Starting at 9:30 am and ending at 12:30 pm, each day will be divided into two parts: 1 hr. 30 min for Spanish language immersion, where children learn about the country of study: its geography, people, traditions, food, music, and dances, and 1 hr. 30 min. for art, inspired by that particular country.
The children will be immersed in Spanish by singing folk songs, play-acting, art activities, traditional games, writing and drawing in books and reading aloud original prose, poetry and folktales. The teacher speaks only in the foreign language in much the same way a mother would at home. This natural approach to learning also helps students master other foreign languages later in life.
In addition to our Spanish and Art Immersion Program, we will be offering an optional Zumba for Kids class daily from 8:45 am - 9:30 am and an optional Spanish Language Enrichment class from 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm. A 10% discount will be offered to families signing up for three or more weeks of camp. Remember to register for The Cottage School's Summer Program by April 16th for an additional discount!
