Spanish Language instruction at Aspen Academy fosters a love of learning as students acquire a second language. Using the TPRS (Total Proficiency through Reading and Storytelling) method, students learn a broad conversational base of the language. Students act out stories to demonstrate understanding while expressing themselves physically.
Pre-Kindergarteners focus on the following vocabulary development:
- Secondary colors
- Body parts
- Numbers (1-30)
- Basic transportation conversation
- Months of the year
- Four seasons
Students also develop an awareness of other cultures’ holidays and celebrations.
