Challenge School Spanish Program
The Spanish program aligns kindergarten through eighth grades. The curriculum is designed using state standards and the ACTFL standards. The focus in elementary is to explore the cultures of the Spanish speaking world and to learn some basic vocabulary and phrases. The middle school program is the equivalent of Spanish 1 and Spanish 2 in the high schools. 5th grade is the same as Spanish 1A, 6th - 1B, 7th is the equivalent of 2A and 8th - 2B. This means that most of our students are successful starting high school in level 3. We have recently included many more Comprehensible Input strategies and activities and use Martina Bex’s curriculum Somos 1 & 2.
