Here's what Montessori teachers have had to say about our Spanish book!
"I would like to let you know that I have enjoyed the Reading, Writing, and Spelling in Spanish I book very much." Clara, Spanish instructor, Franciscan Montessori Earth School, Portland, Oregon
I teach beginning Spanish to students in the 6-9 class, 9-12 class, and the Middle School at Alexandria Montessori School in Kettering, Ohio. I have been using the book Reading. Writing, and Spelling in Spanish I as a resource guide.
It has given me many ideas for materials for group presentations as well as individual student learning." Rebecca Hufziger, Alexandria Montessori School, Kettering, Ohio
"The book has many useful ideas for creating manipulative materials. We do not use text books in the classes, but we take lessons and exercises from them and adapt them to fit the interest and needs of our children The book's strength is in its approach and in the suggestions it offers for using existing materials in Montessori environments to teach Spanish." Gloria Hinojosa, Program Administrator, The Judson Montessori School, San Antonio, Texas
