See it and Say it Flip Flop Spanish: Whole Family Spanish (SiSi)
The See It and Say It Flip Flop Spanish bundle is a two-year curriculum designed around the Charlotte Mason methodology. Simple concepts and words are introduced as pictures and once the foundation of a new language is established, the program builds the student into a bilingual speaker. Designed specifically for audial, visual, and tactile learning styles, See It and Say It Flip Flop Spanish has all the tools necessary to engage every type of student.
Fun for the Entire Family
The program is designed for every age and is best used interactively with the whole family or with another person, mimicking the process toddlers use in acquiring their first language. Complete with games, charades, and skits, each lesson engages young and older learners alike.
Minimal Lesson Plan Preparation
Each week (one lesson) will include three sessions, approximately 15 minutes each. The parent's prep is to simply find the cards, lay them out, and push play.
After laying out the numbered cards as instructed on the Lesson Page, the entire family is led by the audio instructions on the audio files, and the parent or teacher has the manual to follow along, as desired. On day one, the audio feels just a tad fast, so that on the third time you're listening, it's JUST right, and never tedious or boring. Parents are encouraged to read the lesson content to the students at the end of the week, rather than listening to the MP3, so that the language is truly relational, encouraging maximum absorption (and enjoyment!)
Supplemental Materials / Ideas
There are built-in "break weeks" encouraging reading Spanish books from the library, watching favorite movies in Spanish, and encouraging cultural Spanish outings to try out your new language tools, and receive more authentic input.
