Spanish (FLES)

The FLES (Foreign Language in the Elementary School) program follows the Arlington FLES curriculum framework, which is aligned with national and state standards.  All students in the FLES program have access to high-quality instructional materials to help them develop the desired proficiency. Arlington utilizes a variety of resources.

Cross Curricular Connections

The FLES curriculum in Arlington provides opportunities for making connections between Spanish and other subjects, namely math science.  For example, students in Second Grade practice math skills by counting by 2’s and by 10’s or by making a bar graph of the students’ favorite colors.  This allows the students to learn specific vocabulary (colors, in this case) in an authentic context (talking about what they like) while at the same time practicing and important math skill (making and reading bar graphs). In conjunction with the Science Office, curriculum was developed for Kindergarten through Fifth Grade that integrates specific science goals for each year group, aligned with Virginia Standards of Learning with related content in Spanish.
