Sonrisas Spanish School was founded in 1996 by Blue Lindner after she became interested in combining her experience as a bilingual/ESL elementary teacher and her experience teaching at the Austin Waldorf School. Blue's husband Brooks, also a certified bilingual/ESL elementary teacher, soon joined her, and Sonrisas Spanish School grew rapidly from 12 students at one school to more than 100 students at multiple schools in the Austin area. The curriculum that Blue and Brooks created and used in their elementary Spanish classes proved to be very successful. The combination of ESL techniques and Waldorf techniques addressed the specific ways that children learn Spanish. The results were phenomenal not only were the students learning Spanish, but they loved Spanish class and looked forward to it. Noting a lack of Spanish curriculum at the early childhood level, Blue and Brooks decided to publish their curriculum in order to share their success with other Spanish teachers. In 2002, they completed and published Sonrisas Spanish School: An Early Childhood Spanish Language Curriculum. Ten years later, their first book continues to sell steadily to teachers in all fifty states.Review:
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.
