I would like to know if anyone is using Cherrydale Press with there children. I have a DS who wants to learn Spanish and I was looking at another program and I am not sure if I want to buy the other program or from Cherrydale Press. Also, can I use Cherrydale Press with my 1st grader?
Also, I would like to know is there any companies that are CM friendly for French.
Thanks in Advance,
I own it and plan to implement it with ages 6-16 in our CM co-op next year. I love the simplicity and expect it to be quite effective. I know there are plans from Cherrydale to release a French version.pangitParticipant
Did you see this recent discussion: http://simplycharlottemason.com/scmforum/topic/cherrydale-press-spanish-book-users-do-you-jump-around-in-the-volumes
Missceegee and pangitn,
Thanks for responding. Are there any workbooks that go along with the program. I like the idea that a volume lasts for years. I have 5 children and growing up my family (my mother’s side) mostly spoke Spanish at home at English at work or school, . I have lost a lot of what I learned over the years.
If it doesn’t ‘t come with a workbook or sheets, what workbook or sheets are you using Missceegee?
There aren’t any workbooks. Older students copy the series as an additional way to learn. There is an e-book teacher guide that has the basics of how to work through the series, but it doesn’t have step by step plans. Each series should take at least a couple of weeks of work. You can request emailed PDF samples from Cherrydale.
missceegee I figured that by now, you have been using this for a bit. I would love to know what you think of it before I take the plunge. 😉 (I hope you see this)thepinkballerinaParticipant
We have started using Cherrydale Press Spanish, and my daughters and I love it! However I find we are not close to being ready in 2 weeks to move on to the next lesson. Not sure if are doing something wrong?LeslieParticipant
We are using Speaking Spanish with Miss Mason and Francois as well, all the kids enjoy it (ds7, ds5, dd3), but we don’t move very quickly. We started in September and are only on Series (lesson) 4! We also add in fun Spanish songs on Youtube, like Basho and Friends. I feel like at this stage, we’re enjoying the exposure and maybe we’ll ramp up next year.
So I think the Cherrydale program works with a 1st grader just fine.
And pinkballerina, you are not alone in moving slowly!PhoboParticipant
We’re doing their French, started in September, and also are just now working through series 4. We’ve done a number of things interspersed, like songs, favourite picture books in French, as well as the extras in the series. We’ve been enjoying it so far and do it as a family (2 – adult) although we don’t require anything from our young boys. They do like to sing the songs and say things like the days of the week though. My almost four year old loves to act out the series with us, but doesn’t really say much in French yet, although he really only started speaking at all about half a year ago, so I’m pretty impressed!
