Foreign Language Education Alumna Wants to Pay It Forward 09/09/2021

Foreign Language Education Alumna Wants to Pay It Forward

Congratulations to one of our current students, Martina Abbriano! We’re so happy you’re here and thrilled that our community has such an accomplished, dedicated educator working with students in Spanish and ESOL

[08/09/21]   Wanted: Part-time Spanish teacher for the O'Quinn Preschool (2's - K5). For more information please contact: Molly O’Toole | Head of School | 843-402-4819 | [email protected]

The O’Quinn School Spanish Program
Spanish is taught in our 4K and 5K programs at both the James Island and Mt. Pleasant campuses. The academic hours are from 8:45-11:30. Spanish is taught through auditory and visual modes including the following components:
• Incorporate movement wherever possible. Attach motions to words, and use brain
breaks that help get the wiggles out.
• Keep activities short and plan to switch activities every 5-10 minutes if needed.
• Use real objects and visuals to make it hands-on and always stay comprehensible.
• Build in a variety of activities: songs, stories, games, chats, play, and videos. It’s best to
have combination of calming activities and movement-based activities.
• Create routines that help the children know what to expect.
• Be silly and fun!
• Review, review, review. Little ones like repetition, and doing familiar activities is easier when they know what to do.
