We’ve ended the year in Spanish with so many exciting things happening on all levels! This has been a wonderful journey through some challenges of returning to school during a pandemic, and some incredible growth worth celebrating! I am so grateful to have experienced all of this with the Fraser Woods Community. Throughout the summer, I strongly encourage children to maintain exposure to the language, so that the transition back to school is a seamless one. Remember, if you don’t use it, you lose it! Here are some recommendations for continuing exposure to Spanish through the summer:
- Primary: Read alouds on YouTube and songs by Super Simple Español can reinforce what we have learned so far (colors, shapes, numbers, animals, body parts).
- Lower Elementary: Read alouds on YouTube and songs by Super Simple Español, directed drawing videos, podcasts or audiobooks, word searches.
- Upper Elementary: Read alouds on YouTube, directed drawing videos, podcasts or audiobooks. Students will also be bringing home a year’s worth of Scholastic’s ¿Qué Tal? Magazine and they have access to the eBook platform Flangoo through June 30th.
- Middle School: Read alouds on YouTube, directed drawing videos, podcasts or audiobooks. They have access to the eBook platform Flangoo through June 30th. There are also age-appropriate shows on Netflix in Spanish.
