We've been informed that even the 2yr old household members of Homeschooling families are enjoying and learning with La Clase Divertida Spanish Curriculum!
A Complete Children's Conversational/Cultural Spanish Language Instruction Program! The Level 1 kit is the first level of a three level Spanish Language Instruction series. Upon completing the approximate three years of La Clase Divertida Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 (with individual conversational mastery considered) this curriculum in total, introduces approximately the same material and practical skill level as a High School Spanish 1 Conversation class.

CULTURAL TOPICS COVERED: We feature a Hispanic Country in each kit. Level 1 culturally features Mexico. There are (4) Mexican Food Cooking Segments, (6) Songs including a Christmas Posada, (4) Historical Stories told by Tuqui the Toucan, (7) Different Cultural Arts Activities, and A Map Study of Mexico.
Whenever someone asks for "fun" Spanish, I steer them to Clase Divertida. The video lessons, songs, craft projects, use of Spanish names and cultural/geographic content makes for an action packed lesson for parent and teachers to do with their students. Yes, you will be doing Spanish together. No, you don't have to know Spanish. Not crafty? It's ok, the videos teach the art projects. This is a program you can do. Your kids will look forward to their Spanish lessons every week! Each level includes DVD(s) with all 15 lessons being taught by Senor Gamache, an audio CD with pronunciation practice and songs, teacher's manual, 2 consumable student workbooks, and craft supplies for 2 students. The teacher manual suggests how to do a little bit of Spanish every day, spending 10 days with the content from 1 lesson. It sounds like a lot, but it is very simple to do and the repetition is then your scripted Spanish practice for the day. The student workbooks have exercises that reinforce the material learned in the video lessons, and there are flashcards to cut out and use for your practice time too. There is a cooking project in each lesson that you will have to get supplies for, but items should be a most grocery stores. As the teacher, read the lesson and gather any materials you need for your lesson beforehand. There is some Christian content in each level, though I would not call it an overtly Biblical curriculum.
Here are some highlights from the various levels. LEVEL 1: (1 DVD) names, vowels, Mexican flag craft, colors, fried plantains, alphabet, puppet stories, map of Mexico, galletas de boda, body parts, yarn craft, counting to 10, quesadillas, question words, animals, tissue paper flower, fried ice cream, pi?ata, family members, and it all comes in a black, canvas zippered bag. LEVEL 2: (2 DVDs) map of Spain, Spanish coat of arms, puppet story of Don Quixote, spelling names, review numbers, telling time, make gazpacho, seasons, months, birthdays, make castanets, weather, holidays, make paella, Columbus/Queen Isabella/King Ferdinand, ordinal numbers, las torrijas, decorate tiles, animals, restaurant, fan craft, make a pi?ata and a flan, all in a nice, red zipper bag. LEVEL 3: (includes 3 DVDs and a Spanish/English dictionary) formal/informal, regular verbs, house vocabulary, dialogue to memorize, numbers to 1000, que?, pottery craft, more conversation, noun/adjective agreement, Central America map/flags, pastel de tres leches, Caribbean countries, cooking plantains, Panama canal, mola craft, Cuban sandwich, friendship bracelet, baseball, drinks, guitar, and make a pi?ata, all in a blue canvas zipper bag.
Extra student packs include all consumable materials needed for 1 extra student. You want each child to have their own supplies for sure, sharing would not be a fun experience. There is a workbook, any additional activity pages and craft supplies to make all crafts in that level. You can also choose these materials with an additional audio CD, which is great option for a classroom or co-op group so that students can practice at home between instructional times. ~Sara
