Foreign Language

The Spanish program at Middlefork School provides students with an introduction to the Spanish language that includes vocabulary, grammar, and culture of Spanish speaking countries. Kindergarten students meet once weekly in 20-minute sessions, while students in grades 1-3 meet three times weekly for 20-minute sessions. Students actively learn and express Spanish through listening, speaking, writing, and reading.

While learning a new language, students explore and gain an appreciation for several aspects of culture within Spanish speaking countries - art, celebrations, cuisine, history, traditions, and geography. Students increase their executive functioning skills when learning a new language. Emphasizing the importance of communication, students are presented with opportunities to apply authentic and realistic language use in the classroom.
