Spanish 1a with Phonics uses a wide variety of songs, activities and games to make learning beginning Spanish
an easy and enjoyable experience. Our Super Star Kids give presentations explaining the differces between the English alphabet and
the Spanish alphabet. After the Alphabet song, kids can explore the Spanish Alphabet by clicking on the letters to hear the names of the
letters. The Alphabet Dot-to-Dot is a fun way to practice the order of the alphabet. Most lessons are presented with a song, our "Learn the
Words" activty and a fun game.
The kids really love our games such as the "Numbers to 10 Race", the "Days of the Week Game"
or the "Buddy's Animal Safari Game". More fun activites include "Penny's Picnic" and my favorite game is
"Lily's Snack Shop".
Kids earn silver and gold stars for completing each game or activity and if they earn all the stars, they can earn a "Gold Star Certificate
Our unique "Learn the Words"
activity builds vocabulary and helps kids learn new words as they learn the sounds that make the word. We
show a picture of the word, the name of the word in both Spanish and English (they can move their cursor over the word to hear the word).
Next we show the phonemes in Spanish and English
that are used in the word in boxes. Kids can move their cursor through the boxes to hear each sound or they can move their cursor through
the boxes to blend the sounds to make the word. This is our blended approach to phonics showing the phonemes and the whole words together
to learn new words and learn the sounds that make up words.
