I started a preschool/kinde Spanish Kids Club in my moms group.

Anyone have any recommendations of any curriculum or sites or resources they've used that they love?

Right now I am pulling together various things and being creative but would love some assistance!

Bump!!!

We're homeschooling our two boys, and my DH speaks Spanish, but we're looking for some curriculum for DH to use to teach us all. Any recs?

We are a family of Jesus loving urban-nesters living the granola life in a not-so-crunchy city.  Our kids (DS 8, DS 7, DD 4) are home birthed and educated, and we just found out that a new Little will be added to our roost mid-April '14!

For the early ages, how about songs, verses and stories in the target language with props? Schiller's book of "The Bilingual Book of Rhymes, Songs, Stories and FIngerplays" may be a hit!

Warmly,
Carrie

Thanks for the tip-

I did end up getting some predone felt board cut outs at the teacher store and these 2 resources-

"Teach Them Spanish" preK by Winnie Waltzer-Hackett by Instructional Fair
and
"Spanish" ages 5+ by Twin Sisters Productions

I think these resources will at least give me some ideas that I can use so I am not totally creating everything each month for our preK Spanish club.

* I love the TPR approach and am trying to adapt my ideas to incorporate this method of learning for the little ones. When I taught middle school Spanish, I used Cuentame and Cuentamas and loved it...I would use these again for my girls once they get a little older...the content is not quite a match for 4 year olds
