World Languages

As we study different cultures and traditions throughout the year, we introduce vocabulary from other languages.  Students are invited to teach their classmates about their heritage, culture, and any special words they may use with their extended family.  In this way we learn from one another, celebrating our classmates as leaders, teachers, and collaborators in learning.

Each week, kindergarten students also spend 20 minutes with Simone Ahlborn, exploring Spanish language, culture with games, fun/educational celebrations, and activities. They learn basic vocabulary such as greetings, introductions, colors, and numbers through songs, role play, stories and mime/gestures.
