¡Hola! Littletree has been loving the homeschool Spanish-language group that started in our village :)
Since Spanish was essentially her first language (we were living in Central America when she first started talking and she spent the first 15 months of her life in Latin America, but it’s since fallen into disuse), she’s picking it up faster than the other kids, but it looks like they’re all having fun.
The teacher is from Spain, so it’s interesting to get the differences between the Spanish and the South American accents – apparently I have a funny Argentinean accent!
The kids have a great time, it’s very casual and “unschooly”.
They play a lot of games, like card games to learn numbers, playing with differently-coloured stones to learn colours…
And the classic Twister – colours and body parts!
Today we learned to sing “Heads Shoulders Knees and Toes”, played “Animal Families” to practice numbers and learn animals, and practiced basic small-talk. Then we sat together for lunch – a great way to learn food words :)
