The goal of Spanish for 3rd and 4th grade is to begin to recognize basic/rudimentary vocabulary necessary for effective communication in Spanish. Each year the students build on their skills of recognizing, pronouncing, and spelling a variety of vocabulary terms. Grades 5-8 focus on acquiring more sophisticated vocabulary that is necessary in communicating in Spanish as well as integrating Spanish grammar concepts on a more advanced level. Grades 5-8 use prior knowledge and new content to begin writing sentences and speaking in the target language. Aside from grammar and vocabulary, the students are also exposed to the Hispanic culture and holidays such as Day of the Dead (El d a de los muertos). By the time the students reach the 8th grade, they are able to pray the Glory Be, the Our Father, and the Hail Mary in Spanish!
