I have gotten everything planned out for DD's grade 1 curric. BUT  DH would like me to add some spanish into the mix as well.  She will be 5 years old so I want something fun and easy enough for her to grasp.  She works good with workbooks and also loves computer time so we could go either way.  Suggestions?

I have heard great things about Rosetta stone but I'm not sure if that is younger grades at all. I have not yet ventured to a foreign language yet. Bump :)

I too have heard great things about Rosetta Stone, and I am sure we will go with that later, but as you said, I am not sure how it is for younger grades... :)  123 TeachMe is looking pretty good :)

 BUMP- i want the same thing. I have searched a bit for free online spanish but have not found anything I love. If I cant my backup plan is to just search for youtube videos for kids learning spanish and checkout eng/span kids books and work on basic nouns and phrases. Like household objects and things like 'hello', my name is, whats up,

I'm not firmiliar with anything either :(  Do you know anyone that speaks spanish?   They could help?   Maybe you could just start out with simple words on index cards?

those baby toys that talk in spanish and english can be used by older kids.  My 6yr. likes the songs and phrases on the Leapster english/spanish radio.  We quiz each other and then press the button to self check.
