In this 4 week semester, your children will be part of a Spanish Immersion Program where they will be introduced to basic concepts like animals, colors, numbers and vowels. All of these through the universal language of Music. Each session is fun, active and engaging.
A selection of Children Songs in Spanish guides each class from start to finish. Activities are related to the lyrics, in order to familiarize the children with the words and their meanings. Some of the songs encourage the children to dance. Nilda uses puppets, musical instruments, and props to teach children basic vocabulary through action and interaction, rather than through translation.
The class meets 1 time per week for 4 weeks on Zoom's webinar platform. Participants (children, parents, nannies) are able to join the video from their homes and interact with us in real-time, it is a fun and engaging experience.
If you register for the full semester, you will receive 4 downloadable, illustrated vocabulary guides in PDF format that you can use to reinforce the vocabulary at home. Each guide features one of the songs played in class, with a verse by verse translation and illustrations.
You will also have a link to Cucu's PlayHouse PlayList, where you will find most of the songs played in class.
The following will add to the experience, but are not required. Please feel free to have with you:
- A musical toy like a drum, shaker, any household item that can be used to follow a beat or just your hands to clap :)
- A couple of playsilks, scarves, or any small piece of fabric that can be used to follow along when we use playsilks in the class
- You child's favorite stuffed animal, doll or any other toy friend
