A new century of discovery

Spanish

All 6th grade students take Spanish, and it is also offered to all 7th and 8th graders as an elective class Monday through Thursday. Spanish is highly recommended for all students to take in 7th and 8th grade, but not mandatory. Successful completion of 7th and 8th grade Spanish and passing the entrance exam in the spring of your 8th grade year will result in qualifying for Spanish 2 as a freshman in high school.

North Lake School is proud to announce its adoption of the Realidades Language Solutions by Pearson. This highly-acclaimed world language program combines research-based pedagogy with outstanding print and technology support. Our curricular goal is to build language proficiency and cultural understanding for the 21st Century.


Seventh Grade

Seventh grade Spanish is recommended for all students to take, but not mandatory. In this course, students explore culture and practice conversation on a daily basis. There is a great deal of partner work and interaction with others. Seventh grade Spanish is a lot of fun for students and includes lively games and songs.

The curriculum is derived from our new Realidades (published by Pearson) online resource and textbook. Topics and themes for seventh grade include:

  • Activities
