Doposcuola – Now Online!
Doposcuola (literally translates as “after school”) is an Italian education program for elementary school-aged bilingual children (ages 5-10). This year we are moving Doposcuola online with Zoom, where we will be offering two programs to help your children continue their Italian studies from home. Children will continue to learn how to read, write, and speak in Italian with engaging activities such as singing, cooking, dancing, and yoga.
“Leggo e Scrivo,” Tuesdays (3:30 – 4:10PM)
Per bambini dai 5 ai 6 anni
These lessons will focus on developing Italian literacy skills; we will teach your children the building blocks to read and write in Italian. We will work on grammar, reading, and writing skills with our text book A come…a scuola insieme. We will play movement games, sing songs, and complete “progetti” (craft projects) to strengthen our Italian vocabulary. This program is for bilingual children who speak Italian at home and/or have completed preschool in Italian.
“Ambarabà,” Wednesdays (3:30 – 4:10PM)
Per bambini dai 7 ai 10 anni
The aim of this program is to enable children to breathe Italian life, culture and history while living and playing in it. We will work on grammar, reading, and writing skills with our text book Ambarabà 2. At least one lesson per month will be devoted to a typical Italian dish; we will learn its historical significance, study the geography of its origins, prepare the ingredients, and, of course, eat it! This program is for bilingual children who speak Italian at home and/or have completed previous studies in Italian.
