Instructor: Lana Toler
Location: Room 501
Description: Experience Spanish culture like never before with our brand new Middle School Spanish camp! Each day will have a theme including: Market Day, Travel Day, Celebrations Day, and more! Our time will be rich with experiences, physical movement, dance, music, stories, art, games, and culture threaded throughout. Material will be presented from a certified Spanish (Pre-K-12) teacher using comprehensible input, meaning that students will learn Spanish by hearing and receiving new learning through understandable, meaningful contexts, not a traditional vocabulary list. Students will learn to introduce themselves, talk about their likes and dislikes, their families, use travel phrases and practical vocabulary, participate in traditional customs, take virtual tours of Spanish-speaking places, and experience culture in hands-on activities. We will put those worksheets away and make room for a lively, interactive, colorful, and memorable week!
