Flip Flop Spanish Workbook: Ages 6-9: Level 1
*A note about workbooks* With tried and true methods like fill in the blanks, matching, and coloring, a short daily exercise gives students and families simple methods to reinforce learning after listening and repeating the Spanish vocabulary presented on the included Audio CD.
Each Flip Flop Spanish workbook presents different information than SiSi (See it and Say it). Lessons include phrases and questions varying from manners, the weather, and introductions - phrases that are quite difficult to present on flashcards, but are still important to acquiring Spanish.
Many families begin their family journey with SiSi, and then move to a workbook for each student, or vice versa. The workbooks and See it and Say it are not intended to be used concurrently, and do not "track" with one another. There are some overlapping vocabulary words, but on the whole, the method varies so greatly from the Flash Card method, the reinforcement is welcomed and celebrated by the students. Enjoy continued, deeper learning in a new method, or begin afresh with workbooks centered to their age and learning style. *End of Note.*
This level of Flip Flop Spanish is still chock full of lessons taken from Sra. Gose's experience as a Spanish teacher. Many parents, unable to attend class, began asking to purchase just her weekly "homework packets." After teaching and enjoying the progress of her students, Sra. Gose saw a need, and took the curriculum the students enjoyed and learned from the MOST, and re-formatted it in this sturdy, spiral bound series.
To be sure the students get review (always a necessity with language acquisition,) these workbooks have a novel Flip Flop to them. Work through the book forwards, and then on the return journey, you and your student flip the book upside down to work on the opposite pages. You both will see the work you've done previously, thus reviewing, without boring your student. This set-up also requires your child to fold the book all the way back, and focus only on one page at a time.
With more than 16 weekly lessons, a full glossary, sample flash cards in the back, and an Audio CD with every word pronounced for you, Flip Flop Spanish is a comprehensive, low-stress way to begin learning Spanish, and speaking it immediately!
The book's website adds to your journey with even more lesson ideas, games, and fun activities to further enrich your Spanish study. Enjoy!
