Elementary Spanish Curriculum? What do I do?

I have heard it many times. “I have only taught middle/high school language, and I am going to be teaching Pre-K …or K-5… or K-8. Someone, help me! What do I do?”

OK, You got this. Take a deep breath. Now let’s talk little learners.

Here is a post I wrote a few years ago about things I have learned from teaching younger students. Little Language Learners – What I have learned

I also have a series of posts on how I build a lesson.

How I plan a K-2 lesson… Building Blocks- TPR

  1. Looking forward to the new units for year one. Love your units so much!! I was wondering when they might be available?

    • ¡Hola Lillian! It had been my plan to have the rest of YEAR ONE done by Thanksgiving but alas life took some crazy twists this past semester. It is looking like March before I finish the last two units for YEAR ONE. So glad to hear that my units have worked for you!
