The Sing ‘n Speak Spanish Curriculum is far reaching…
… going beyond many elementary and middle school curricula.
Year 1 and Year 2 Spanish introduce basic vocabulary and simple grammar on subjects children relate to. Years 3, 4, and 5 review earlier vocabulary and introduce new vocabulary and higher level grammar, with special focus on verbs and conjugation. Vocabulary and grammar from previous lessons are carefully spiraled-in to each lesson.
The table below summarizes the topics covered in Year 1 – Year 5 and the appropriate grade ranges for each. Go to Spanish Teaching Materials and scroll down to view sample lesson plans, student worksheets, and songs for Years 1 – 5.
