Language programs for any grade
The FL4K award-winning Spanish program is trusted by school districts, as well as private and charter schools, for students in pre-K through high school. The program is structured so it can be successfully taught by Spanish or general education teachers. It can serve as a complete K-8 curriculum, for weekly or daily instruction. For any world language being taught, the customizable games and activities are an excellent supplement for the elementary, middle, or high school classroom.
Teaching that adjusts to the level of involvement
Students can learn independently online, whether at home or in a classroom. Facilitators can easily check student progress and scores to ensure that students are learning and completing assigned activities.
Facilitators can explain the hands-on activities and create stations for small groups of students. Our fun Spanish activities include card games, drawings, activity pages, and worksheets. These are provided in our Teacher’s Guides and can be adapted for online learning.
Students can meet regularly as a class to complete hands-on activities. Teachers can choose from the FL4K Spanish lesson plans which activities and games work best for their students. Teachers can also assign personalized at-home activities based on abilities and preferences.
State-of-the-art skill building
Speaking, listening, reading, and writing
Through our K-8 Spanish curriculum, kids develop their skills in all four communication areas: speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Our scaffolded videos, interactive online games, engaging cultural adventures, and activities using audio, text, image, and video prompts ensure kids have fun learning how to communicate in Spanish.
Our Spanish curriculum for kids includes frequent speaking opportunities throughout the program. Students participate in simulated dialogues, which include an automatic replay of the student speaking Spanish. Students also record themselves speaking Spanish in response to audio, text, or image prompts.
For more advanced Spanish-speaking students and heritage speakers, all instructions and materials can appear in the target language and activities and assessments can be customized to emphasize reading and writing.
Students gradually build writing skills in Spanish by responding to questions related to the video stories, featured characters, real-world situations, and cultural adventures.
Complete Spanish immersion
For immersion programs and more advanced students, all instructions and content can be provided in Spanish, including our nine-level culture program, Aventuras culturales, which provides engaging topics students can use to practice and expand their vocabulary and conversational skills. Students encounter situations involving critical thinking and problem solving, participate in discussions about real world events, and explore diverse and exciting cultures.
The entire curriculum is taught with audio
FL4K's entire Spanish curriculum is presented to preschoolers audibly so they can learn with an integrated program that builds their developing skills and language proficiency, instead of having to use different apps that don't connect.
