Spanish

Bienvenidos!  Welcome to Miss O’Shea’s Spanish classes!

I have been teaching Spanish at Assumption since September of 2008.  I love Spanish and hopefully your child will too!

**Many of our Spanish songs can be downloaded on iTunes!  The majority of the songs are from the album, “Kids Learn Spanish” by Twin Sisters.  I’ll bet if you put some of the songs on your phone while driving, you will catch your child singing along!**

¿Que pasa in la clase de espanol?

What to expect in Spanish class…

The Pre-K2 students learn lots of fun words through songs, stories and puzzles.  They learning to touch their “cabeza” and have fun singing the “Touch Your Head” song!  ***This song is NOT on “Kids Learn Spanish.”  It is on a CD called, “Magic Spanish for Kids” by Beth Manners***
