What Students and Parents Are Saying About My Homeschool Spanish Classes

Read what some parents and students are saying about my Spanish classes.


"The Spanish class that Clara Stacko offers is wonderful. She worked one on one with my son to assure his success. I was impressed with how quickly he was able to translate full sentences after only a few months. Clara does a great job of incorporating fun games into the class, as well as an end of year fiesta! I highly recommend her Spanish class." ~Laura

"My son took two years of Spanish under Clara’s instruction. He has come away with a deeper understanding of the Spanish language and of languages in general. Clara made the classes interesting and my son looked forward to going. The games that they played cemented what he had learned and the restaurant experience at the end of each year was just icing on the cake.  Thank you Clara!" ~Julie

"Clara Stacko's Spanish class was fantastic!! My kids enjoyed it and are using Spanish at home all the time. She made it fun and they never felt pressured or stressed. They always looked forward to going. I recommend it highly." ~Dawn


"I love Mrs. Stacko! She is a good teacher and pushed me to do well. I love the games and the big dinner at the Spanish restaurant! I can't wait for her next class." ~Christopher

"I think this Spanish class is very informational. I learned a lot of words. Mrs. Stacko made it very fun!! Every few weeks we would have contests. At the end of the year we went to a Mexican restaurant. That was very fun since we got to order in Spanish. I highly recommend you try this class. It would be worth it!" ~Trace

The Story Travelers Bible (Review)

Review of The Story Travelers Bible

The Story Travelers Bible was written by Tracey Madder and illustrated by Tim Crecelius. The story begins with three children, Lana, Griffin, and Munch, who take a special bus journey through 85 Bible stories. Before getting on the bus, Lana admits that when she reads the Bible she tends to skip certain stories while Griffin shares that he doesn't read the Bible. Through their journey, not only do Lana, Griffin, and Munch learn about the Bible, but so will your young children. Although The Story Travelers Bible is recommended for children ages 4 - 8 years old, I am confident children as young as two would enjoy it as a read-aloud.

When I first began flipping through the pages, the first thing that stood out to me was how striking the illustrations were. Children will enjoy the vibrant colors throughout the book as each image coincides with each story.

Searching for a Spanish Curriculum? Check out Foreign Languages for Kids by Kids (Review)

Review written about this Spanish immersion program for students in Pre-K through upper elementary

It’s that time of the season, the time when homeschool parents begin researching homeschool curriculum in order to prepare for the next school year. Are you one of those parents? I am. Researching curriculum is one of my favorite things to do as a homeschool parent. I love the excitement of discovering a new book, software, etc. That is how I felt when I learned about Foreign Languages for Kids by Kids, a program used to teach Spanish to students as young as preschool through upper elementary age. Adults and older students can also benefit from this program.

Foreign Languages for Kids by Kids Spanish (Review)

A review about Foreign Languages for Kids by Kids which teaches students the Spanish Language. Written by

One of the best ways to learn a foreign language is by being immersed in that language. I remember when my nephew was a young boy of about 4 or 5 years old, the only language he knew was English. After spending a year or two in Puerto Rico, I was amazed at how well he could speak Spanish. I hope that someday my children will have the opportunity to spend some time in a Spanish-speaking country where they, too, can be immersed in the Spanish language. In the meantime, I am happy to have found a program, Foreign Languages for Kids by Kids, which teaches Spanish using an immersion approach.

Homeschool Mama Wonders, "Am I Coddling My Students?"

A homeschool mom shares her thoughts on trying to find a right balance between what might be coddling her students and helping them grow through challenges. By A Slice of Homeschool Pie.

The other day I found myself asking this question, "Do I coddle my students when it comes to their academic work?" Have you ever asked yourself this question? A couple of recent situations in our homeschool have made me ask this of myself.

I have read several blog posts or articles in the past in which the authors have suggested various methods to use in helping children accomplish their schoolwork successfully. I have used some of their advice with both of my children. For example, if my children (when younger) became frustrated over their math, I would have them stop and either take a break, or leave it until the next day to complete. I still believe that this method is great to use with younger children, but at what age should this method no longer be used?

Friendly Chemistry - Review

Review of the high school chemistry curriculum - Friendly Chemistry

The word chemistry has a way of sending cold chills down my spine, or at least it used to until I found Friendly Chemistry.

I spent a good portion of my summer researching through various chemistry curriculum. Friendly Chemistry stood out to me because of its title. I wondered how chemistry could ever be "friendly".  I was so intrigued that I read the two volume Teacher's Edition from cover to cover in just a handful of weeks. Below, I'd like to share with you my review of this high school chemistry course which can be used by both Christian and Secular families alike.

The Authors' Background (From Their Website):

This book was written by Joey and Lisa Hajda. Joey has a doctorate degree in veterinary medicine and a master's degree in secondary and higher education, curriculum, and instruction. He has taught science courses at the middle and high school levels for over 20 years, as well as at the local community college level.

Lisa has a bachelor's degree in veterinary science, a master's degree in elementary curriculum and instruction, and completed her coursework towards her doctorate in education.
