Course Description

Your child, age 4 or older, will learn the necessary concepts and words to prepare them for reading in the English or Spanish language.

Learning to read in one or both of these languages will propel them towards lifelong learning. Angelica's bilingual writing readiness course about learning lines and shapes will engage your child and set them up for success.

Your child will enjoy singing songs, answering questions, and repeating vocabulary with Angelica, our seasoned teacher, as they learn the names of the lines that will be used in letters, shapes, and numbers.

For bilingual families of Spanish speaking origin; this is the perfect course to reinforce the value of family heritage through language. Don't let the language get lost through the generations. Start them young with outside reinforcement of academic excellence in their native tongue.

Instructor Biography

Angelica Jensen, Spanish teacher

Abuelita Angelica grew up in a bilingual home where she became fluent in both English and Spanish. She later worked for nearly 20 years teaching children to read in Spanish. At that time there were little to no Spanish materials available to teach young children how to read Spanish. As a talented artist and a detail-oriented teacher, Angelica created a curriculum of her own. She created focused lessons using stories and art to engage children in writing and reading practice.

After developing these lesson plans and materials she was often asked for copies to share. She eventually started a business where she sold her curriculum across the nation. Now, wishing to share this information with more children around the world we have teamed up to create a simple but powerful online reading program for children.
