We are Teaching our kids Spanish with One Third Story Subscription Boxes!
Bilingual Kidspot is giving away a 3 month subscription of this amazing subscription to help you teach kids Spanish or French from One Third Stories! See the end of this post for details.
Imagine a story which starts in English and finishes in Spanish, or French, or another language. Bit by bit introducing new words and phrases throughout the book helping your child learn new vocabulary. This is how One Third Stories subscription for kids work.
This new and exciting subscription pack for little language learners aged 4-9yrs is now available in Spanish and French with more languages planned for the future. Each month, children receive a new book, along with the online audio, flashcards and educational activities and resources to help them learn their target language.
My two bilingual boys who are almost 4 and 6 have a love for languages, and books, so the One Third Stories Subscriptions have been a big hit in our house. Alex and Johnny, the founders of the company sent us a 3 month subscription in Spanish to review, and my kids absolutely love it.
A story which starts in one language, and finishes in another
I have read many bilingual books, but the books which come in the One Third Stories subscription pack are truly unique. In fact, I have never seen another book like it. Starting off in English, the first few pages of the book are like any other book. But then the fun starts.
Slowly, new words are carefully placed in Spanish. So, for example the first box includes the book “How the dinosaur got his shoes” The first word introduced is “zopattos” which means shoes in Spanish. Every time the word shoes is meant to be written it is replaced with the Spanish version.
Continuing the book on the next pages, the story follows a dinosaur trying to find the perfect pair of shoes. Colours and numbers are introduced, and written in Spanish replacing the English words. By the end of the book, half of what you are reading is in Spanish and you and your child have learned a whole lot of Spanish vocabulary without much effort.
The next boxes contain other exciting books which introduce different vocabulary and use more of the target language.
You can understand the book even if you don’t speak the language
These books are written so cleverly though, that if you don’t speak a word of the language, you will know what the replaced word is supposed to mean. Which is great for me, because I don’t speak much Spanish and I could understand what was happening in the story.
You can even listen to the audio of the book online, to make sure you have the right pronunciation, which again is good for me as my pronunciation is terrible. The audiobook also allows your children to read the book alone.
Activities enforce language learning
A glossary page can be found at the end of the book which goes over the new vocabulary you have learned while reading the story. And within the subscription pack there are educational activities such as flashcards, and games, using the new vocabulary to enforce the learning of the language.
The gift that keeps on giving
Subscriptions for kids are the perfect gift that keeps giving. Take the stress away from selecting books when they are already selected for you, and delivered to your door every month. Not only do these books make fantastic bedtime stories for kids, they are the perfect way to introduce a new language or encourage your child to learn your native tongue.
