Magic School Bus- All About Earth DVD GIVEAWAY!

As my kids get older, I still want them to watch movies in Spanish.  The problem: they aren't as interested in watching Dora and Diego dubbed in Spanish.

I love Spanish movies because I feel it gets them comfortable with different vocabulary and topics than they hear from me.  But, there are only so many topics on Dora or Thomas the Train.  Those are geared for preschoolers.

But, The Magic School Bus movies have been our solution.  When asked to review a new DVD by Magic School Bus, I jumped on it.

My kids, ages almost 9, 7, 5 and 2 all were mesmerized when they watched The Magic School Bus: All about Earth.  Learning science and Spanish at the same time is a big plus.  We are starting a unit on volcanoes, so what better way to introduce some of the Spanish vocabulary for volcanoes in a fun way.  It includes 3 fun episodes that can all be dubbed in Spanish.  Your kids will learn about seeds, volcanoes and air pressure!  I highly recommend this DVD!

My kids are actually a little beyond the Magic School Bus stage, so I'm not entering, but I did want to chime in with my trick for encouraging TV watching in Spanish. My kids are restricted in how much screen time (TV/video games/computer) they get, but shows watched in Spanish are "freebies" and don't count towards their total screen time for the day. They're still not allowed to plop down in front of the TV all day, but they can watch an episode of a favorite cartoon and still have a little screentime for computer programming or whatever else they want to do.

My grandson is almost seven years old and is learning a small amount of Spanish. As he lives in Houston, it is important that he knows some Spanish. This would be such a great way for him to learn some more Spanish. He is also very interested in volcanoes. So, this would be the perfect DVD for him to watch and learn.

I homeschool my 5 kiddos and despite not remembering more than a few sentences in Spanish from high school I am trying to learn/teach my kids Spanish. I found your blog looking for fun ways to keep them engaged in learning and love the idea of Magic School Bus in Spanish! Thanks! - Baby Names said...

I love your new blog theme! It's very nice. And a lot easier to read than old one, Actually.

This is an awesome way to introduce kids to Spanish. I will surely check on this one! Spanish is one of the best languages I've ever heard, though I don't have an extensive knowledge of it.

Films are a great tool for learning Spanish, and this seems likes a useful stepping stone for those kids who are still a bit too young to watch some more 'grown-up' movies. Thanks!
