The winners are: #8 SIMONE AND #3 ADRIANA
I was so excited to try out Susy Dorn's products. We received Sal y Pimienta DVD and CD to review. Let me start telling you about the CD.
Things I love about Susy's music
-Fun, catchy music that covers a wide variety of topics (beyond colors and shapes!). Some of the topics include what foods you put salt and pepper in while you cook, a crazy lady who does all the chores in her house, a song about all the insects and animals with spots, and a space exploring all the different planets. These are all on the CD I reviewed.
-There is a lot of rhyming, great for getting my girls to recognize rhyming in Spanish, preparing them to start phonics in Spanish. I love the song about all the animals playing instruments that rhyme with their names.
-They use more advanced vocabulary, but there is repetition and simple wording, so it is easy to learn and remember the lyrics.
-My children have memorized the songs very quickly. I was surprised when my daughter could sing an entire song (using gestures) after hearing it only 3 times.
The Susy Dorn DVD Sal y Pimienta uses the same techniques she uses in her immersion program. She uses puppets and exaggerated gestures to communicate only in Spanish. I have to admit that the clown nose, mime and exaggerated gestures seemed a little strange to me at first. But I was so impressed with how effectively they teach! My girls memorized the music so fast after watching the DVD, especially my 3 year old. It really captures their attention and they love it.
The same immersion technique works with the books. The book that goes along with each CD/DVD shows the children what is sung. They don't need translation because it is all shown to them through pictures.
