Our Spanish program starts in Kindergarten and continues through Eighth grade. K-4 Spanish meets weekly and enjoys singing, reading Spanish stories, and learning about Hispanic culture. Our Fifth and Sixth grade classes meet twice weekly. Emphasis shifts toward a more academic class, acquiring vocabulary, celebrating Hispanic culture and theme-based chapters in our textbook “Exploring Spanish”.
Seventh and eighth grade Spanish continues to build student’s vocabulary and conversation skills .We celebrate ”Dia de los Muertos” and “Cinco de Mayo” with fiestas and have a “tienda” (store) where students can spend their ”pesos” earned in class. Students who have participated in four years of middle school Spanish at Trinity have the advantage of “testing out” of a whole year of high school Spanish and will begin high school in second-year Spanish.
