In this post: If you’re learning Spanish at home, you have to check out these amazing Spanish homeschooling resources. *Post contains affiliate links*
When I first decided to homeschool my children in Spanish, I never would have guessed how DIFFICULT it would be to find Spanish homeschooling resources. It’s actually what motivated me to make my own online Spanish courses and curriculum! I just couldn’t stand googling for hours, and coming up empty handed. So, I decided to take all those hours of research, and my experience as a Spanish educator, and do a round up of some of my favorite Spanish homeschooling curricula and courses.
These resources can be used if you homeschool, unschool, world school, public school, Montessori school, Waldorf School…there is something for everyone! Homeschooling doesn’t always need to mean your children don’t go to any other school, it can also mean you like to do some intentional learning at home.

This full year, literature based Spanish curriculum is one of my favorites. I love the thoughtfulness that Emma put into every aspect of Beautiful Mundo: from the curated book list, to the detailed parent guide and weekly lessons.
Beautiful Mundo is a secular, literature-based Spanish immersion curriculum for families to learn together at home through literature, music, movement, poetry, play, and exploration of the Spanish-speaking world. Built on the foundational belief that children acquire language through meaningful interaction and play, Beautiful Mundo focuses on finding the joy in bilingual education and fostering a love for learning. Written for both monolingual English families and bilingual families alike.

This is a great choice for families that want the language input to come from an outside source. You can still learn Spanish right alongside your children, but the pressure isn’t on your shoulders. If you are feeling nervous, or overwhelmed, but still really want your children to learn another language, this is an amazing program! Even though this is a screen-based online Spanish course, you still get some fun ways to bring it off the screen and into play at home.
