Recommendations on Spanish Curriculum for Children

Recommended Posts

I'm considering starting Spanish with my elementary aged students and have no idea what curriculum to look for. I would like something that's pretty reasonably priced or that I could find used that would work well with children. Thanks ahead of time for any suggestions :bigear:

We are using Getting Started with Spanish this year, which is quite inexpensive. I just recieved it a few days ago and it looks pretty good. It's just a book, but then on the website you have access to free audio and games to go along with it.

My son still loves Salsa Spanish. Perfect for the preschool/K crowd.

 

:iagree:Both my kids love Salsa.

Boca Beth is fun for preschool and introduction to spanish. The child can get a Boca puppet and a musical instrument (shakers). There are two DVDs and 2 or 3 CD's. There is also a coloring book. I think this is geared for preschool though. My kids love it but they are 4 and 2 year old. They learn about animals, things in the house, colors, shapes, hello my name is... etc. She has the "5 monkeys jumping on the bed" song.

You can see some of her videos if you search the name on you tube.

I also found a online coupon.

 

Speekee looks fun too. It might be for older children and you can progess with it. I think the best way is through their montly subscription because its from Europe and their DVD's won't work on US DVD player. I found some homeschool mom review it on their blogs (in US) and said their kids enjoy it. I have not used it, so I can't comment on it. On their website, its says you can try it for free for two weeks.

Another vote for Getting Started with Spanish. We are about half way through and I am happy with how easy it is to use and learn. It's also inexpensive.

This is a good program that you might consider.

It is based on short conversations which are illustrated. The children learn these small pieces of conversation and they have several options for responses. There is a CD with all of the words pronounced and workbooks. It is an immersion type program and they seem to get good results.

Thank you for the Salsa Spanish. This will be perfect for my postpartum days for my kids to watch while I am recovering.

 

Now just want something for the older kids other than Getting Started With Spanish and Spanish for Children.

 

We are using Getting Started With Latin and don't want to get the kids all confused. We will probably use Getting Started With Spanish after postpartum, newborn and toddler stage of this last child I have.
