Classroom philosophy- We are not here to learn about a language, we are hear to learn to speak a language! How many times do people look back at high school language classes and remember how they learned verb forms but did not learn practical language? In our classroom we speak Spanish! Starting on day 1. Don’t worry, it is all through what we call “comprehensible input!” Comprehensible input is hearing a LOT of Spanish that is easy to comprehend! Just like we all learned to speak English.
There are a lot of resources available for parents interested in what we are doing in the classroom! Watch for a class newsletter on the first day of school and blog posts about what students are up to in Spanish class.
Visit often, your kids are doing great things and I am always so proud to show them off!
