Why a Book Club?
This may seem intimidating, but we’ll walk you through every step.
Reading a book is a very effective way of teaching and learning. There’s a reason instructors have been doing it so long. The books we select for story time are similar in theme to what we’ve done in the group classes, so the children can connect with the content learned during the week. It also provides a review of previously covered material as books selected are multilayered thematically speaking (one book can talk about colors and numbers, for example). Equally important, children can be exposed to a diversity of Spanish expressions and cultures through the stories and origins of the authors, making their education more multi-faceted.
Session & Class Lengths
Sessions are 6 weeks long and include one 45-minute class each week with a maximum of 10 students per class. Each session will focus on a couple of thematic concepts (i.e. colors, greetings, shapes, etc). A Spanish speaking country will be featured each session and important facts about that country’s history, art, music, and traditions will be included in the weekly classes. Each student will receive a “Passport” that will be stamped with the featured country’s flag at the end of the session. In addition, we will hold an end of session party and recital on week 6. Students may invite their loved ones to come watch them sing and dance en Español.
*The sessions offered throughout the year will focus on a variety of themes to ensure your child continues progressing in their exposure to new material and vocabulary.
The registration package will include: a Viva! Kids passport, a toolkit with handouts that provide fun ways to implement material learned in class and tips on how to incorporate Spanish at home daily.View Upcoming Classes
