Spanish Grades 6, 7, and 8

Required World Language ~ Spanish
     6th grade students will meet once a week for an introduction to Spanish.

     Students in 7th and 8th grade will have Spanish Class every Tuesday and Thursday morning. We are also adding an advanced Spanish program for the 8th grade students this year, with the help and support of some of our wonderful Native Spanish Speaking families. 

      This school year, the Seventh Grade Students will utilize Realidades A Text Book, along with many other materials, to keep the class as exciting as possible. The 8th Grade Students will pilot a new text Autentico. 

      A Spanish/ English Dictionary (hard copy) is highly recommended for home and in class use, as well as a 501 verb book. They are also available at the local King County Library for check out. There are some copies available for use in the classroom.

The Bilingual Brain

Several sources have been publishing information about the benefits of bilingualism over the past 10 years.  It has been proven that students that are bilingual are able to multi-task with greater ease, and accomplish tasks more efficiently in a chaotic environment.  One of the many reasons we have added Spanish to our required curriculum for the Junior High.
