About

Hola. My name is Lidia Barbosa. I am the creator and author of Kinder Alphabet. The Bilingual Teacher Clubhouse is my newest creation.

This website will be a collaborative community of teacher authors with a common goal of providing Spanish resources for bilingual children in daycare, public school and the homeschool setting. This site will be the central location to finding Spanish resources and blogging authors.

As we all know, Bilingual Education Teachers have very limited resources. We usually work very long hours and take work home with us. We have to use the materials that our schools provide and then translate them to fit the needs of our students. We also do a lot of research online in search for ideas. The only thing we ever find are English resources that we have to.... yes, you guessed it-- we have to translate, translate and translate some more. Many of us even make our own materials.

Well, this blog was created to provide Spanish resources for Bilingual Education teachers. It is our hope that you are able to find ideas and resources that you are able to use in your classrooms. We would like to help you decrease frustration, working long hours, translating or spending your weekends and holidays working at school. No more teacher burnout. Sit back, relax and browse through our site for ideas. Please keep in mind that this is a new site and we will work hard to add new ideas and resources.

Please support our authors by leaving positive comments in their posts. We would also love it if you would join the club by following our site and taking our blog button. Do not forget to visit our author's individual pages and following there as well.



¡Hasta pronto!

  2. This is a great website! As a mother of two bilingual boys I know how difficult is when we run out of ideas. I'll share it on my website and my business FB page :-)

  3. I'm so glad I found this site! I'm going to start homeschooling my 3 kids and want to formally teach them Spanish, and progress into a more rigorous program. Spanish is my native language but my husband doesn't speak any, therefore we end up speaking in English mostly. I would love your thoughts/input on a good curriculum that I could use for a 7, 5 and 3 yo boys.

  4. Hi everyone! Congratulations for this bilingual club house! It is a good idea to allow children to know another language and help them to be bilingual. Nowadays it is a "must" to speak at leat 2 languages wherever we live and whatever we do as a job. As a children author, I thought about writing stories that would be a good support for children to learn another language or improve their linguistic knowledge. So maybe my first bilingual book will interest you : "Who's there? / ¿Quién hay ahí?"
    Blurb:
    Bilingual edition English - Spanish
    Lola meets some strange animals while she is walking in the forest. They are hiding from her. Will Lola guess who they are?
    When you play the guessing games with Lola in this short story you will also be learning about another language. From 4 years old and upward.

    Edición bilingüe Inglés - español
    Lola se encuentra con animales extraños cuando pasea por el bosque. Se esconden de ella. ¿Adivinará Lola qué animales son?
    Cuando juegas a las adivinanzas con Lola en este cuento, también aprenderás cosas sobre otros idiomas. A partir de 4 años.

    Until later I wish you a great sunny day!

    PS:
    Please do not give me a bad grade if I made some grammar or syntax errors in English because my mother tongue is French.
