Help My Spanish Students Escuchar y Aprender!

My students need Spanish listening centers as well as headphones they can use, and dry erase boards are a fun way to help facilitate writing in the target language.

My Students

Imagine being given the opportunity to learn a second language at a young age. My Pre-K through 7th graders are excited about learning Spanish, and I intend to keep hold of their interest! Fun, hands-on activities and centers will do just that!

My students are extremely diverse in every aspect.

I teach a wide variety of ages along with a wide variety of cultures. Our school literally has children from all over the world. They are really excited and curious about Spanish and are very easily motivated.

My Project

Being able to set up a listening center would be amazing. This would be an amazing way for my students to hear and understand Spanish in a fun and different way. Using dry erase boards is always a fun privilege for students. What a great way to practice spelling and writing Spanish vocabulary!

As an elementary Spanish teacher, I can give my students a great opportunity to learn a second language at such a young age.

Please help me make the learning process fun for these children!
