Product Description:

Practical and well-designed lessons are easy for parents to follow using the Whistlefritz series. 40 lessons use creative and interactive projects like making puppets, trying new recipes, making play dough, and drawing pictures of family. Each new lesson refers back to past learning, helping the new vocabulary and phrases stick. Fritzi is a cartoon mouse found throughout the program and he is darling. The lessons guide a parent/teacher, telling them exactly what to say and do. The Lesson Plans are meant to be used with the DVDs (sold separately or bundled in the Educator's Collection). The pronunciation help comes from the DVDs (there is an assumption that the parent has previous pronunciation knowledge) so you'll need to make sure you know the correct pronunciation too. In the lesson plan book are vocabulary words to have your student repeat and practice. Expect each lesson to take 30-40 minutes including the videos and activities. You are only watching a part of video for the actual lesson. Scripted plans means very little prior planning! You can assemble materials for the project and get the DVD ready and voila - time for your Spanish lesson! Every single lesson has the following categories: description of lesson, goal, objective, vocabulary, materials, time, focus, teacher input, guided practice, independent practice, closure and extension activities. If this sounds like it was written by a classroom teacher, it was, several very talented ones. Pages may be reproduced for your own home or classroom use. There are lots of pages you will want to make copies of for the activities. I love that this is a hands-on program without requiring a student to be able to write just yet. This is a good in-between step from a beginner’s initial exposure to a foreign language and doing something with a written component (aka workbook.) You will need all of the DVDs to get the most out of the lesson plan book. Lesson Plan book is 273 pages long, softcover.

Publisher Description:

Developed by professional educators with over forty years' of combined teaching experience, Spanish Lesson Plans for Kids is a scaffolded curriculum of 40 lessons that engages children in fun, interactive, age-appropriate activities, such as creating puppets, following recipes, conducting experiments, and playing board games. In addition to Spanish, the curriculum includes cross-curricular lessons in math, science, and physical education. Beginning with Lesson 1 Who am I? (Qui©n soy?), the lessons flow in a logical progression of thematic units (Colors, Numbers, Shapes, Places, Around the House, Clothing, Seasons, Parts of the Body, Positional Words, Food, Family, Animals, and Descriptive Words), culminating in a fiesta. Lessons identify clear goals and learning objectives as well as extension activities that are designed to enhance children's appreciation of Spanish culture. The lessons emphasize the development of proficiency in speaking and listening, with play-based assessments included to allow educators to evaluate student progress. Spanish Lesson Plans for Kids is an adventure in learning for teachers and students!

Category Description for Whistlefritz Spanish for Kids:

Practical and well-designed lessons are easy for parents to follow using the Whistlefritz series. Forty lessons use creative and interactive projects like making puppets, trying new recipes, making play dough, and drawing pictures of family. Each new lesson refers back to past learning, helping the new vocabulary and phrases stick. Fritzi is a cartoon mouse found throughout the program and he is darling. The lessons guide a parent/teacher, telling them exactly what to say and do. The pronunciation help comes from the DVDs (make sure you know the correct pronunciation too so you model it correctly). In the lesson plan book are vocabulary words to have your student repeat and practice. Dont worry, they are very fun and engaging videos! You will enjoy them. In the videos, you see a persons face as he/she says a word. Children can imitate how the person looks as they are making sounds that are not in English. This is something you dont see with other language videos. Each 25-minute immersion DVD contains a variety of short scenes including live action, animation and puppets. Plenty of repetition, slower-paced conversation, and an easy-to-follow format are nice for parents and kiddos. Several short songs are included as well. Expect each lesson to take 30-40 minutes including the videos and activities. You are only watching a part of video for the actual lesson. Scripted plans means very little prior planning! You can assemble materials for the project and get the DVD ready and voila - time for your Spanish lesson! French lesson plans will be available later this year; though we currently offer the DVDs (#39684 & #39699) if you want to get a jump on it. Every single lesson has the following categories: description of lesson, goal, objective, vocabulary, materials, time, focus, teacher input, guided practice, independent practice, closure and extension activities. If this sounds like it was written by a classroom teacher, it was, several very talented ones. Pages may be reproduced for your own home or classroom use. There are lots of pages you will want to make copies of for the activities. I love that this is a hands-on program without requiring a student to be able to write just yet. This is a good in-between step from a beginners initial exposure to a foreign language and doing something with a written component (aka workbook.) You will need all of the DVDs to get the most out of the lesson plan book. You could, however, use the videos without the plans. All of the voices are native speakers on the Whistlefritz materials, which helps your children develop an authentic accent as they imitate what they hear. The card game is a fun way to practice vocabulary and has a little fox character named Rito demonstrating the words, as well as the printed word with pronunciation help. 50 cards can be turned face down to play a matching game. Be sure to have your kiddos say the word when they turn up a card! I like the idea of a proper lesson once or twice a week and having the kids watch the videos for fun on other days. Keeping it light and fun, your children will be asking for Fritzi! ~ Lisa/Sara
