Teach & Learn Spanish
Are you looking for a dynamic, colorful, engaging way to introduce students to Spanish? Teach & Learn Spanish (TLS) fits the bill! No knowledge of Spanish needed to get started! Each monthly unit comes in a spiral bound book format with an attached CD. TLS appeals to a variety of learners using high quality, colorful visual aids, songs, chants, games, role plays, and a variety of fun activities for children ages 3 to 8 years old. With the audio CD and activities, lessons will take between 15 and 30 minutes. Once a week is sufficient, but the more repetition the better for students retention (2-3 times per week is ideal). An easy-to-follow lesson plan pulls it all together. A perfect option for a group or co-op, enrichment class, or even the classroom. Homeschooling parents will love the pre-planned organization and ease of presentation as well.
This may sound like a lot of work, but if you can fit in a 30-minute weekly lesson, you can use this program. Students will just love the fun songs, games and colorful photos! The author recommends keeping your book intact by reproducing and laminating all images and flashcards for lessons.
Simply pull out your monthly file and you are ready to roll. She also recommends making separate files for rules, numbers, colors and alphabet since these topics are covered throughout the year. With any program using manipulatives, keeping the stuff organized from the beginning will make it a delight to use going forward.
The author has included a coupon inside each monthly unit to access the teacher training videos for free for one month. If you are nervous about getting started, or just want someone to show you how, you will want to take advantage of this offer. In these videos, the author shows you how to teach the activities in each month. Although we do not currently offer these videos separately, you can find more information and purchase them at www.oneilllanguage.com.
