As a first-time teacher of Spanish to young children, I was looking for help! This curriculum gave me everything I needed to plan well-structured lessons for my students. And the results were extraordinary. The kids were having so much fun, they didn't even realize how quickly they were acquiring Spanish. --Sharon Fillion, Spanish teacher, Austin, TX
We have been reselling the Sonrisas curriculum for almost 7 years. As an independent reseller, I can honestly say that I recommend the Sonrisas curriculum and the new cultural curriculum to any Spanish kindergarten and lower elementary program. We believe in it so much, we stock all of the supplemental readers recommended in each lesson! --Cindy Tracy, President - World of Reading, Ltd., Atlanta, GA
The parents love the weekly reports showing what the children have learned during the week and what can be done at home to reinforce the lessons. The children love the fun games and songs they have learned in class. I love the CD; it is a wonderful way to support the Sonrisas curriculum and the children's language learning experience. --Yvonne Darrah Steckel, Austin I.S.D.
