Free Online Spanish Curriculum to Use at Home (Where to Find It)

Inside: A guide to finding free Spanish curriculum, online. 

We just got the announcement from the President of Peru: classes are suspended indefinitely. This probably means everything will shift to distance learning our entire school year, which runs March – December.

I’ve always tossed the idea of homeschooling around, but for the moment we had chosen a local Montessori school so I can work, and the kids can be fully immersed in Spanish.

Well… like so many of our plans this year, that idea has been turned on its head. We are scrambling to see what we will do instead.

As I’ve researched a new plan, I came across multiple sites with online Spanish curriculum and materials. Whether or not they exactly fit my homeschooling philosophy, they are definitely a good starting point, and they are all free and online!

(If you are a homeschooler looking to teach your kids Spanish, you can check out my PreK-Early Elementary Spanish curriculum, my Free Spanish Starter Kits for Kids, or this post reviewing Spanish curriculum for homeschoolers.)

WHERE TO FIND FREE ONLINE SPANISH CURRICULUM: A GUIDE

CALMEX

CAL (Center for Applied Linguistics) is an initiative for both Spanish and English learning for kids. According to the site, “CAL’s current mission is to promote language learning and cultural understanding by serving as a trusted source for research, resources, and policy analysis.”

On CALMEX portion of the site (sponsored by Mexico), you can find free Spanish books and materials for grades 1-6. These include math, language, history, science, and more, and they’re all colorful books with a mix of workbook and hands-on activities. So far I am really impressed, and think this could be so helpful for parents who need some guidance for teaching in Spanish!

Here are some peeks into what the books like inside:

If you are teaching kids, you will be have to do a little work to teach on their level, but these materials are especially useful because they’re available as black and white printables you can download and use right away.

    Here is a preview of what the materials look like inside:

    MAGUARÉ

    Those this site is not any sort of complete curriculum, Maguaré would make a good complement for a Spanish literacy and language program. There are online books, rhymes, tongue twisters, games, and songs, gathered by the Colombian Ministry of Culture.

    1. Thanks for these! I noted them in April but am coming back to them more seriously now as we get closer to the start of the school year here. It’s been so hard to find materials geared towards kids already fluent in Spanish so I’m grateful for these leads and hope I can adapt some for kindergarten (looks like most start grade 1).
