It's that time of year, everyone! The Holiday shopping season is upon us! (At least it is if you're like me and get an early start to avoid the mad rush of frazzled, last-minute shoppers in December!)
For the 2016 Holiday season, I will be featuring tons of great gift ideas for babies, kids, men, women, pets, and even for the person who has everything. We all have some of those on our gift lists, don't we? There will even be loads and loads of chances to win many of the gifts I am featuring. How cool is that?! You can check out my 2016 Holiday Gift Guide at any time from now till Christmas. Make sure to check often, as it will be growing by the day!
Today, I want to talk about something that's sure to delight any kiddos that are curious about language and the world around them.
Whistlefritz offers great, early learning products that will teach kids different languages, such as Spanish and French! Founded in 2006, Whistlefritz was borne out of a mom’s passion to teach her own children Spanish. After reading research showing that early childhood was the best time to learn a language, Whistlefritz’s founding mom set out on a mission to find fun and educational teaching materials for her children. She searched for videos with engaging storylines, featuring live speakers rather than cartoons, and teaching through immersion. Not finding what she wanted, she decided to create it: engaging, playful, live-action Spanish immersion programs for her own kids and kids everywhere!
We recently received the Educator’s Spanish Collection to check out for ourselves. This collection is fantastic for homeschooling families like mine, or for anyone who wants their children to effectively learn Spanish from an early age.
This set includes the following products:
Enrich your Spanish instruction with the award-winning, multi-media Educator’s Collection from Whistlefritz. The Educator’s Collection provides a rich and diverse set of tools for Pre-K and early elementary Spanish teachers. Developed by creative and experienced educators, Spanish Lesson Plans for Kids is a scaffolded curriculum of 40 reproducible lessons that engage children in a diverse array of interactive, age-appropriate activities. Spanish for Kids Videosteach vocabulary through an appealing blend of live action and animation ideal for visual learners. Spanish for Kids CDs get children on their feet singing and dancing to an irresistible mix of Latin songs and rhythms. The Matching Cards are a playful introduction to action words. Packed with fun, laughter, and music, the Educator’s Collection is a treasure trove of teaching activities and materials for the Spanish classroom!
My kids have really enjoyed supplementing their learning with this awesome set from Whistlefritz. At first, I was worried that the Immersion-style learning would be too difficult for them to catch on to, but I was completely wrong. My kids seem to do very well with this style of teaching, since the repetition helps them to catch on, and catch on very quickly.
While the kids' favorite products are definitely the videos, the rest of the set is wonderful as well. I love the Matching Cards, since they allow my kids a simple, fun way to hone their Spanish skills. The workbook is also fantastic, since it also allows kids a variety of fun activities to help put their language learning into action.
And if you love music, the CDs are a fun way to immerse your kids in Spanish while moving and grooving to the beat of fun, lively songs.
Overall, we're absolutely delighted with our Whistlefritz experience. My kids are doing extremely well with this program, and are learning new Spanish words and phrases every day. Being bilingual is such an asset in today's increasingly global economy, and I love the fact that Whistlefritz offers a fun, effective way to start teaching these essential language skills from an early age.
This would make an amazing gift this Holiday season, so be sure to check out everything that Whistlefritz has to offer!
