More on the Calico Spanish philosophy:

An effective all-encompassing curriculum integrates key elements in achievable chunks. Instead of overwhelming children with long vocabulary lists and grammar, Stories is filled with language connected in context - even in online learning. New concepts and vocabulary are presented in contextualized, bite-sized chunks such as a number, color, animal, actions, and verb phrases. These topics are reiterated throughout our games, songs, and activities to reinforce the language connections for kids learning Spanish. Once these basics are acquired, it is possible to move on to even more complex ideas.

Stories enables you to to build students' comprehension skills and give them a love for Spanish language and culture that will motivate them to continue learning Spanish for years to come. Try Stories today and experience the joy of learning with Calico Spanish for Kids.

Calico Spanish gives instructors an incredible foundation for teaching Spanish to children. The curriculum was structured by teachers so that students have the opportunity to learn Spanish in an immersion environment.

Children absorb the language through observing gestures, visual aids, pantomime and demonstrations. They comprehend Spanish throughout various activities by using audio cues, visual aids and actions to stimulate their brains' language acquisition centers. Finally, they have the opportunity to naturally use Spanish as they engage in fun activities and sing along with our custom music resources.

Interactive lessons and sentence frames in conversation activities give each student opportunities to express unique ideas in Spanish. Students are equipped with solid, foundational Spanish skills that enable understanding of new concepts and vocabulary when presented using contextual cues and prior knowledge.

By making Spanish fun for kids, they are comfortable using their acquired language skills and are responsive with full sentences and independent ideas by the end of our Stories program. It is surprising how quickly children can learn Spanish, so set challenging goals to watch your students progress.

It is challenging for teachers to find time to develop interesting lesson plans that meet the diverse needs of their students. Calico Spanish makes lesson preparation quick and easy for teachers so they can focus on their class. Teachers are equipped with research-based strategies that are interwoven into over 200 hours of step-by-step lesson plans. Using proven methods of language acquisition, the lesson plans present topics in diverse ways so that visual, audio and kinesthetic learners can better understand, use and retain the language.

The lesson plans supply teachers with an array of options for introducing and reviewing concepts and vocabulary in Spanish. These different methods encompass all types of learners to create an environment where teaching and learning Spanish is enjoyable. Since children are discovering the language for themselves through vibrant visual aids, catchy music and TPR activities they better retain the language and actively want to use it. From the first presentation to the last targeted assessment, teachers are equipped to engage each of their students to make learning Spanish fun.

Calico Spanish provides everything you need to create your own Spanish immersion environment. With the quality music, visual aids and detailed plans you will enable your students to learn and communicate in Spanish.

The vibrant graphics set a cheerful tone that attracts eager learners. Furthermore, the custom visuals allow teachers to easily communicate new concepts, tie the components of the curriculum together, and help students make connections between written and vocalized words.

Calico Spanish is designed to make Spanish for kids an enjoyable experience. The primary goal of the early Stories levels is to develop a student's receptive language skills.
