Spanish!

I told the kids that we were going to try and learn to speak Spanish, and had been keeping an eye out for some good curriculum/books. I plan on trying the Library before I buy a whole lot, as I'd like it to be as cheap as possible! I got a lot of helpful suggestions here....she has been a great help to me in many areas! Thank you Kimberly! (she answered a question for me on this subject back in January) Well, yesterday as I was at my favourite store Ross finishing up some shopping for a birthday party, my eye caught sight of this.
The only bummer is that the reader books are actually not the animal ones shown, but are on the wild weather, destruction earth, and space mysteries. Still cool subjects though! I think I might go back as they had two of these, and see if the other one has the animal ones. It only cost me $9.99 and has three beginning readers with 3 matching audio CDs and a story book with a CD as well, 2 sets of flash cards (beginning words and numbers) a workbook, and reward stickers. I so hope they still have the other set LOL! If only I had looked inside...but still a great buy for $10! So now we can start learning Spanish! This is soooooo "us". Most of the books we buy are educationally fun, and the kids love animals, and creepy crawlies, and also scary weather ;).

Sounds like fun. I have always wanted to learn another language. I learnt a bit of Japanese at school but can only remember how to count to about 20. Glad to hear you have been having fun.
Did you get my email?
Love to you all.
