Pasitos

(Little Steps)

Spanish Curriculum

Pasitos is a multisensory and interdisciplinary curriculum for children 6 months to 7 years old. It has the purpose to enable parents, caregivers and teachers to be able to expose young children to Spanish.

This curriculum is play based and it follows a natural approach. We believe that young children acquire a second language through repetition, association and most important interaction. Children learn through play and interaction with their caregivers and peers.

Curriculum framEwork

Pasitos is based on music, games, playing and hands-on activities. It utilizes all five senses. Children are more engaged in learning when they can relate to the concepts taught in class. They process better through play, movement, and art. Exploration and interaction with adults and other children is vital to learning anything. When they enjoy the process, they will learn more effectively. Learning a language is a long process, but it can be

done in a fun and natural way. This curriculum offers you that framework to learn in a fun and engaging way. This curriculum will support your belief that Spanish is important in a child’s education and encourage you to be intentional when it comes teaching and exposing children to a second language at a young age. The rest of the process will be the daily habits and routines you establish in class or at home.

frequently asked questions

FAQs Unit 1 - Colors
WHO IS THIS CURRICULUM FOR?

This curriculum is for teachers (classroom or homeschool) or parents who want to teach Spanish to their children/students at an early age.

WHAT AGES DOES THIS CURRICULUM COVERS

Parent/child classes for children ages 9 month old to 5 years old.

WHY IS THE CURRICULUM ARRANGED IN UNITS?

We have chosen units because we believe education should be integrated and interactive. A unit offers plenty of opportunities to repeat the concepts and words in a correlational way, which will help the student to associate and solidify the new sounds and words in Spanish.

HOW DO I USE THE AUDIOS IN THE CURRICULUM?

Listen to the audios as you read the lesson, the audios follow the order of the lesson plan. Once you are familiar with the lesson, you can listen to the audios by themselves.

HOW DO I USE THE FLASHCARDS?

The flashcards are a great educational tool to repeat the vocabulary learned in the lesson. Use them to drill over and over again the new words. Use them during meal times, before bed or other times where your child is relaxed.

HOW DO I USE THE PROPS?

The props are used to play the games in the lesson plans; but that does not mean you can’t create your own games and have fun with your child/student as you learn Spanish.

HOW LONG SHOULD I TEACH EACH LESSON?

The duration of the lesson depends on different factors: child’s age, interests, attention span, and time you can dedicate for Spanish. The lessons do not have to be every day, they can be every other day, or once or twice a week. You are the master of your schedule. It can be as short as five minutes and long as 20 minutes. You can do one lesson a day, or one lesson a week. The most important aspect is that you practice everyday words and sentences learned in the lesson. Do it as part of your daily routine, while you are driving to places, eating lunch or dinner, or waiting at the doctor. The more you use Spanish words and sentences, the more your child/student will be familiar with them and the more he or she will want to use them himself or herself.

WOULD I RECEIVE SUPPORT FROM A TEACHER IF I CHOOSE THIS CURRICULUM?
