Our Philosophy of Language Learning:

We nurture young minds through a dynamic and immersive approach to language acquisition. We follow the principles of TPRS (Total Physical Response through Storytelling), a highly effective method developed by Blaine Ray. TPRS combines movement, storytelling, and interaction to create a captivating and natural language learning experience. We understand that young learners thrive when engaged in meaningful, real-life contexts. Therefore, our philosophy centers on providing a rich linguistic environment where children actively participate in storytelling, role-playing, and interactive games, enabling them to absorb language effortlessly. We foster a supportive and enjoyable atmosphere where children build confidence, fluency, and cultural awareness while having a blast on their journey to discover the beautiful Spanish language. Our goal is to instill a lifelong love for learning languages, empowering these young learners with valuable skills that will benefit them for years to come.

The Lemons-Aid Way: Our Approach to Teaching and Learning is Explicit!

Explicit teaching is a method of instruction students desperately need! It is the opposite of a constructivist philosophy whereby students try to construct meaning themselves.

Well…

Instead of leaving students to magically figure out how to write an essay or read or do a geometry proof, we teach explicitly, which is backed by a large body of evidence, and it’s how Mrs. Lemons teaches her undergraduate and graduate teacher candidates in college to teach! We do it this way because it’s how kids learn.

Explicit instruction is “a structured, systematic, and effective methodology for teaching academic skills. It is called explicit because it is an unambiguous and direct approach to teaching that includes both instructional design and delivery procedures. Explicit instruction is characterized by a series of supports or scaffolds, whereby students are guided through the learning process with clear statements about the purpose and rationale for learning the new skill, clear explanations and demonstrations of the instructional target, and supported practice with feedback until independent mastery has been achieved.”
-Explicit Instruction: Effective and Efficient Teaching by Anita L. Archer and Charles A. Hughes.

Anita Archer trained Mrs. Lemons in workshops, and it changed her teaching. Read a little more about the research behind explicit teaching here and here.
