Designed for Spanish, dual language, and bilingual classes, Fonética y gramática for grades K–2, provides Spanish poems, stories, and nonfiction, linked to instructional materials and support. Flexible purchase options allow customers to purchase the program either as print only or print with online access.
The program is organized into three levels, ¡Comienza! (Kindergarten), ¡Sigue! (Grade 1), and ¡Avanza! (Grade 2).
