The Song School Spanish Book 2 Teacher’s Edition includes:
- The entire Song School Spanish Book 2 student edition content, along with answers and additional teacher’s notes and tips.
- Small Group Activities: These activities are designed to help students practice vocabulary and get used to speaking Spanish for a real task, such as asking a partner where he has hidden a game piece or conducting a survey of their classmates’ interests. Variations for homeschool use with one or two students are provided for each Small Group Activity. Corresponding activity page printouts are included in the back of the teacher’s edition and also available as a free PDF download (listed below).
- Active Games: These games are designed as an opportunity to combine language acquisition with gross motor movement, which studies have shown leads to enhanced learning in preschool and elementary students. These variations of classic playground games are centered around the lesson’s vocabulary.
Song School Spanish Book 2 continues the engaging introduction to Spanish started in Song School Spanish Book 1. Each weekly lesson is peppered with songs, illustrations, handwriting practice, and activities for easy mastery and memorization. As the perfect bridge between Song School Spanish Book 1 and Spanish for Children Primer A, Song School Spanish Book 2 gently and gradually introduces students to Spanish grammar, as well as new vocabulary, amply preparing students to move on to the next step of their Spanish language studies.
Note that the corresponding teaching video and Amigo Match Flashcard 2 Game will release in spring of 2019.
Q: Can I still use Song School Spanish Book 2 if my students haven’t completed Song School Spanish Book 1?
A: Yes, you can! We recommend asking new students to listen to the Song School Spanish Book 1 pronunciation files (available for free on the Support tab of the Song School Spanish Book 1 product pages) for extra practice. Also regularly schedule review time for the whole class. For example, ask new students to spend two weeks listening to the Book 1 songs, then schedule a vocabulary review game for the whole class at the end of those two weeks.
Online games and practice available here!
