    Question Curriculum in Spanish, for subjects other than Spanish

    I'm looking for some suggestions on where to find books or iPad apps in the United States to teach Math, Science, etc in Spanish for the elementary grades. I'm not looking for a curriculum to teach Spanish to the English speaker.

    I would also welcome some tips on how to search for this, either on this forum or though Google. My search terms keep returning stuff for learning Spanish as a foreign language - there has to be a more appropriate search term that I'm just not thinking of.

    There's definitely not much of a homeschool market for those products. Maybe try looking at what Spanish language public schools or charter schools are using and make that your starting point?

    We had a discussion about this a few month ago. I had posted some resources about this then. Let me see if I can find it.

    I'm thinking the trick might be to simply do the SEARCH in Spanish? That way your results will be in Spanish as well. Maybe something like: plan de estudios aritmética

    What I thought was a detailed discussion only had a couple of links. When I looked for a native, Spanish curriculum, I found this blog which seems to have the most detailed information. It may not all be secular, but it is informative and provides a foundation that may have what you are looking for.

    Mommy Maestra: A Comprehensive List of Spanish Curricula


    When I experiment with the terms for Google here are some ones that I tried:

    "plan de estudios de español homeschooling"
    "estudios en casa"
    "escuela en casa"
    "homeschooling en puerto rico" (I realize that you are not in P.R. but there might be resources that would cater to Spanish speakers.
    "homeschooling curriculum en español"

    This last one is how I found the blog I posted above.

    For apps, what age are you looking for? There are quite a few out there, but too many to list.

    Thumbs up Thank you

    Mariam - thank you, the blog you posted was very helpful. And so were the search terms - the part about Puerto Rico was brilliant. When I have tried to search in only Spanish, I tend to get results from across the globe. Some of which is useful, but some was culturally not compatible with what I was looking for.

    Farrarwilliams - good idea about checking with local schools. I will post what I find out, in case anyone is searching for something similar in the future.

    MEP math had a few years in Spanish. I don't know what that means because we were pay that stage when they came out, but the program is free, so ready to check.

    Didn't Math Mammoth have some or all? available in Spanish.

    After a lot of searching I found aI Spanish language book about important people in Mexican history which complemented what we were doing in English at the time, but it was not a curriculum.

    Lastly, at one point I had the website for the Mexico City curriculum (i think what I had was at www.sep.gob.mx) however, it took so long to even open anything (think dial-up speeds) that I gave up before I found anything useful.

    Oh, I also randomly found the Spanish edition of a Janice Van Cleave science book at s book sale. So if you start getting desperate you could try that avenue.

    Hope something there helps. Oh, and as Topsy suggested, I have better luck when I search in Spanish.

    When I was renewing our subscription to BrainPop I saw this and thought you might be interested:

    DS really likes BrainPop and I am happy with the section of offerings. For us it has been worth the price. I thought you might be interested in the Spanish version. They also have some free videos, so you can try it out before you purchase subscription.

    I don't have anything useful to add, but just wanted to say I am so impressed with the breadth of knowledge that this group has. I always learn something interesting!

    What a great resource in Spanish. I was thinking of renting dvd's in spanish but didn't know what would be appropriate. This is perfect--gracias!
    Kids are so much more than a test score.
    Qualities not measured by a test: creativity, persistence, curiosity, humor, self-discipline, empathy, humility and so many more!
