Spanish Conversations: (all ages) Mrs. JM teaches Spanish on a conversational level. During each lesson, she presents a handful of words and then uses them in basic sentences. This approach opens the door to sentence structure without slowing down the growth of Spanish vocabulary. Mrs. JM uses a chalkboard and breaks words down into their individual sounds to help students learn both proper pronunciation and spelling. Students love seeing what unique pointer Mrs. JM has chosen for each lesson (Harry Potter wand, Mickey Mouse glove, whisk, etc)!
