    With flash cards, stickers, lots of pictures, and an audio CD, I think I could learn to read and speak Spanish, too! A lot of beginning language books focus on only learning lists of basic words. This one not only teaches you to read and speak lots of basic words, but it also instructs you on how to form them into complete sentences. The authors' teaching method is wonderful, as you not only read the words in Spanish with the help of colorful pictures and English subtitles, but you also hear the correct pronunciations on the audio CD. The lively narrator pronounces the word for you several times and then you can repeat it. There are also hands-on activities utilizing flash cards and stickers to complete sentences as well as create fun stories. This hardcover book has 47 text pages, 48 flash cards, 24 stickers, and an audio CD that is 78 minutes in length. Your children will love how quickly and easily they can master the contents of this book! – elise

    If you're looking for a simple but fairly thorough way to learn Spanish, this book teaches it in 15 straightforward grammatical steps. You'll learn Spanish the way people naturally acquire a language, with each step building upon the one before. First you learn the elements of a sentence with steps including: Nouns, Articles, and Adjectives; Estar, Ser, and Subject Pronouns; Hay, Interrogative Words, Days, and Months; Numbers, Dates, and Time; Regular Verbs; Irregular Verbs; Ir and the Future; Adjectives and Adverbs; and Negatives and Prepositions. Then you move on to more complicated steps like Indirect Objects, Direct Objects, Reflexive Verbs, Present Subjunctive, Preterit Tense, and finally Imperfect Tense. Each chapter contains clear grammar explanations and students will need to make sure they understand every concept before moving to the next or they may struggle to keep up. The book explains each component of Spanish grammar in an uncomplicated way, with plenty of examples to help students understand. After the explanations, varied written and oral exercises are included so students get used to reading, writing, and speaking in Spanish. While speaking with a native Spanish speaker is the best way to learn how to pronounce the words correctly, a pronunciation guide is included in the book that's very helpful in describing how words should be pronounced. Each chapter also includes Spanish readings with comprehension questions to help students learn new vocabulary and practice reading aloud. Some may find that there's not enough review or drills in this book to help them cement the language into their head, because it does move rather quickly from step to step. However, if students are willing stay with each step until they truly understand the section and have memorized the vocabulary words, this program will give them a working knowledge of the language and allow them to communicate in everyday Spanish. You'll need a Spanish/English dictionary to get the most out of this book because while some of the Spanish words are shown with their English translation (including over 300 of the most commonly used verbs), many are not and the actual number of vocabulary words (specifically nouns) is limited. Overall, this is a great book that can quickly give students the knowledge they need to comminute in Spanish with confidence. An answer key for all the exercises is included in the back.

    Filled with activity pages to acquaint students with basic Spanish vocabulary, this workbook is a perfect introduction to Spanish or a good supplement to a more heavy-duty program. Typical workbook-type exercises teach and quiz students on the Spanish words for numbers, shapes, colors, days, months, food, family, verbs, animals, clothing, parts of the body, opposites, and more. Accompanying the worksheets are over 350 vocabulary cards featuring a Spanish word on one side and the English word on the other. These cards can be used for a number of different vocabulary-building exercises described in the book. Answers are included. Reproducible, 128 pgs. – Melissa

    If you've been looking for a Charlotte Mason-inspired approach to learning Spanish, then you've come to the right place! Fun Spanish is a workbook that teaches beginners Spanish, one phrase at a time. This workbook introduces an average of five new words daily in the context of a "fun" sentence for students to copy, memorize, and illustrate. Each lesson appears on a two page spread. The left hand side of the page has verb conjugation exercises, a short vocabulary list, and a sentence in English to translate into Spanish. The right hand page has a Spanish sentence to copy, followed by three-quarters of a page of white space for students to draw a picture. Four lessons per week follow this format, followed by a verb conjugation review. (Verb conjugation reviews consist of conjugation exercises, English-Spanish vocabulary translations, and translating sentences.) Teacher helps include a suggested weekly schedule, memorization suggestions, and a brief grammar review/reference. Seventeen weeks of lessons are included, with answer keys following each set of weekly lessons. Not reproducible, pb. ~ Lisa

    Subtitled "Beginning Spanish for Homeschoolers and Self-Taught Students of Any Age," this book serves as a great introduction for the family who wants to "try out" the language before investing in a full-fledged Spanish course. This book contains 177 short lessons (usually a page in length), which are straightforward and incremental in progression. Lessons strike a balance between introducing new vocabulary, explaining simple grammatical concepts, and memorization of noun and verb forms. Lessons are self-paced, self-explanatory, and offer plenty of practice exercises. Lessons that introduce new Spanish vocabulary feature a new Spanish word, its English translation, and often a pronunciation tip, followed by about ten sentences to translate. Grammar lessons introduce concepts and verb forms gradually; as verb forms are introduced, they are added to a chart, which students use to aid in translating sentences. For pronunciation help, the author provides free, downloadable MP3 audio files on his website, which can be used with the lessons. Because this book is a non-reproducible worktext (not a workbook), it can be used with multiple students. (The author recommends writing the translating exercises in a separate notebook.). Overall, this course teaches students about 100 vocabulary words, gives them a grasp of basic Spanish grammar, and makes them comfortable translating simple Spanish sentences. After completing this program, students will be ready to tackle a "regular" Spanish program with confidence – and they will be off to a good head start! ~ Lisa

    We have some really solid Spanish curricula to choose from, but sometimes your student needs a little more. A little more practice and review, a little more listening to pronunciation and a little more of someone explaining the basics to them. Together, these videos (Parts 1 and 2) cover material covered in a first year, high school Spanish program. This is not a curriculum, but a supplement for extra help. There are two teachers, David and John, who help you with your pronunciation and go over some good basic grammar points. You can watch the videos again and again as needed, or just pick from the menu if you want to review a concept. There are other faces and voices on the videos, which is always helpful for developing a language learner’s ear. Some cultural dashes liven up the grammar, but really, the grammar is the good stuff here. The reviews are short and interactive. You are encouraged to repeat words and fill in the blanks with the correct words out loud. Spanish adults and teens are shown, and there are some group photos of friends on the beach in bathing suits, but they go by the screen pretty quickly. Each DVD is 40 minutes long with 6 lessons. Part 1: covers present tense regular verbs, ser and estar, informal future tense, phrases with tener and reflexive verbs. For the student who needs some direct practice in these areas, these videos are a helpful addition. ~Sara

    Colorful picture pages and loads of word labels make for an interactive and fun foreign language activity! I reviewed the Spanish book, but the one with English words would be great for an ESL student learning English. Each label has the Spanish word with the article which is great! This is how kids should learn new vocabulary, with the article (a or the) because it shows the gender and number of the word itself. Verbs are shown in their infinitive form as they ought to. Beneath this is the word in English. As you are looking at a page of illustrations for animals or family or foods, you place the label by each picture. If you are unsure about mispronunciation, you can go online to hear the words! Later pages show a cartoon scene, at the beach or in a town, and you place the labels in context next to the correct item. Labels tell you what page to place them on. You also get several blank labels to add even more vocabulary words to the pages, so get your dictionaries out! I like this as an addition to songs, or an introductory language program like Little Pim or the Sara Jordan materials. Once you have placed all of the stickers, you have a nice vocabulary book to look at and practice your Spanish! 16pp plus 8 pages of stickers, pb. ~ Sara

    What a cute addition to your Spanish lessons! Like a standard wall calendar, the top page of each spread holds the name of the month and a picture, while the bottom page holds the days in grid squares, with blank boxes to fill in the numbers if you want. The picture is actually a coloring page with a few vocabulary words. The best part is that in the square for each day is a new word/phrase to learn! For example, in March, marso (mahr-soh) you see words like las flores (lahs-floh-rehs.) What is even cleverer, is that the 4 words/phrases for each Mon-Thurs are put together into a complete sentence on Friday! It's just darling! Each word/phrase includes phonetic pronunciation. This could be your first go at learning Spanish without taking time away from your core subjects. In the back of the calendar is a glossary. You could use this to make your own flashcards and study the words from your calendar each week. All inside pages are black and white. 12x9", opens to 12x18" ~ Sara

    This simple little book is useful for teaching and reviewing basic Spanish vocabulary. Each page is devoted to a specific letter of the alphabet and it lists several English words beginning with that letter (along with each word's Spanish translation). Blank lines are provided on each page for students to add new vocabulary words they encounter in their studies. The front of the book includes tips on pronunciation and articles, and the back of the book reviews colors, days of the week, months of the year, and numbers. Non-reproducible. 32 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    Fifteen fun songs with Fritzi the mouse (actually sung by Jorge Anaya) that teach your children Spanish vocabulary as they enjoy the tunes! Some are familiar like Old MacDonald, but most are original. The booklet inside gives you the lyrics in Spanish plus the main vocabulary is translated for you (very helpful to parents). Add this Whistlefritz song CD to any program you are using with your young students. Play it in the car or when they are coloring for extra Spanish exposure! ~ Sara

    Break out the scissors, tape, paste and paper and make a stomach book, 3-D skeleton, a growing-tooth "movie," a cardboard spinal column, manipulative eye, and more! The book begins with a study of the sense organs: tongue, eye, ear, nose, and skin. Building models of each helps children understand how they work. The rest of the book is on body systems: skeletal, digestive, respiratory, circulatory, excretory, and muscular. Building models of the systems and some of their components after discussing them and performing some illustrative activities provides for active learning. Model patterns used are reproducible, so everyone can join in.

    Parents want their children to be good readers and effective writers, but how do you teach these skills in a way that is engaging for kids? What if you have a reluctant reader or writer in middle school, or even in high school? Literary elements such as character, setting, point of view and theme are not just for college-bound kids to study. All students can improve their reading comprehension with a better understanding of these elements. Authors Michael Smith and Jeff Wilhelm have two goals in this book: 1) to foster a deep appreciation for and understanding of literature, and 2) helping students read as writers, providing them with tools for their own creative writing. Each chapter covers an element listed above with activities and models for your student.

    While this looks like a workbook, it is mostly reading. Parents can read this to help them teach their middle school students, or older kids can read it to teach themselves. It explains the what, why and how of teaching literary elements to students. Plenty of examples demonstrate the points being made. A helpful resource parents and teachers will turn to again and again for literature class. 208 pgs, pb. ~Sara

    Sara Jordan's series of language learning songs has been around for a while now (item #053347). This, however, is an enhanced version of Bilingual Beginners Spanish and uses the same songs as on that CD, but is expanded on. A nicely done workbook is included so you now have lessons to go with the songs. Students will work on oral skills (greetings, following instruction, singing, rolling R's), writing (made for beginner writers with dotted letters/words to trace), reading (simple words, word boxes, coloring activities, matching), grammar (questions, affirmative, negative, nouns, gender, articles, present tense verbs), vocabulary building (greetings, colors, numbers, home, time, food, family, body) and spelling (alphabetizing, capitalizing, Spanish accent marks). There are 12 lessons all together with answers in the back. For each lesson, there are cards for games and teaching activities: requires printing off cards from the publisher's website. Lessons are shown in both English and Spanish and have a group activity, the audio portion from the CD, and 2 or 4 writing activity pages. Since the CD models pronunciation, knowing how to speak Spanish isn't necessary. I think it would be helpful to have some prior exposure to aid your young learners' pronunciation. Reproducible for one classroom/homeschool. 63pp. ~ Sara
