Spanish Immersion ages 7 - 11 Beginners

Description

Activity Description

If your child knows some words and understands some phrases, this is a good level. If your child knows nothing, this is a good level. All beginners. Your child will be unmuted the entire class and interacting as if we were in person - we even get up, stand up and move around quite a bit to keep everyone on their toes (literally)! We will speak mainly in Spanish, but no one will ever be confused for too long - just like how your children learned English, you did not translate, and eventually they figured it out. We will do this through showing, expressions, pictures, telling stories and more. With over 1000 clients who have improved their Spanish fluency, our method is spot on!

 

THIS CLASS IS SET UP IN A WAY THAT YOU CAN JOIN AT ANY TIME. IMMERSION IS TAUGHT BY THEMES, AND SO WE WILL DISCUSS A SPECIFIC THEME EVERY CLASS. PLEASE JOIN FOR 2-3 SESSIONS TO SEE WHAT IT IS LIKE, AS EVERY CLASS HAS DIFFERENT ACTIVITIES USING DIFFERENT CONVERSATIONAL PHRASES. When you continue classes with us (more than 3), we will give you FREE access to our worksheets, videos, computer games, crafts in Spanish, and more. 

 

We use The Bellieu Method for fluency, our trademarked method for acquiring a second language, which upholds songs, singing, dancing, getting them moving to express what they're saying, speaking (when they're ready - everyone has a different speed), relevant material that is useful for everyday life, topics based on the kids attending the class, and letting the student be the focus of the class for ultimate engagement. We are not a 1, 2, 3, red, green, blue type of Spanish class. We teach RELEVANT words used DAILY, for TRUFLUENCY. 

 

Conversation level will be adjusted depending on the level of each student or the group as a whole. Conversation will also be geared towards the interests of the students in this small class. We meet your student exactly where he or she is. 

What will they learn or talk about?


In every TruFluency Kids Spanish Immersion class, we have 2-3 themes that we touch on (for example traveling, animals, hobbies, what you like to eat, etc). During the discussion of these themes, we will focus on being able to express ourselves in Spanish in regards to this theme. We will always encourage speaking, while also increasing listening comprehension, reading and writing in Spanish. Activities in class include, but not limited to: learning songs, singing, ear training to hear Spanish clearly and pronounce it correctly (yet everyone goes at their own speed). Every class includes an activity such as reading a story, playing a word game, creating a song game with our voices in Spanish, or even a computer game to keep the environment immersive. 


While the focus is always on listening/speaking, since that is how children learn language first (and most successfully), we also incorporate writing and quick spelling exercises (but limited, as this is learned later).


Singing is incorporated into every class. 


Week 1 (Lesson 1-3 of Primavera Curriculum) Focus on the Theme of Primavera 

- We will learn a themed song and the components of the sentences, vocabulary and sounds of the language - we will focus on pronunciation and fluidity of sound- Begin to familiarize them with how to say various theme appropriate vocabulary, through a rotation of 3 words at a time, activity, “quiz” through a game. 

- Intermittently throughout each class, we will have a movement break that focuses on movement words in Spanish (that lets us get up and movin’!)

- Do various games with missing words, lyrics of a new song, computer games, crossword, 'what do you see? picture find, drawing activity and relating words game and speaking question/answer activities with colorful slides and interesting/relevant discussions about spring and spring activities or vocabulary

Week 2 (Lesson 4-6 of Primavera Curriculum) 

- Continue with Primavera theme, song, lyrics, vocabulary - all learned with images, actions, get up and move activities, songs, and games. Focus is on the verbs in the song and how to use them in context.

- Read a story about the kids in the songs. 


Week 3 (Lesson 7-9 of Primavera Curriculum) 

- Read the story again with questions 

- Begin to be able to not only understand the short story, but also respond to questions about the characters and their families (who, what, where, when, why, etc). Learning critical words! We will utilize our trademarked Bellieu Method in class to encourage second language acquisition listening and ear training through our question/answer storytelling method. 

- As always, intermittent movement breaks with silly songs to ensure they are having FUN.


Week 4 (Lesson 10-12 of Primavera)

- Craft activity will be done in class to allow kids to do while listening and following instructions in Spanish. Since instructor will be showing them, all instructions will be easily understood. 

- Play BINGO using Primavera vocabulary and review various games from last week to solidify the vocabulary


- We will ask each other questions and relate stories about spring the best we can with words known. Teacher will facilitate using gestures and mimics. 


We will tell you what words and phrases you can practice with your child each week. You will also get access to all of our videos, cartoons, worksheets, crafts and more (if you want to watch them at home).


Sometimes you will need paper and colors, or colored pencils. We will let you know a few days before class.
