An Overview of the Fifth Grade FLEX Program

Fifth Grade FLEX Program

Throughout this year, your child will be introduced to the Spanish, Italian, French and Latin languages. In Wantagh, we call this the "FLEX" model which stands for Foreign Language Exploration. Your child will be taught these languages through an interdisciplinary approach. Each language segment is coordinated with the countries in which they are spoken, customs, geography and culture which will include conversational vocabulary. The classes meet twice in a six day cycle for 40 minutes each time.

Students will be introduced to many songs and games which will help to stimulate the children and encourage their learning and participation.
