My Students

My students are ready for a challenge; they are Spanish Immersion students! In our school district, this means they are English-speaking students who are learning Kindergarten standards in the Spanish language! I teach math, literacy, science, social studies, writing and more all in Spanish! At the beginning of the year, these 5 and 6-year-olds come to me knowing minimal Spanish, but by the end of the year, they are reading, speaking, writing and playing all in Spanish! What a feat! I love that my students persevere when language learning is difficult, which is often!

My Project

In order for students to learn Spanish, they need to be able to make connections between what they already know (schema) to the unknown (Spanish). As a Kindergarten Spanish Immersion teacher, I am the source of all my students' input. I am constantly acting and showing them images so they can understand what I'm saying in Spanish. The BBC has created a cartoon to help children learn Spanish called Muzzy. I want to use this cartoon in my classroom as a way to let the show give the children some visual and oral input other than just myself! The show is high interest and the students love it!
