Our favorite curriculum this week is hands down Spanish For you which is a current review for us. Grace just comes alive when studying foreign language. Also she really loves watching CNN Student News, Liberty Tree House and now we have added Science Friday to the mix. She is definitely a visual kind of learner. Life is crazy right now with getting ready for cooperative recitals on the 22nd of April and then three performances of Aladdin in May. 

I am linking up with Homeschool Review and Weekly Wrap Up

We have struggled with so many foreign language programs. I even purchased Rosetta Stone but my oldest has a hard time with the pronunciation and the program may not always move her forward. This program looks great. I have a very good spanish-speaking friend who may be willing to help us out. It looks like their full curriculum will be available in June - perfect timing for next year.

Do you have any criticisms of the program?

What a great week Diane. I am loving how you list everything. Grace is REALLY talented! I will have to check into Spanish for You.
