The Upper Elementary students presented "Brandon Brown Quiere Un Perro," dramatizing a book they read in their Spanish class throughout the year. Spanish teacher Ms. Lucrecia Paredes directed the fourth and fifth graders. Every student had a speaking role, including some choral numbers. The performance was lauded by a standing-room-only audience of about 70 parents and teachers.
Spanish is taught from the Primary level classroom, starting at age 3 to Middle School. As a child ages up in class levels, their lessons progress from learning new vocabulary to phrases, reading books, and more. The study of foreign languages is shown to increase a person's skills in math (pattern recognition) and English language skills strengthening. We are preparing our students to be global citizens, and foreign languages help expand a person's worldview and reduce communication barriers.
Hudson Montessori School uses an interdisciplinary, theme-based learning approach to education, the Montessori philosophy and methodology, and fosters the love of learning for children aged 2 to eighth grade. For more information about the Upper Elementary Program, please contact us.
