Good supplement Jan 4, 2008
I use these reproducible worksheets here and there in my private Spanish classes (for the younger, elementary ages), and the students enjoy them. I do believe this is better used only as a supplement rather than a complete curriculum. For my own children, we use them in addition to just speaking in Spanish and of course my own curriculum - but they do ask to listen to the words on a CD (I guess that's what they're used to).
I also make out vocabulary lists for the different worksheets and flashcards to give more practice. So ... for someone who doesn't already know Spanish, I think they might be frustrated. If you start with something that comes with a CD like Ana Lomba's book Play n Learn Spanish, or Flip Flop Spanish, this is a useful add-on.
Great introduction to Spanish for young children Sep 6, 2007
This book was designed for classroom teachers, but also works well in a homeschool setting. I am using it for my 4 1/2 year old daughter and we both enjoy it. Through cut and paste, coloring, and other activities, children learn: introductions and greetings, numbers 1-10, colors, classroom objects, family, food, clothing, and community words. There are suggestions for supplemental books as well as easy lesson plan ideas included.
The downside for homeschoolers is that it requires quite a bit of photocopying. The book is cheap enough, though, that you might decide just to have your child draw and write in it and buy another copy for subsequent students. I felt very comfortable using this, but I do have the advantage of some knowledge of the language. If you have zero Spanish experience, you would want to make sure that you know how to pronounce the words before teaching them to your child. Other than that, it is very easy to pick up and run with it.
Simple ( but effective) introduction to the Spanish language Jul 23, 2007
I'm using this book to teach my 5 year-old son some basic Spanish as part of our homeschool curriculum. The lesson plans are less detailed than I am used to as a home educator, but easy to figure out and adapt to the homeschool environment. The reproducible worksheets have illustrations that are visually appealing without being overwhelming. These worksheets are to be saved and combined into the child's very own "Spanish Book" (complete with motivational cover page that can be filled with stickers provided by the teacher). Game ideas, songs, and book recommendations accompany each lesson. This book is good for parents and teachers who have at least a little knowledge of Spanish pronunciation (since there is no audio)! Highly recommended!
Good idea, needs more explanations Mar 20, 2006
I like the idea behind this book, but it's not real organized. If you want to supplement a classroom with a few worksheets, then this might help a little bit. I bought it to use in my private Spanish classes, and have yet to use it - it's just too specific to its own lesson plans, and not thorough enough to use as a stand-alone curriculum. Of course I'm biased, but the Flip Flop Spanish curriculum is much more concise and simple, and comes with a CD.
Needs more focus and helps for homeschool teachers Nov 3, 2005
I tried to use this book to homeschool my student. Not having any knowledge of Spanish - this was not the book for us. For example, they have a writing practice on page 31 in spanish and the child is supposed to be able to read it. However, they don't give you the translation in English. Since I can't read or correctly pronounce Spanish - well, let's say we were both in the dark. I would recommend this book if you can read, write and talk in spanish.
