A Mr. Rogers Approach to Homeschooling
I watched the movie A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, about Mr. Rogers and his relationship with a journalist who was sent to interview him. The movie was the sponsor of this podcast. It is rated PG and is a drama that is not fast-paced. For that reason, I think young children would be bored. However, I highly recommend it for you as a homeschooler. It is available for streaming now and I would love for you to watch it to get the most out of this podcast episode.
Speaking of sponsors, I want to thank my sponsor for this episode: FabuLingua.
Helping your child learn a second language, especially when you don’t speak it, can seem intimidating!
The vocabulary lists, the grammar drills… there’s a better way. The magic of children’s stories makes it fun and easy for your child to learn a second language like Spanish.
The most important factor in learning a new language is how much ‘input’ of that new language gets absorbed. It doesn't have to be perfectly understood – just comprehensible.
That’s where FabuLingua comes in. Their app provides a huge amount of written and spoken ‘comprehensible input’ through beautiful, interactive children’s stories.
FabuLingua was created for families who are seeking a convenient, effective tool to support their language learning goals – in a fun and effortless way. FabuLingua kids don’t ask to ‘learn’ with the app – they ask to ‘play’ with it!
Their mission is to make it fun and accessible to children, so that learning another language is something they are excited to do!
New stories are released each month and you can explore your first story free. Look for FabuLingua on the App Store or Google Play Store. That’s F-A-B-U-L-I-N-G-U-A. FabuLingua – magical stories that teach kids Spanish.
