Educator's Spanish Collection from Whistlefritz Review

Disclosure:  I received this complimentary product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW.


We were blessed to receive the Educator's Spanish Collection (with ¡Buenos Días! and La Música) from Whistlefritz.  Whistlefritz was founded in 2006 and is an award-winning producer of language-learning programs for children.  Their music CDs, videos and lesson plans have won numerous awards.  They offer high-quality immersion programs in both French and Spanish.  These programs are not only geared to be playful and interactive with their animation and lively music, they also foster natural curiosity and learning.

We chose to receive the Educator's Spanish Collection.  This collection contains Spanish Lesson Plans for Kids, Spanish for Kids videos on DVDs, and Spanish for Kids music on a CD and a DVD.  We recently started using this program and I have been focusing on the younger kids as it is geared for ages 1-7.

I also downloaded the Home Educator's Guide that has 46 weeks of lessons.  This is such a valuable resource with this program!
I absolutely love these weekly calendars that show you the schedule and activities.  It incorporates the lessons, music, videos and other enrichment activities into one easy peasy schedule 💗.

G has been really enjoying the bonus activities.

Above you can see the Table of Contents for 31 of the 40 lessons inside our lesson plan book.
In Lesson 5, the boys learned about sorting and graphing fish as well as colors.

This curriculum engages students to learn Spanish through participating in projects, creating puppets, playing bingo, making pictures, etc. rather than relying on drills and rote memorization.

In our Spanish for Kids videos, children are immediately immersed into the language.  I love this!  Children will hear, see, and speak Spanish as they learn from native speakers, while having fun.  Check out a sample video below.

Our music CD features a compilation of 15 upbeat Spanish songs that the kids enjoy listening and singing to (sometimes dancing).  You can see the song titles above.  In our Spanish for Kids DVD La Música, children go on a musical adventure around the world learning about food, weather, days of the week, parts of the body and more!

Whistlefritz is lively and fun and I'm really looking forward to using it more with the boys.
