Spanish in Kindergarten

Young children pick up languages very quickly, and learning Spanish is now part of our kindergartners’ regular studies! Once a week, Spanish teacher Jennifer Powell visits each kindergarten class for fun-filled lessons, games and songs that familiarize students with español. This new language-learning initiative is the first to be rolled out in Chatham’s Spanish in elementary school program, which seeks to enrich our youngest students with basic Spanish vocabulary and develop their understanding of and appreciation for other cultures. In coming years, MED Elementary School plans to expand the program into additional grade levels.
