EC and PK students are learning shapes and colors while our older students are learning about fall.
Through the Middlebury Interactive online Spanish courses, students in Third through Sixth grade focus on the four key areas of language study: listening, speaking, reading and writing. The extensive use of authentic video, audio, images and texts allows for a contextualized and interactive experience with the vocabulary and linguistic structures. Courses actively engage students in completing a variety of activities, practices, tasks and assessments. Cultural information relevant to Hispanic countries and communities, and robust cross-cultural reflections are infused throughout the materials from beginning to end.
