Though not taught in Mason’s schools, Spanish is the second most common language in the United States and is a common choice for many Americans.

Vocabulary

In the early years, vocabulary is developed through pictures and objects around the student’s environment.  Below are resources you could use for vocabulary.  The key here is to remember that the students are not to see the words.  In some cases, you may need to find a way to cover the words.

Songs

Stories

Poems

M. Gouin’s Series
