Class Experience

Wondering how you’re going to help your elementary schooler continue to solidify their Spanish literacy skills, when so much of his/her academic career is dedicated to English? Well, allow us to present to you our Level 2 Foundational Spanish Literacy Class! 


In Level 1, we used music, games, exciting visuals, and hands-on materials to instruct students in the foundational principles of Spanish literacy (vowels, consonants, syllables, simple words.) We also highlighted similarities and differences between English and Spanish writing systems, as understanding the inner workings of their two languages side by side is an invaluable skill for bilingual students. 


In this follow-up class we will pick up where Level 1 left off* and will cover more complex syllables (like consonant blends and diphthongs), words, and phrases. We will also dive deeper into some spelling rules like why don’t you ever see ‘z’ and ‘i’ together? Finally, we’ll encourage our students to pursue reading goals and have each of them share a little bit about the books they’re currently reading and enjoying.


*We left off last session (Level 1) having covered the following letters: A E I O U M P S T N L D B V C F Y H G and Z and the following skills: uppercase/lowercase identification, counting syllables, stretching and blending sounds, reading aloud + pausing, and were just beginning rhymes!


[Recording option is available for this class!]

This class is complete Spanish immersion, the instructor will use Spanish as the language of instruction, except for occasionally highlighting similarities/differences between English and Spanish writing systems. Students do not have to have taken Level 1 with us, but see description for what familiarity they should have coming in.)
