We are a group of Spanish curriculum specialists/writers, elementary school teachers and homeschool parents with 10+ years of experience working with children ages pre-K through high-school. Our TPT resources currently focus on younger children, ages pre-K to 6th grade.
We believe in inspiring passion & proficiency in the world language classroom through the use of a fun & interactive immersion-style curriculum. Our experience has convinced us that true Spanish language learning only occurs when it is proficiency focused and incorporates non-stop hands on learning, where students are fully engaged through fun activities, games, music, stories, etc., presented in the target language.
Calico Spanish's YouTube channel featuring original music videos by a native speaker is one of the longest standing Spanish teaching tools on the website, with more than 6.5 million views and counting! Use all of our videos for FREE to introduce your students to common phrases and situations they will encounter as they begin communicating in Spanish. The memorable rhythms and melodies make learning entertaining, fun and easy! Find our channel at - https://www.youtube.com/user/kidsimmersion
