Bienvenidos a la clase de español

In an increasingly interconnected world, the ability to communicate across cultures is not just a skill; it's a gateway to endless opportunities. We're proud to offer a dynamic Spanish program that introduces students to a new and widely spoken language. Spanish at OMPH is offered to our Kindergarteners until they leave as 8th graders. This year I, Señorita Hannah Frymoyer, am a new teacher at OMPH. I am a recent graduate from Millersville University and am currently in a master’s program studying Early Childhood Education. I would love to share what we have been learning so far in the year with each grade level. 

In Kindergarten, the students learn things such as the alphabet, their favorite animals, articles of clothing, the words for family members, etc. They are learning vocabulary words here and there to become familiar with the language as we build on it in the following years. In first grade, the students learn zoo animals, food vocabulary, more family words, school items, places in the school, etc. In second grade, the students learn titles of different grades, and they learn food words, even more family words, etc. They are building on what they previously learned and growing their vocabulary. 

In 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade, they continue to learn more vocabulary words, but they also begin to learn phrases as well as some culture lessons in these grades. When the students move into 6th grade they begin Spanish 1 which is taught in the high school, they will then finish it in 8th grade and test out of Spanish 1 into Spanish 2 going into the high school. 

The lessons are more experiential-based with a strong emphasis on application rather than just memorization. Students play games and do more projects than doing tests in class to try and promote them using the language. In the beginning of the year the 6-8th graders wrote conversations on greetings that they then presented to the rest of the class. I am thankful for the opportunity to teach your students. I am excited to finish the year and see what is in store.
