Teaching Young Children Spanish

I just finished my first year back to teaching after having the boys!! I was soooo blessed to get a part time position teaching K-5 Spanish at Cross of Hope Elementary when we moved to New Mexico. I had a lot of freedom in developing the curriculum to keep it age appropriate and FUN!! I used several resources from my past teaching experiences. Things on the internet have changed extensively in my 7 year break from teaching and I stumbled upon some amazing blogs about Spanish. One of my favorites is Mommy Maestra. It's written by a "Latina Homeschooler". I really enjoy all the Children's Literature and culture in her blog!! Go on over and check her out when you get a chance. Right now she is having a giveaway for a children's book about Pablo Neruda. I'm already thinking about the lessons I could teach next year if I win!!
