Spanish For You!



Hey Neighbors!

Our next product from the Crew for review is the Spanish For You curriculum!  Do your children have an interest in learning Spanish?  Mine do.  We visit a few churches each year that have a Hispanic congregation, and although they speak English, it is also fun to be able to converse in Spanish.  Each of my girls has picked up a little bit just from having friends that speak Spanish, but we thought this would help a little bit.

We received the downloadable course Estaciones or Seasons. The courses are theme based.  I am going to mention first, I think I would recommend the actual, physical copy.  I don't know if it works the same with the physical copy of not, but there was quite a bit of searching done to find the appropriate lessons and activities.  This is supposed to be corrected.

There are audio files and activities included to be used with the curriculum.  This includes flash cards to print out and use with your child.  The lessons are set up for 4 days a week, but you could easily do 3 a week.  Each class should take approx. 30-40 minutes, depending on the activities you decide to do.  You can click HERE to see the Table of Contents and learn a little about the program.

Here is a little about the author, Debbie Annett, of Spanish for You from their website:
have been teaching Spanish for grades kindergarten through high school for 14 years.  I have taught Spanish enrichment classes for grades 1 through 8, and all levels of high school classes for homeschool students.

I am an Illinois State Certified Teacher with a bachelor's degree in Spanish from the University of Illinois and a master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Northern Illinois University.  I have studied in Seville, Spain, and have 8 years of international business experience prior to becoming a teacher.  I currently teach Spanish classes for Tri-City Enrichment Homeschool Coop. for grades 3 through high school, as well as tutor students privately and provide after-school Spanish enrichment classes.


You can purchase the entire Estaciones download for grades 3-8 for $64.95.  One of the benefits of this is you have all the grade levels right there.  This is convenient for homeschoolers who have varying ages to teach.  You could easily use this with more than one grade.

We are headed to New Mexico soon, so perhaps my daughters will get a chance to try out their Spanish.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
