Handwriting, reading and of course, 1st grade spelling are among the basic things your child learns in school.

Online Spanish Classes!
Spanish is the most common second language in the world and the most popular language taught in the United States schools.

In high school I spent time in France after completing my required classes in French. Once I returned home I rarely ever spoke it again. I regret that I have lost that language. My son does attend preschool Spanish, but I will push to keep him exposed to the Spanish culture and language as he gets older so that doesn't happen to him.

The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend. - Henri L. Bergson
Teaching is pointless when behavioral objectives are not highlighted and employed. They are performance indicators that determine the effects of learning.
