Curriculum Ideas for Preschool and Kindergarten

Monday, July 31, 2017

I am sharing general ideas for teachers based on how a “typical” school year might look in a Preschool and Kindergarten Spanish class. All the ideas I’m sharing here are geared toward programs that meet once or twice a week. In this schedule, there is not that much contact time with the students in the target language, so some of the concepts should be recycled and taught in a spiral way. In other words, if you teach numbers during the first month or two of the school year, continue to make time throughout the year where students may continue to be exposed to the vocabulary. For example, count apples in September and have them guess how many hearts you have in a bag in February.


I like using my students as a guide to know how long I should be exploring the content, but make sure to always go back to it and weave it throughout the school year. 

In the spirit of full disclosure, please note that many of the suggestions have links to resources in my Teachers Pay Teachers store or affiliate links to Amazon. I invite you to also explore many of your local libraries to find some of the books suggested below. The activity packs that are available on Teachers Pay Teachers have teaching tips, suggested ideas, and games.

I hope this serves as a good starting point to help you create your own curriculum. You might also find new ideas here that you would like to incorporate into your existing curriculum.

  1. Carolina, thank you for sharing these ideas! I am a French teacher, and I can certainly see myself implementing quite a few of these. I like how each of your units touches on various content areas, such as literature and music. I can see how these lessons and activities can be engaging for your students! If you are interested, feel free to join my blog: teachinginthetargetlanguage.com. I would love to collaborate with you! :)
