* This curriculum is more skill based and whole language based than focusing on particular grammar points. Grammar, vocabulary, and culture are woven into the activities in a more natural approach to language learning (similar to how we learn our native languages).
All of the major skills are covered: listening, speaking, reading, writing, and culture. Through the daily discussions, students are given helpful vocab and phrases so they can speak about a variety of topics (see the description). While they're recording videos or writing in a group chat, they're learning how to use things like: voy a ir, quiero + infinitive, quisiera, etc.
The trifold flashcards review all the AR verbs through 3 sentence story strips, so they read a short story and put in the correct verb form. Next they read the same story, fill in the verbs and extra grammar through context such as articles, adjective agreement, prepositions, etc.
All of these activities include a wide variety of new vocabulary, with reference sheets with the words in English so they can learn what they mean. Basically, this is a very natural approach to learning the basic language concepts that you'd learn in a book, but via the way you would use them in daily life through reading, writing, listening, and speaking.
Here's what teachers are saying:
* "These activities are helping tremendously now that we have to teach everything online! I love the way they are not boring but rather engaging! ¡Muchas gracias!"
* "I love this resource and I've found it so helpful. If you do more lessons for distance learning I will absolutely purchase them! Thanks for putting this together."
* "This bundle couldn't have come at a better time. I have just converted all my Spanish classes to on-line, and I was looking for a way to engage my lower level students by giving them ways to practice Spanish but without it being too overwhelming or difficult. This packet is perfect!"
