The Calendar Time Curriculum is included in the bundles and Sonrisas Levels I and II. It is also a useful supplement for Sonrisas Level III.

How It Works
  • Teachers follow the Calendar Time scope and sequence or create their own with the Calendar Time scope and sequence template.
  • Teachers plan each Calendar Time lesson by filling out the Calendar Time lesson plan which includes daily questions, review, daily activities, alphabet activities, geography activities, month activities, and season activities.
  • Students gain a solid foundation in meaningful Spanish communication that connects them to their environment and gives them a deeper understanding of the world around them and how they fit into that world.
  • Teachers can use the Calendar Time Curriculum as a standalone curriculum for preschool or elementary Spanish. For teachers using Sonrisas Level I or Level II, the Spanish calendar activities can be done in the Circle Time segment of each lesson.
