Libro de Conversación 1
Sometimes I have struggled with the fact that my elementary students can’t identify and answer basic questions like“¿Cómo te llamas?” (What is your name), or “¿Qué hora es” (What time is it?) after years of learning Spanish. This book “Práctica de conversación 1: Spanish Conversation Practice for Elementary Students” was created based on this need. It helps students practice short conversations related to their name, place of origin, address, age, birth date, telling time, favorite color, cost of clothing items, ordering food, etc. The book also comes with written practices to reinforce the oral contents learned in written form and answer key. The book is available in Amazon, here. You can preview the book there too.
ABC Libros de Lectura Inicial
Have you been looking to improve your student’s Spanish pronunciation? Do you want to teach your students to read in Spanish? This book, “Lectura Inicial Beginning Spanish Reader 1” can help you! Inspired by various early readers used in Spain and Latin America, and designed within my own experience, “Lectura Inicial Beginning Spanish Reader 1” will help you introduce the sounds of the Spanish language to your students.
The book contains phonetic lessons that introduce mixed letters and their sounds. The lesson starts with a syllabic practice that progressively becomes more complex as students read words and sentences. The book is also fully illustrated with creatures that are out of this world!
There are three books and these are the phonics covered in each:
Book 1: the vowels, consonants: m, p, l, s, t, f, n, d, r, c, q, ce/ci
Book 2: b, v, g, ge/ge, j, vowel combinations, h, ñ, y, k, w, x, z
