This brief program consists of a student book with song CD, and a teacher's edition. In 31 chapters, young students (PreK-1) encounter the Spanish alphabet, pronunciation, phrases, and vocabulary through exercises, games, folk-style ditties, handwriting exercises, and more.
The purpose of SongSchool Spanish isn't to bring kids to proficiency, but to get them ready to study Spanish more thoroughly. The layout is non-threatening, with lots of black and white cartoon-y illustrations, not-too-difficult exercises, and easy-to-accomplish goals that will help kids see their own progress and not get burned out.
SongSchool Spanish focuses on vocabulary and basic phrases that form the building blocks of Spanish fluency. The songs are guitar-based, utilize recognizable tunes, and help kids learn pronunciation while reinforcing and cementing the content they've learned in the books and through the exercises. The teacher's edition provides answers to all exercises on reduced student pages, as well as a variety of reproducible exercises with answers.
