One of Wilton Continuing Education\u2019s new student enrichment programs this fall is designed to help preschoolers start to learn Spanish \u2014 Preschool Spanish with Se\u00f1ora Vicky.The eight-session program beginning in October will provide \u201ca great foundation for Spanish in elementary school and beyond,\u201d said Victoria Kantor, instructor of the class.Kantor has been teaching Spanish to students since 2005. She teaches three- through eight-year-olds at Wilton Parks and Recreation, as well as students at the Zion\u2019s Hill Preschool, Create Learning Center and Children\u2019s Day School.\u201cThe preschool years are a prime age for language acquisition. Often-times, schools don\u2019t start teaching languages past these prime years,\u201d she said. \u201cBy starting preschoolers with languages, parents are capitalizing on this natural ability young learners have to \u2018soak up\u2019 the language \u2014 particularly in areas of pronunciation.\u201dWith the objective of having preschoolers learn more than colors, numbers and animals, Preschool Spanish with Se\u00f1ora Vicky will introduce them to a rich vocabulary in context \u2014 including relevant phrases for their age \u2014 in a dynamic and entertaining way.\u201cIn my preschool classes, I incorporate music and movement, puppets, props, finger play, games and stories to make language acquisition easy and enjoyable for young learners,\u201d said Kantor.Because preschoolers \u201cderive comfort from routines,\u201d she said, each 45-minute class will include an opening song, weather song, \u201cthe specific teaching point of the day, carried out through a game, another song or audiovisual material,\u201d and will end with an \u201cAdios\u201d song.She also uses familiar songs and stories like \u201cLa ara\u00f1a peque\u00f1ita\u201d \u2014 \u201cThe Itsy Bitsy Spider\u201d \u2014 and believes \u201cphysical movement is key to keeping children engaged.\u201dKantor said she always incorporates \u201ccultural tidbits\u201d into her classes, such as \u201csharing traditions of children from my home country of Argentina and other Spanish-speaking countries around the world.\u201dPreschool Spanish with Se\u00f1ora Vicky will take place on Mondays, beginning Oct. 2, from 1:15 to 2, in Preschool Room N001 at Miller-Driscoll School.
