Pre-K Manipulates the Spanish Language: Multisensorial Spanish Centers.

My students need manipulatives to support their acquisition of the Spanish language through multiple senses.

My Students

Students in our school come from varied background experiences. Our school is a Pre-K academy that hosts all the early childhood students from our district. Our enrollment accounts currently for 386 students from which 317 receive free lunch. From the student population, 68.91% are African American, 26.17 percent are Latinos or Hispanics, 2.33 percent of two or more races, 1.81% are White, .52% are American Indian or Alaska Natives and .26% Asian.

We are thriving to have a bi-literate and pluri-cultural awareness alongside with the General Education, ESL and STEM programs.

Our school hosts the Bilingual Programs (One and Two way Dual Language), English as a Second Language as well General Education. All students benefit from our Spanish LOTE (Languages other than English) program which includes 50 minutes of Spanish instruction on a weekly basis.

My Project

Current evidence-based teaching strategies stress the importance of providing learning opportunities for students to manipulate academic concepts through multiple senses. Learning a foreign language demands opportunity that are mostly pictorial in order for students to utilize context when learning new vocabulary in the target language.

These learning centers will provide multiple opportunities for students in our early childhood academy to master skills such as fine motor abilities by utilizing the Peg Lacing & Building Toys for Kids, personal care with the Montessori Material Early Learning Basic Life Skills Learn to Dress Boards, prewriting development will be achieved using the Learning Resources Twisty Droppers, Scoopers and the Learning Resources Gator Grabber Tweezers ; prereading and reading skills will be met by using the cylinders sound boxes for sound discrimination skills and opportunities to handle language when using the Attractivia Magnetic Alphabet Flash Cards and Alphabet Sandpaper, eventually the alphabetic book sets and phonetic reading blocks; math skills will be mastered by using an EVINIS Baby Toy Wooden Blocks Montessori Educational Toys Mathematical Intelligence Stick Building Blocks gift-Wooden Number Cards and Counting Rods, the Zerowin Wooden Toys Hundred Board Montessori 1-100 Consecutive Numbers Wooden Educational Game for Kids and the Melissa & Doug Add & Subtract Abacus in order to process math knowledge starting from from the concrete to the abstract.

The best part of using these in the classroom is that these materials will also serve special needs student objectives involving multiple senses while learning abstract academic concept and skills. Having materials ready for use also facilitates lesson planning such as for letter instruction for reading and writing, several math concepts such as counting and simple additions and subtractions because these are already prepared for students to use through multiple senses by manipulating either kinesthetically with their hands, visually and auditory.
