During this time, students practice listening and speaking in Spanish through songs, call-and-response exercises, art, conversation, written work, and interactive games like El Museo. Our Spanish curriculum is based on the "Sonrisas" curriculum for elementary grades.
Jacob Segerhammer has been teaching Spanish at Valley for three years and reports that the most rewarding part of his job is when he observes students gaining the confidence to express themselves in Spanish. Be sure to give him a hearty, ¡Hola! ¿Cómo está, Jacobo?, next time you see him walking around school with his ukulele in hand.
