After School

Spanish Schoolhouse After School Program

Program Overview

After School Spanish classes are offered once or twice weekly for elementary-aged students (K-5). Taught in a full Spanish immersion format, these classes are the perfect way for Spanish Schoolhouse graduates to continue their Spanish learning! New students are also welcome to join. Each class is 1.5 hours and engages students in Spanish conversation and hands-on activities through weekly themes.

The class is offered in the spring and fall semesters and each semester is 12 weeks in length.

Activities

Each week, our theme will guide our activities. Your child will learn through activities such as:

  • Stories
  • Spanish songs
  • Games
  • Cultural activities
  • Written worksheets/workbooks

After School FAQs

Yes! Our after-school program is an active, hands-on learning environment, where all students can join in the fun, regardless of their level of Spanish. Because it is an immersion class, our teachers dramatize and "act out" what they are saying, and use visual materials as cues. This helps ensure that students understand without translating.

Students may enroll for one or two classes per week. Each week has a theme and the two class days will have different activities based on the same theme. Students who attend both days will have extra reinforcement and practice without direct repetition. Each theme include common vocabulary, verbs, and phrases. Conversation and whole language are emphasized!

Class activities include reading stories, acting out plays, participating in games and contests, singing Spanish songs, and more. A smaller, but important, portion of the class is based on reading and writing workbook exercises.

If a student attends one day per week, the option to attend a make-up class on an alternate day may be possible, provided there is space in the class. If the student attends two days per week, unfortunately, there is no way to make up missed classes. If class is canceled due to inclement weather, a make-up day will be offered.

We are fortunate to live in a state where there are many opportunities for exposure to the Spanish language. Look for Spanish story times and activities at local libraries, try children's programming on Spanish television networks, attend cultural events in the community, or explore the wide variety of Spanish learning websites and apps. See our Resources page for more ideas.
