Family Resources for Live Classes

Zoom link for all live classes ’23-24*:

*Make sure that you change the zoom profile name to your child’s name or else you will not be let in for safety reasons. Choosing the option to allow me to unmute your children will also make classes go smoother.

Semester calendar:

Fall Calendar: Fall Online Live Spanish Classes will begin September 6th. No classes on Nov. 22 & 23, Dec. 22-31. Classes for January 1 & 2 (New Year’s) and 15 & 16 (MLK Jr. Day) will be pre-recorded for students to do on their own time to enjoy these holidays with family. This comes out to 2 out of 36 classes per semester being self-paced to respect those holidays. Fall semester classes will finish on January 19th. 

Spring Calendar: Spring classes will begin the week of January 22nd. The week of April 8th will be “Spring Break Week,” which just means that instead of live scheduled classes for that week, you will receive two interactive pre-recorded lessons that your children can do any time during that week! These pre-recorded lessons are an awesome way to let your children review and challenge themselves at their own pace! All other weeks will be live classes twice per week. Classes are 30 minutes each and the semester is 18-weeks long. Our last classes of the semester will take place on May 22 & 23, finishing up before Memorial Day.

Classes are 30 minutes each, twice per week over two 18-week semesters. Remember that upon registration, you have consented to paying off the full semester that you registered for. Your spot cannot be given to anyone else and your payment information is locked into the payment processor’s system and auto-charged until you have paid off the full semester.

Link to missed class recordings:

Recordings of each class will be available for two weeks inside this Google Drive folder:

Finding the correct class recording is a little confusing. Read this doc for how to find your child’s class recording:

Extra Practices

Use the orange link buttons below to choose the right extra practice slideshow for your children! 

Supplies and Learning Environment:

Learning Environment– please have each device set up in an area without distractions. Please make sure that they have room to stand up and move (enough room to play charades or do jumping jacks).
 
Supplies– Printed class materials (see below), blank paper, pencils, some type of colors (crayons, markers, colored pencils, etc.), glue & scissors (if age-appropriate). Headphones are optional but can be very helpful for focusing.

Printing:

For Beginner and Upper Beginner Levels, the full semester printing packet is ready to print with the buttons below. For Intermediate level, as these classes are still being planned, the Intermediate button below contains printouts to mid-October. For the rest of the semester, we’ll do our best to email this printing out to you one month at a time, at least one week prior to students needing it. 
Please help your children keep track of the printouts as we will often use them to review and build upon throughout the semester and school year. Keeping a Spanish binder would be a great idea! If you misplace any printable, you can always come back here and select individual pages from the packets below to print. 

How can I best support my children with their Spanish-learning?

 
  1. Make sure that your children attend as many classes as possible and arrive to class on time.
  2. Help your child get familiar with basic Zoom functions like mute and unmute. 
  3.  Let them know that language-learning is hard and that is okay! Learning a language is not easy! It is okay for your children to feel challenged and even frustrated at times while learning Spanish.
  4. If your child is struggling to focus, encourage them to take a quick ten-second movement break! Count to diez while doing jumping jacks! 
  5. Although it can be tempting, try your best to refrain from helping your children during class with Spanish answers. Many parents make the mistake of occasionally feeding their children answers during live classes. While this is a totally natural instinct, it slowly teaches your child that instead of learning how to answer for themselves the next time, they can just look to a parent or sibling. This can be very harmful to your child’s language acquisition abilities and will take some time to undo once the habit is formed. Instead, when I ask students a question in Spanish, I give them a moment to try to dig into their memory to answer for themselves. If I see that they are struggling to do so, I will intervene by having them repeat part or all of the answer after me. This will help to form the habit that they know they can always give their best shot and then look to their teacher for help if necessary. Learning to speak with a Spanish accent is also extremely important, so repeating after me is essential for students. Again, language learning is hard and that is okay! 
  6. Try out the self-paced video lessons (link above) outside of class if your child needs extra practice with a certain topic.
  7. If you miss a class, make sure to watch the recording (link to shared Drive folder above).
  8. Never hesitate to reach out to me with questions or feedback! I am so determined to see everyone’s children succeed. Let me know if there’s something that may help your child, or ask me if you want ideas for extra practice! Email nate@expeditionspanish.com any time! I try to be extremely responsive.
