The goal of TK–5th Spanish is to instill a love and appreciation of the language, an appreciation for different cultures, and a foundation in the oral and receptive acquisition of the Spanish language. Students will enjoy learning the language through music, games, projects, visual media and interactions with fellow students in the classroom.
