I love it when we are working through out the house and in free time out of the blue you hear the kiddos start singing and chanting in Spanish to this Song School Spanish Music_Audio Cd. Just so darn cute. In our house, whether it is audio cd's or music playing, it is usually loud and it is never a dull moment. Best of all is while the audio_music is playing, in the background are the voices of all three of my younger kiddo's. Who would not love this?
Funny share: The first night my 7 yo listened to this cd, when she went to bed that night, off and on through out the night we heard her singing in her sleep some of the new spanish songs she learned. Very sweet moment!
How we used this curriculum: The above schedule suggestion worked well for us because we only school Mon-Thurs. So using the reccomendation of 3-4 days in shorter increments worked perfect for us. Before the first lesson begins, there is a sample of what a 3 day schedule should look like when using this curriculum. It will better help you in setting your agenda up for this curriculum.
In the students book, each lesson is pretty short and simple. At the beginning of each lesson is the weekly words and phrases to learn. Notes the chapter songs and track to use and gives a brief discription on what the lesson will cover or have an explanation of instructions. Simple, Short and brief -- but to the point! The kids assingment may be a full page or a half of a page long at 2 maybe 3 pages total. There is basic copying_tracing, word writing and answering short questions plus don't forget the added activity sheets in the teacher's edition that of course is optional to use.
(Did I mention, It's definately easy?! --- My true thoughts: I can definitely do this!)
We started out with our word review and used the Bonus Song School Spanish Pronunciation together. Played the required audio tracks for that lesson. I gave a few minutes for the lesson pages. We did not use the Spanish Amigo Match Flash Card Game on a daily basis. And honestly, rarely used it as a game. Usually we just used it as a recap or flash card to see what they could recognize and say by memory using these cards.
- There are also additional activities near the back of the book that you can incorporate in to your lessons. Some we used and other's we skipped over.

I believe this curriculum was a hit with our family. I was a little apprehensive in the beginning but in the end I will say this is definitley a plus. I would use it again. My thanks to Classical Academic Press for letting our family review your curriculum.

- Your tonuge needs to be loose or relaxed. You can help relax the tonuge by using tongue-twisters. By repeating them over and over each time taking it a step faster, you will have achieved relaxing your tongue.
- Your tongue also needs to be brought forward. Not touching the back of your teeth. Many say the front part of your tongue should be touching the ridge of your mouth. (ex. say No, Netherlands, Nothing) Where your N sound is, is where your tongue should be.
