Liz Gibbons

Spanish teacher for Pre-K - 8th Grade




Spanish Curriculum

Students in Kindergarten - Eighth Grade attend Spanish class twice per week. 

Pre-K1 - Pre-K4: Mrs. Liz visits the Pre-K classes three times each week to teach students numbers, colors and simple vocabulary words. 

Kindergarten through Second Grade: Spanish for the elementary school student focuses on learning greetings, the names of family members, numbers, colors, animals, classroom items, shapes, household items, and calendar-related subjects. The focus is on correct pronunciation and conversational skills with the goal of establishing a strong base for further academic study. 

Third through Fifth Grade: Students learn greetings, the name of family members, numbers, colors, animals, classroom items, shapes and calendar-related items. There is a focus in learning about history and culture of Spanish-speaking people through activities that introduce different foods, festivals and traditions, with increased focus on correct pronunciation, vocabulary development, conversational and reading skills with the goal of establishing a strong base for further academic study.

Sixth through Eighth Grade: The Spanish curriculum in middle school provides support for the development of oral, written and reading comprehension, as well as introducing students to the history and culture of Spanish-speaking people. The emphasis is on using Spanish in a real context in conversation and genuine situations.  

Middle Schoolers work on a Bienvenido/Welcome sign to display in the hallway! 

The elementary students created "mini people" to practice the names of parts of the body. The middle school students are learning about clothing in Spanish by designing and creating outfits! 

Spanish instruction begins at the Pre-K1 level for our 12 mos. to 24 mos. old children. Below,  PK2 learns how to count in Spanish.  

Kindergarteners love playing the Matching Spanish number game! 

Students learn about Spanish "saludos" or greetings.
