Learning Spanish with Dino Lingo

I was really excited about this review.  I want to teach the kids Spanish and wanted to try this program.  This is what I received in the mail.

Can you say – overwhelm?  It took me a week just to take the stuff out of the box.  I know I have said this before, but I blog, I parent, and I homeschool.  I do not have time to learn complicated and intricate programs – especially in a language I don’t know.  This is what really impressed me about Dino Lingo.  Yes, all this stuff was included in the package – but there are no lesson plans.  There are no limits.  This is a robust framework for learning Spanish – your way.  Included are colorful posters, that you can hang, and use in your lessons, or not.  I used them as I think it helps when the kids see it everyday – and also develop fun and interactive activities around them.   There are DVDs which are fun and interactive.  If you are like me and don’t know the language, the DVDs help with pronunciation.  Plus, watching them with your child provides valuable bonding time!  The DVDs are broken up by lesson – so decide what you are learning – and only focus on that portion of the DVD.  For us, I wanted the kids to learn their numbers and letters in Spanish.  We watched those sections.

Also include is a song CD for the car.  This is an excellent way to “take Spanish on the go”!  It helps reinforce lessons as your kids will hear some of the words they learn in class.  Finally, there are over 150 flash cards. Since our unit was only colors and numbers, I took out those cards and placed the rest away.
 

Activities to Enhance your Dino Lingo Program

There are an abundance of activities that you can do with your kids to enhance their learning experience.  There are a variety of high quality blogs featuring fun activities.  Some of my favorites are…

 

Using Bilingual Books With Dino Lingo

Using books is a practical application to learning a language.  It’s not only great for vocabulary building, but also for Grammar!  Here are some great beginning Spanish Picture Book and Board Book suggestions.

  • Uno, Dos, Tres – My First Spanish Rhymes by Patrice Aggs.  Uno, Dos, Tres takes kids though one adventure to another – all while learning Spanish.  Contains vocabulary for people, animals and birds.
  • Marison McDonald Doesn’t Match by Monica Brown – Teaches kids colors and also teaches them that it’s important to be themselves – whatever that looks like.
  • My Colors My World by Maya Christina Gonzalez.  Take a journey and appreciate all the amazing colors this world has to offer.
  • Los Colores de Elmer by David McKee.  We love this book in English, but how amazing it is in Spanish.  Learn colors and animals with this great board book.
  • Fiesta by Ginger Foglesong Guy – Children open the book and have a counting extravaganza!
  • ABeCedarios by Cynthia Weill – Your child  will learn their ABC’s in English and Spanish while viewing beautiful Mexican Folk-Art.
