The Spanish teaching begins…

P has been asking me to learn Spanish. We’ve done the basics (colors, numbers, and a few other things) but haven’t gotten beyond that. He came to me again a few weeks ago with his desire and I explained that if he wanted to go further and really learn Spanish he would have to work at it. He said he was willing, so I went shopping. While home in NC, I stopped by the wonderful teacher store, Education Express, and picked up these two things…

The first is a book/music cd and we both like it, it seems like it will be a great review of the things he knows and teach him a few more basics. The second is a dvd (which is very cheesy, but he doesn’t seem to mind at all, he’s a bit cheesy himself !). Even K (age 22 mos) enjoys the dvd so far. I am not sure where we will go with Spanish after this, I would love to hear any recommendations of good homeschool Spanish programs (for a mom who knows VERY little Spanish). This seems to be a good start for us though!

    Wonderful! We’re learning Japanese at our house, our resources just came in last week, so I’ll have to post them! We’re having a blast (I learned Japanese in HighSchool) so I have a pretty good foundation to build on with my kids :) It’s fun working on another language isn’t it!
