Todos Juntos is an introduction to Spanish language and culture designed specifically for preschool-age children. Language acquisition is natural and fun for young children, and they delight in sharing their new knowledge and skills with family and friends.
During each ten-week session, children and their caregivers will explore the Spanish language through songs and music, rhymes, games, stories, crafts, and other age-appropriate activities. Children will also learn about Spanish and Latin cultures: the customs and traditions children in Spanish-speaking cultures enjoy.
Topics covered will include colors, numbers, animals, body parts, food, clothing, weather, greetings, feelings, and many more. These topics will be explored continuously throughout each session, allowing children many opportunities to practice their learning and to integrate new knowledge into various activities. Children will feel a great sense of accomplishment as they begin recognizing and using Spanish in their daily lives!
