Students in Spanish class follow the Diocesan Spanish Curriculum and use appropriate workbooks and textbooks to ensure that students are well- prepared for high school Spanish. In addition to the regular curriculum, students learn grade specific prayers in Spanish and participate in praying the rosary in Spanish. Spanish classes are steeped with knowledge of culture and religious celebrations, music, dance, and fun activities that reinforce the learned curriculum.
Spanish classes are held in St. Joe’s A. A tote box contains materials needed for the day. (Spanish texts, workbooks, folders, a pencil box with all of the necessary tools they will need for class, including a rosary).
Students in Kindergarten are taught through activities and songs which help to develop the required vocabulary as an introduction to Spanish. Students in first through third grade use workbooks to develop a basic Spanish vocabulary. Grades four through eight continue to use “Realidades”, the adopted program at Christ the King School. This program has allowed our students to learn Spanish and prepares them for Spanish at the high school level. Realidades has a computer program which the students can access from home to complete assignments, practice their Spanish, and prepare for Spanish tests.
Students are encouraged to access the Realidades website each week using their computer password, assigned to them in class.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding Spanish and your student’s progress.
