The Calico Spanish Methodology Leads to Student Success! Calico Spanish is designed to help your students enjoy learning Spanish. Level 1 develops a student’s receptive language skills using a variety of engaging, researchbased techniques. In Level 2, these same techniques guide your novice learners toward intermediate language skills. The curriculum relies predominantly on Tracy Terrell’s Natural Approach to language instruction, as well as integrating Stephen Krashen’s language acquisition theories and James Asher’s Total Physical Response (TPR) methods. Your students will learn Spanish by communicating in Spanish.

Immersion alone doesn’t teach language — your students need immersion by design.

Expand their world by interacting with the vibrant cultures of the Spanish-speaking world.

Children seem to learn language easily and naturally, but immersion alone is not enough. Students need fun, engaging and scaffolded instruction in order to gain lasting, level-appropriate language skills from an immersion environment.

You can’t really understand a language without understanding the cultures of the people who speak it. Calico Spanish lessons provide a variety of cultural competencies that are necessary for balanced multicultural education. In these lessons, your students will explore a number of Spanish-speaking cultures through exceptional children’s books, and traditional stories, games, and music.


Accurate input leads to accurate production. The patterns inherent in a Natural Approach curriculum promote accurate language production. As students receive consistent and accurate input they will naturally change off-target language. The lesson plans and teacher’s manual guide you step-by-step as you systematically introduce communicative language that fosters accuracy.


Inspire the attention that leads to acquisition.


Move your students systematically to successfully produce communicative language. A major goal of Calico Spanish is to encourage students to effectively communicate with simple sentences and useful phrases. Our lesson plans guide you in encouraging students to produce meaningful language. As students successfully use vocabulary in real-life contexts, they will gain confidence in their language skills and excitement about learning.

At Calico Spanish, we believe that the greatest impact on language learning is not intellectual ability, but engagement. Every child can learn Spanish, and we want to help you create the most motivating environment possible. Through energetic music, vibrant visuals, and colorful and interesting children’s literature, students and teachers will create fun learning experiences that focus on full language integration.

Calico Spanish Level 1 Engaging beginning students in grades K-5.

Cultivating a Love of Language

Foster Comprehension

Calico Spanish features a vibrant mix of activities and strategies that cater to your students’ particular learning needs and foster comprehension and communication. Children absorb language through observing gestures, visual aids, pantomime, and demonstrations. They comprehend more through audio cues, visual aids, and actions that stimulate the brain’s language acquisition centers. Finally, they have the opportunity to naturally communicate in Spanish as they engage in fun activities and sing along with our custom Mi guitarrí music resources.

Level 1 Classroom Set

Celebrate Communication

Calico students successfully communicate in Spanish! Through the concepts and vocabulary presented and reinforced with contextual clues and prior knowledge, students develop conversational skills by the end of Level 1. Interactive activities give each student opportunities to begin to communicate with their Spanish. And because this program makes Spanish so fun, students become comfortable using their newly acquired skills, gradually responding appropriately with more and more independent ideas. You’ll be amazed at how quickly children in your class will progress to meet learning objectives.

“I want my students to see that Spanish is used for everything, not just in the classroom. There is nothing else out there for fourth grade and under that teaches kids Spanish so well.” C. Medina — University Spanish Professor; K-4 Spanish Teacher, Illinois
