The Spanish curriculum is base on the five C's from the

National Standard for Foreign Language Education.

These are: Communication, Cultures, Connections,

Comparisons, and Communities.

At St. Christopher School, we also incorporate elements

of the Catholic faith tradition in order to provide a comparison

between cultures.

The curiculum is designed to give the student a fundation of

the Spanish language for further study.



Songs, games, books, prayers and a lot of hands on activities in English and Spanish.

Repetition and fun are the key words.


Introduction to the use of iPads for Spanish games. Introducing puntuation marks and grammar for Spanish.

A workbook is use during class. Traditional games, prayers, cultural activities, participation in Mass.

The kids are working in groups and taking the role of the teacher to practice conversational Spanish.


The students are going to have a letter grade from third grade up. Refer to students/parents handbook, pages 26-27.

The worbook counts as part of the grade. This can be use as part of classwork, a quiz, and/or homework. Supplemental

material is provided to assist the student.

Projects are done in the classroom. Quizlet is use to review the material for the test. iPads are use in the classroom to

assist with projects and to play Spanish games.

From Virgin Mary visiting the classrooms, to the kids saying the Hail Mary in Spanish in the intercom, to the creation of a new word/treat in Spanish; what a great moth May was!

Faith from 5V, created a new word in Spanish. She combined the first two letters of the word manzana with the last two letters of the world piña and here it is! We have a new word, ¡MAÑA! Faith also have the idea of making this into a treat to share with her classmates.  ¡DELICIOSO MAÑA!

We started to play the game Clue in Spanish. I modify the game in order to accommodate the setting to the school. So far the kids love it!

We are going outside during Spanish classes. The weather is great to work on the workbook. Also to play Spanish games. The cat and the mouse is one of their favorites.

Finally sixth grade, ¡HASTA PRONTO MUCHACHOS!  I am not going to say good bye because I know I will see all of you again. This is my daughter's class.

To all of you, good luck!

Señora B.
