Sing ‘n Speak Spanish is a complete K-8 Spanish Elementary Curriculum…
… going beyond many elementary and middle school curricula.
Variety is the spice of our Spanish curriculum. We introduce vocabulary with colorful humorous visual aids coupled with gestures as we build sentences and teach catchy songs. Then we sprinkle the class with loads of humor, interactive puppetry (Years 1 & 2), role-play and reading (Years 3 – 5), and many games and activities to make it fun. And we always reinforce earlier vocabulary as we teach new vocabulary. To view examples of live Sing ‘n Speak Spanish classes, go to www.singandspeakspanish.com.
