Have you been looking for ways to mix up your after-school programs and extracurricular activities at your school?
With cold winter weather, students are spending more time indoors, and they need something fun and engaging to do!
Why not include a foreign language like a Spanish after school program as an option?
Benefits of Spanish Language Learning
To make the decision to include Spanish as an after-school or extracurricular offering is not one that comes easy!
At Sarah’s Spanish School, we provide a ready-to-go curriculum that is completely customizable to your needs! And the best part? We do all of the lesson planning so your school can sit back, relax, and enjoy the benefits of an engaging curriculum designed with up-to-date research practices!
Are you worried that the facilitator of the after-school program doesn’t speak Spanish? No worries! Our program is designed to ensure that any facilitator can easily implement and support instruction starting on day 1!
Once you make the decision to include Spanish as an after-school or extracurricular offering, your students will start their immersion into Spanish culture and instantly begin to see the benefits of learning a second language! Here are just a few of the benefits that you can expect your students to gain from participating in Sarah’s Spanish School:
Cognitive Development: Early exposure to a second language, such as Spanish, enhances cognitive abilities. It boosts problem-solving skills, creativity, and critical thinking in young children, which are transferable to all areas of academics!
Improved Academic Performance: Learning a second language has been linked to improved performance in other subjects, including math and reading. Students who study a world language tend to excel in standardized tests and develop stronger study habits!
Cultural Awareness: Language learning fosters cultural understanding and global awareness. It encourages students to appreciate and respect diverse cultures!
Enhanced Communication Skills: Learning Spanish helps students become effective communicators in both their first language and Spanish. This skill set is essential for success in future personal and professional contexts.
Preparation for a Multilingual World: We live in a multilingual world where the ability to communicate across languages is a valuable skill! Learning Spanish equips students to thrive in a globalized society.
Our Spanish After School Programs
Our curriculum is tailored to meet your school’s needs. Are you looking for an after-school option that meets once a week for one hour? Are you looking for a Spanish program that you can include in classes that meet twice a week for 20 minutes? Do you prefer synchronous classes or asynchronous classes for children? Whatever your school’s needs are, we are here to help!
We offer programs for students in kindergarten, elementary schools, and middle schools, covering grades K-8. Our Spanish classes are designed to engage young learners at every stage, from the very first steps in kindergarten to the more advanced levels in middle school.
In our virtual Spanish classes, we include up-to-date best practices of second language acquisition that make acquiring a second language effective, engaging, enjoyable, and fun! In our classes, you’ll find students laughing, singing songs, dancing, cooking, creating crafts, learning stories, and playing games—all while immersing themselves in the Spanish language and culture!
What resources and support will be provided to educators and students for successful implementation?
We provide complete support to facilitators, including Spanish teacher training, a customized scope and sequence, all materials and resources, video lessons, a personal online portal, emergency support, ongoing guidance throughout the school year, and more!
Can our school customize the Spanish language learning program to align with our specific goals and scheduling needs?
Absolutely! Our programs are designed to be flexible and adaptable to meet the unique requirements of each school district. Whether you prefer after-school clubs, enrichment offerings, full courses, immersion programs or anything in between, we can tailor the program to fit your needs.
How can we engage parents and the broader school community in supporting Spanish language learning for our students?
We encourage parental involvement by providing resources for at-home support. Sarah’s Spanish School offers free monthly courses that students can do at home with their families! We also offer home-schooled options that parents may be interested in. Contact us today to learn more about this option!
