What Makes Sparkito! Different?

Unlike traditional ESL of bilingual programs, the Sparkito! content was written by a content team of native Spanish speakers living and working in Monterey, Mexico. From pronunciation, to word choice and sentence structure, it will be quite obvious that this program features 100% "authentic language."

 

Effective instructional design and pedagogy

In Sparkito!, teachers will have the ability to teach concepts in a variety of way utilizing multiple modalities. Music is heavily used throughout the program and is a great way to create "sticky" content for kids.

 

Leverages your existing classroom technology

All a teacher really needs to make use of this content is a classroom projector. However if you have Interactive White Boards in your classrooms (SMART, Promethean, etc) this is the perfect way to put those technologies into use.

 

The Sparkito! Instructional Model

  1. Engage students with Sparkito! "Sing & Learn" lesson

  2. Reinforce vocabulary using digital flashcards

  3. Check for understanding using interactive student activities

  4. Congrats! You have achieved English Spanish Success!

Although there are a variety of ways to use the content, this is one very typical example of the "flow" of lesson delivery that a teacher would use. The lesson will begin with a fun and engaging "sing and learn" (which is also a perfect opportunity for sing-along) and then will immediately flow into reinforcing vocabulary. Then you can finish with some hands-on opportunities to check for understanding. Because 100% of the content is available in both languages, the teachers are always able to choose which language "mode" to be in at a particular time. For example, if your bilingual model is 50/50, the teacher could easily flip back and forth even in 1 instructional period.
