Kindergarten

UPDATE!!! I have published my first unit ME GUSTA. Check it out!

Kindergarteners- Twice a week for 45 minutes

The focus of Spanish class in Kindergarten is using the (Terry Waltz) SUPER SEVEN to talk about their lives, play, sing and tell stories.

The Super Seven

tiene- he/she has
quiere- he/she wants
va a- he/she goes to
le gusta- he/she likes
hay- there is/are
está- he/she feels, he/she is located
es – he/she is

Are these the ONLY words I teach? ¡Claro que NO!

These are the words I target but they allow me to cover any material I might want. With these 7 verbs I can personalize my curriculum to the world of my kindergartners.
