In the coming years we intend to do a lot of traveling out of the country. Costa Rica is at the very top of my travel bucket list.
To prepare, I wanted to ensure that my youngest has a basic grasp of the Spanish language. I’ve compiled here, a few of my favorite ways to teach Spanish in our homeschool.
Four Easy Ways to Teach Spanish in Your Homeschool
- This year we’re jumping in with Spanish by pulling from a few different resources to create an eclectic curriculum for my First Grade student beginning with this newly re-released workbook The Complete Book of Starter Spanish While not a comprehensive curriculum, it’s chock full of age-appropriate vocabulary words and phrases that will serve as a good introduction and review to the language.
- Another resource I’m excited to begin using to incorporate Spanish immersion in our homeschool is this show Salsa from Georgia Public Broadcasting. The videos are entirely in Spanish and center around familiar childhood stories. Each 15 minute video includes a transcript in bot Spanish and English for parents to download. There’s also a suggested hands-on activity that correlates with what happens in each video.
- If you’re looking for printables and techniques to help you teach Spanish in your homeschool, check out SpanishMama.com Elisabeth is a wealth of information from techniques, to printables as well as information on Spanish culture and a very comprehensive Teachers Pay Teachers Store!
- While I’ve yet to use Spanish for Kids, it seems to be a great full and complete curriculum for teaching Spanish. There is a homeschool version available that can be done entirely online for $95 for a single-user license. This seems a great way to teach Spanish in your homeschool if you’re looking for a more structured option.
Teaching Spanish in your homeschool can be a fun and rewarding. It is an opportunity to help your children experience more of the world around them from the comfort of their own home.
