Spanish Immersion for Beginners 4-6 Years Old

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!


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 of Sept 19 (For teachers: Lesson 1-2 of Otoño Curriculum)

New Topic about the “Fall” 

Listen to the song about the fall. As always, we will pause and sing to help with pronunciation. 

Go over the lyrics slowly (reading only applies for 7+ years old. For younger, we will repeat), reading them with pictures!

We will continue to practice the conversations and get more confident with those. Ask if they like certain things regarding the fall and discuss. 

Play the memory game two times. First level will be an easy game, and then a normal-paced game. 

Work on an extra worksheet (coloring the vocabulary) at home with your kiddos to help tie in the information learned in class. 

Play a computer game (Drag and Match). This game will help reinforce the phrases learned. We will play it over 2-3 classes. Each time the students will have to answer it faster!


Week of Sept 26 (For teachers: Lesson 3-4 of Otoño Curriculum)

- Play the song. Let each student sing the karaoke at the end. Everyone has to do the choreography too!

- Do some fun quizzes with pictures to ensure the phrases are learned. Happy dance (baile feliz) after the quizzes.

- Pictionary Time! The students will take turns drawing on the whiteboard. Everyone else has to guess. The student that guesses correctly first will have a point. (Happy dance again!)

- Continue to practice the short conversations with assistance from the teacher.

- We will give you the link to some fun flashcards with the vocabulary words. Have fun coloring them with your child and practice pronunciation with them. 



Week of Oct 3 (For teachers: Lesson 5-6 of Otoño Curriculum)

Week 11-12 

-Keep on practicing the pronunciation of the vocabulary words via singing and reading. We will focus on helping the kids have fun while improving their pronunciation. 

-Play caras y gestos (charades)! We will make two teams. Each team will choose someone and have 20 seconds to act out 2 types of weather (Leafs fall, birds fly away, I miss the sun, mushrooms grow) and guess them. We will play 5 rounds. The team that scores the most wins! The winning team will do the happy dance!


Week of Oct 10  (For teachers: Lesson 7-8 of Otoño Curriculum)

- Small competitions to engage and encourage kids. 

- Get access to a Spanish craft or worksheet on our website that you can do in the evening or on the weekends.

- Review all topics and games. Repetition and review is critical. We don’t hear a word just one time in order to be able to use it. We must hear it many times.



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.
We will give you access to the videos, crafts, games, worksheets, pdfs, conversation activity pages, songs, lyrics and more.
