Children will sing songs, play games, listen to short read-alouds and participate in other activities such as observing (and for the brave—touching) real insects in a safe environment. In addition to thematic activities, children will have the opportunity to develop and/or practice basic preschool skills such as counting, learning shapes, colors and opposite words in Spanish! Classes are specifically designed for non-native speakers, but native Spanish speaking children are more than welcome to come and join the fun! brightcove.createExperiences();
