Montessori pedagogy provides fertile ground for language learning and acquisition.
Unfortunately, there is not a lot in the way of Montessori language teaching and learning materials for guides who strive to bring world languages into the learning experience for elementary aged students.
El Puente Bilingüe is here to help change that. Our curriculum harnesses first language Montessori learning practices and skills and transfers them to second language learning, empowering young scholars to become inquisitive and analytical lifelong language learners. Our scaffolded lessons and unique mastery track activity options are detailed in our guidebooks in a way that is easy for instructors to present. Our Montessori tracking system make organization and planning easy for guides.
Pre-k and up
We have materials that can support students as young as 3 years old all the way up through middle school aged students.
The entire curriculum offers the equivalent of a high school Spanish 1 class, all while helping students build a very strong foundation as a lifelong language learner.
