What Can I Do With My Child At Home?

Spanish is a very important language in America. C.S.C students are positioned to gain a fluency in Spanish that is unique. Most schools do not start any serious vocabulary building until the 6th grade. At Cambridge we start in pre-school using the same method that Spanish-speaking children all over the world use. We introduce them to words in Spanish by speaking to them in Spanish and making neurological connections between words and meaning, with no English standing in between. This method is so different from what is taught in most schools that we have not been able to find curriculum that meets our teaching style. So we design our own.

In the primary and early grammar grades there is very little written instruction that goes on. But flash cards make the learning process tactile and fun. Under the "Resources for Home" section, you will find links to flash cards that you can use at home to reinforce what is being used at home.

Playing games with your child while stuck in traffic or before bed are perfect ways to re-enforce skills learned at school.
