Teach Them Spanish!
Due to the quickness that young children possess in picking up a foreign language, it is ideal to introduce the language as early as possible. This is easy when the parents themselves know the language, but what if they don't? Well, you're in luck if you are interested in teaching your child Spanish. The Teach Them Spanish! series is designed for the parent/teacher "who has little knowledge of Spanish and a lot of enthusiasm." Each book provides a vast source of teacher lesson plans and age appropriate worksheets and classroom activities. At the preschool and kindergarten levels, the material is presented in units categorized into general themes familiar to young children such as greetings, colors, numbers, foods, clothing, classroom objects, community, family, the face, transportation, and animals. The majority of the activities include activities such as games and songs that encourage regular repetition of Spanish vocabulary. At the upper levels, the material is presented in more defined lessons. Each lesson includes an easy to follow teacher lesson plan covering 4-6 activities. The content of the upper level books progressively advance in content and work to develop skills including listening, speaking, reading, writing, vocabulary, and grammar. For example, at the uppermost level (5th grade), lessons cover the topics of: numbers, month & dates, frequently used expressions, gender & plurals, definite & indefinite articles, using numbers, occupations & possessive adjectives, clothing, antonyms, telling time, sports, sizes, shapes, colors, prepositions, subject pronouns, regular -ar verbs, regular -er verbs, regular -ir verbs, irregular verbs, adjective agreement, household items, restaurant & market, and transportation. ~ Enh
