Cuentos conmigo consists of five main elements
Meet Mateo, Marisol and their sweet pup Churro. Follow along through the seasons as they embark on adventures exploring the natural world, supporting their community, and nurturing family traditions. By creating stories that gradually weave in more and more Spanish, children are able to decode new words and phrases using context clues.
Start out reading the bilingual version in English and Spanish, and work your way up to the full Spanish version each lesson! You’ll also have QR codes to listen to each story read completely in Spanish by a native speaker.
Each story also includes illustrated backgrounds and puppets to help you bring your cuentos to life!
cabecitas y corazones
This bilingual curriculum encourages your little one to use their minds and their hearts as they engage in hands-on learning experiences. With crafts, nature study, movement games, and more – your child will feel supported and inspired as they learn Spanish.
en la cocina
One of the greatest ways to create a routine with your young children, is to involve food! A large part of this course revolves around time in the kitchen, trying new recipes and making yummy treats to enjoy while you read your stories and work with your hands. Every lesson provides multiple theme-based recipes to try with your little ones.
gentle nature study
Engage more with the natural world with gentle nature prompts and lessons. By observing the world more closely, you can introduce key elements of nature study to your young children, like wonder, patience, and observation.
songs and poems
Learning songs and memorizing short verses with young children is an incredibly powerful language learning tool. Each lesson will provide you with nature based canciones y poemas to learn with your little ones. You will have also handy QR codes with native Spanish speaker audio guides to help you learn while you listen.
How does it work?
Learning language through context clues and real life experiences
Children are masters at decoding language. Cuentos Conmigo was created to help nurture a home environment where children naturally learn Spanish through context clues and real life experiences, while exploring the natural world around them.
By putting hands-on learning at the forefront of this curriculum, we got rid of the boring worksheets and found a new way for families to practice Spanish at home.
Instead of direct instruction that is easily forgotten, your children will learn by listening, and doing. Their language learning will be directly tied to core memories of connection with their family. Does it get any better than that?

Who am I?
I’m Naomi Noyes. A Spanish teacher, twin mamá, forest school educator, and lover of all things nature. Seeing families teach their kids Spanish at home fires me up. I believe in outside-the-box language education that gets children off a screen and into the natural world.
So, I got to work applying my near-decade’s-worth of Spanish teaching experience, and created engaging online Spanish courses for families who want a hands-on curriculum to help them take their language learning outside.
