Class Description

Our Conversational Spanish Immersion classes are designed for students of all levels--for those just starting to learn the concepts of print, for early readers, and also for those students who need a more challenging and rigorous environment.

 

Classes offer students a full immersion, small-group classroom setting that is a fun and play-based (for our younger students). These classes focus primarily on conversational Spanish, although our more rigorous Level 3 classes will include all academic disciplines, plus encourage and focus on students' presentation skills. 

​Our Spanish Immersion classes are taught using a thematic approach, and are designed to include a rich set of developmentally appropriate activities for learning Spanish such as read-alouds, music/songs, poems, games, movement, crafts, visual aids, student presentations, writing journals, and more.  Our teachers focus on introducing new concepts and teach Spanish by relying and building on your child’s current knowledge, by teaching concepts that they’re already familiar with in their native language, by comparing and contrasting vocabulary, and by applying higher order of thinking skills during class. Many of our activities are project-based and incorporate a wide variety of activities and academic skills.  We also differentiate our instruction according to students’ age and level of proficiency, and our goal is to incorporate numerous activities to reach all different learning styles (visual, auditory, kinesthetic).

 

Our in-person and online classes also incorporate the use of technology.   We use learning games such as Kahoot!, Lotería, JeopardyLabs, Quizlet and Blooket to make learning fun and to reinforce classroom concepts. Students are provided with access to online interactive activities via Seesaw so learning can continue at home and outside of class.  Our program’s main goal is to provide as much access to the Spanish language as possible in class as well as outside of class, while still making learning fun and engaging.  

 

Rather than just being able to say a few words in Spanish, our goal is for each child to have fun, develop a deep understanding of the language, and leave class with a desire to learn!

Our in-person and online classes are offered at various levels (view our in-person or online schedule). 

 

Level 1: Suitable for students that are new to our program, have no knowledge of Spanish, and/or are new to the language. 

Level 2: Suitable for students with limited Spanish, and/or have Spanish support at home, and/or have been part of our Level 1 Spanish classes at Nuestra Escuelita. 

Level 3: Suitable for students who can carry a basic conversation in Spanish, and/or have been part of our Level 2 Spanish classes at Nuestra Escuelita.  Students are expected to read and write in Spanish.

(Please feel free to contact us if you have specific questions regarding placement in any of our classes.)

Spanish Immersion Classes (Literacy)

  • In-person Spanish Immersion Classes

    • $99 (1 hr. x 1 day per week)

    • $75 (1 hr. x 1 days per week)

Class Description

Our Spanish Immersion Literacy classes focus primarily on literacy, reading fluency and comprehension. 

 

For our younger age 3-4 students, these classes focus on mastering recognition of the letters of the Spanish alphabet and their matching sounds. Students focus on syllables and distinguishing how they are used in selected words. Vocabulary introduced in class is built on those words selected for the syllables. Teachers also focus on number recognition, number order, and the beginning steps of addition.  

For our older students and those students currently enrolled in a DLI program, our Literacy classes provide students a challenging environment to help build their Spanish literacy skills and continue working on reading, writing, and comprehension.  These classes focus on and incorporate fluency, reading strategies, comprehension skills, as well as higher order of thinking skills.  Our main goal is to challenge students and help them to continue to build fluency in Spanish.   Our curriculum is tailored to our students' needs and we focus on areas of weakness, to help ensure that our DLI students continue to make progress in the language. Students will be assigned a Seesaw account, for assigning and collecting student work.  Teachers will also be able to respond and interact with students via the app. 

 

Requirements:

  • Currently enrolled in a Dual Language Immersion program.  This requirement only applies to our incoming K-3rd grade classes.
