Cultural Lessons * Kindergarten through 8th Grade

 

Learning Spanish can open doors for students to explore the culture found in Spanish-speaking countries around the globe. Just as vocabulary words expand their fluency in the language, lessons based on aspects of Spanish culture expand their minds. Gradually introducing culture into language helps children put words into context.

Adriana M. Amaro, an experienced educator, offers simple lessons that help students discover Spanish culture and language. Activities are designed to mirror the school year, featuring a few holidays and observances each month from back to school to Day of the Dead, New Year’s Eve, Earth Day and Cinco de Mayo. Holidays that don’t happen the same month every year, such as Easter, Hanukkah, or Ramadan also are included, as well as significant places such as Machu Picchu and The Alhambra.

Teachers will find lessons aimed at younger students (kindergarten through fourth grade) and older students (fifth to eighth grade). Studying Spanish music, dance and food adds a playful note to lessons, inviting children to learn about what happens in other parts of the world and in neighborhoods all over the United States.
