SpeekeeSpanish for kids. MASSIVE ONLINE SUBSCRIPTION GIVEAWAY
* Would you like to give your child the language advantage?
Then look no further than Spanish. 414 million people speak Spanish on our planet compared with 335 million who speak English, and in this increasingly globalised world knowledge of Spanish is becoming more and more vital.
* Why now is the best time to start learning Spanish
Children’s brains are programmed to acquire languages. Your child hears, sees the language used in context, and absorbs new words and phrases like a sponge. They don’t hesitate to learn and they easily adopt a Spanish accent. It’s incredible to behold!
* Speekee – Spanish for Kids
Children learn languages best when they’re having fun, and having fun is what Speekee is all about. The Spanish learning is video based. The videos feature real Spanish children in real Spanish locations, and the Spanish is presented in a rhythmical, structured, step by step fashion. With Speekee your child is immersed in Spanish at all times!
In response to feedback from users, audio clips are being made of every single piece of Spanish language presented in Accelerate. The great thing about Speekee being exclusively online is that the program can be constantly improved on!.
* What WE Think of Speekee
So we tested it.  From a mom/teacher standpoint it’s fabulous – especially since I don’t speak Spanish.  I was learning just as much as he was.
Some lessons you’re just watching a video.  Other lessons have a printable sheet to go along with the less to do after you’ve watched the video.  And each lesson has some ideas in the notes for futher practice and review.

This is a great choice if you’re looking for a homeschool Spanish curriculum

Other than reading the preface to each video and priting a sheet on the days that required it, there is no “prep” time for the lessons.  Which takes the pressue off a busy mom!   Students can do one lesson a day as part of their daily subjects  or if your style is to do multiple lessons each day of limited subjects, you can do that too.  When one lesson is over, it’s a quick click to the next one.
G even wanted to make a video much like the ones he watched while doing his Speekee Lessons:

Isn’t that adorable?  Yes, it was his idea to include the cat.

3rd School Day

Back to School 2016

So I kicked off this blog on July 13th of 2015 with our first day of school post.  As I wrote about in that post, our first day of school did not go as planned because we had been without air conditioning in our house since Saturday night.  The repairman was scheduled to come out “sometime on Monday” when he could “squeeze us in”.  So we actually had to pack our school books and head to the library and do school there until the repairman had a better idea of when he could come by.

Flash forward to the first day of school, July 11th, 2016 and we start our day headed to the mechanic to pick up our van that we had been without all weekend.

What IS it with things breaking the weekend before school starts???  (I don’t have a blog post to confirm the dates but the washing machine broke sometime in July of 2014 too….July is NOT our month….)

But we did start our day praising Jesus that there was nothing seriously wrong with the van and no additional repairs were needed beyond the battery that we replaced the previous Thursday.

So it was still early when we got back home so the first day of school DID happen (almost) just as I planned!

The first thing he wanted to tackle was reading.

If you want to know why we start back to school in July, check out our “semi” year round homeschool plan here.

Here are the “must do” back to school pictures:

(The desk looks MUCH different than it did the night before – picture here)

The ballons on the desk made him so happy.  They’re his balloons.  I took them off the sticks so I could lay them on the desk.  But it still made him so happy.  He gets so excited about the little things.  It’s one of the things I love about him.

I get my back to school sign printables here.
