Spanish in LS-Elementary is interdisciplinary, with frequent collaborations with subjects such as math and art that help bring the language to life. Third graders begin to discover grammatical patterns and foundational vocabulary, including the days of the week, body parts, animals and common Spanish nouns. Fourth grade builds on this foundation, reviewing nouns and numbers and adding to their vocabulary with themes such as parts of the face, shapes and food. Fifth graders focus heavily on verbs, as well as tools for practical communication in Spanish. Frequent interdisciplinary projects might include the creation of black-and-white films in Spanish, or a collaboration with the woodshop/design class.
