Bilingual is Better

SB Finds

Bebe Bilingual Flashcards {Giveaway}

Being a monolingual household with bilingual aspiration requires a lot of tools. Any chance I have to expose the kids to my family’s language is imperative to our success. We love using Spanish language media; television and mobile apps have been invaluable in creating a bilingual environment while my husband is at work. But, for times when I don’t want my toddler consumed in technology, having access to educational tools that support bilingualism is another avenue of reinforcing our SpanishRead More ...

Colorful Fall Art and Science Leaf Activity

When it was forecasted that Huracán Sandy, was eminently going to strike our area, the first thing we did was go out and collect the beautiful fall leaves that colored our barrio.

Feeling – and looking – Like a Princesa! {Giveaway}

In February my daughter witnessed one of the life events that has made the most impact in her: a wedding. Ever since then, she’s been obsessed with the ceremony and white “princess” dresses. I had no idea when we were sitting in the chapel, with her on my lap, and me whispering in her ear explanations for what was happening in the ceremony – the aras, el ramo, los lazos, los anillos, la vela, el beso – that it wouldRead More ...

A Review of the Movie ‘Lincoln’ from the POV of a Teen

Editor’s note: Michael, a 13-year-old homeschooled teen, is the son of Rachel Matos, one of our occasional contributors and fellow blogger. He had been anxiously awaiting the premiere of “Lincoln,” so we decided it would be great to encourage him to attend an advance screening and give us his personal review.  A year ago, I heard that Steven Spielberg was going to do a movie about my favorite president Abraham Lincoln. I’d been excited ever since. When they released theRead More ...

Gamification in Education and Language-Learning

Just about everything we do in our daily routine has been turned into an electronic game – childcare, cleaning, cooking, fitness, sports and even stealing cars!  Not that we steal cars routinely, but I think you get what I mean.  This sort of attention to gaming has been strongly redirected toward the arena of education, and rightly so. Watch any gamer in action and you’ll see a firsthand demonstration of how the learning curve actually works.  Because video games canRead More ...
