A Comprehensive List of Spanish Curricula

Spanish Curricula

Below is a comprehensive list of Spanish curricula for homeschoolers. It is a list of materials and resources for families who are homeschooling their children bilingually or in Spanish.

IF you are looking for programs and resources for teaching your children to speak Spanish, visit my Master List of Spanish Learning Resources.

This list will be continually updated and made available for you to reference with ease via a button in my sidebar.

For a while now I've been thinking about all the requests I get on a constant basis for Spanish curricula. And even though I have shared many of them here on MommyMaestra, there really needs to be one single place that parents can go to and find what is available. Since I do not use a Spanish curriculum with my kids, I really hope that those of you who are homeschooling in Spanish, or are bilingual ed teachers, will share your knowledge and resources with the other families visiting this site.

By clicking on the title of the product, you will be taken to the publisher's/company's website where you can purchase it or read more about it.

Because some of the materials have already been reviewed on MommyMaestra, if you click on the word "REVIEW" next to the title, you will be taken to review article so you can read our thoughts about the product.

Items with the word "RECOMMENDED" next to them were submitted/presented at the suggestion of someone else. Some link to reviews.

  1. Would you please highlight the Estrellita "review"...Thank you.

    1. Done. The reason it wasn't highlighted before is because the last time I checked the links, their website was down.

  2. Thank you for offering this list! We have produced a Preschool through sixth grade literature based complete curriculum in Spanish with Spanish teacher guides. You can see it at and we also have a Spanish homeschool blog.

  3. Hola again,Monica,
    Please disregard the previous form i submitted. I realized lemonhass had its prices in mexican pesos, not usd. I think we can afford them now. your website is great. i wish we had more resources here in manila, so sad to see the kids of mexicans not speaking a word of spanish. God bless!

  4. Love your site and the fact that you have compiled such great resources. I have created a few products that might work well for homeschoolers for learning culture. I made them for the preschool Spanish classes that I teach out of my home. One is a bundle for the 21 Spanish speaking countries (maps, flags, color by number flags, 6-8 colorful photos of each country, interesting facts, and more.
    Parents can download a free sample of it here for Mexico and Spain:
    For Día de los enamorados, I just made a 40 page lesson plan to teach Spanish love expressions. It also includes links to fun songs, a Go Fish game, art projects, printable Spanish decorations, etc.
    There is a free sample of some of the decorations here (the full product is more tailored towards younger students - this has some decorations for high school students in it as well, but it will give you an idea of what it's like):
    Thanks for taking a look!

    Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

  5. Thank you SO much for sharing these resources! I have a 3 year old and a 1 year old and am raising my kids bilingually. I was home schooled and am so excited to homeschool my kids! But since I was home schooled completely in English, I've been trying to find resources so I can homeschool in both languages simultaneously. These is so helpful!

  6. Hi,
    I am sending this twice because the site timed out. Please add Colegio Hebron to your list. It is a complete Spanish curriculum set up against the SEP standards and offered in video format with downloadable PDFs. The parent can choose to buy per subject or per the whole year of curriculum. All curriculum has accompanying videos where teachers explain the full subject matter and then the students work from the books. For someone looking to do truly bilingual homeschooling as in splitting the subject matter, this is the perfect solution. It is also from a Christian world view and incorporates scripture through all subjects, but also has a Bible subject. The program spans from PreK all the way to HS. The organization is comprised of professional teachers and the curriculum has been continuously revised over the last 20 years, so it is very sound and very hands on. www.colegiohebron on the site you can check out sample videos and pdf book sample downloads. Perfect for anyone wanting to split the subjects 50% taught in English and 50% taught in Spanish. Cheers

  7. I think you misunderstood me, probably because I didn't clearly state, but Colegio Hebron is 100% in espanol, simply, I will be using it to fulfill 50% of my daughters subjects (Spanish, Math and Science) while Ill use English to fulfill the other 50%. This is possible because you can purchase the courses individuals, and you are not committed to buying the whole grade package. However, just to clarify, other than an English elective, the program is K-12 and is 100% in espanol, following SEP standards and from a Christian worldview. I hope this is helpful to others, I researched for something like this for two years, came to your list many times, but I really wanted something that had a video component as she can improve her listening, yet I don't have to actually do all the teaching... here it is! I had to write you to add it because we are nearly half way through Prek and it is just wonderfully developed curriculum, from the videos to the workbook, tests and teacher plans, it is just really well prepared by clearly professional teachers. Hope it helps others out there on their hunt for the perfect homeschool curriculum for a dual language household. Cheers, Heather

    1. Good to know. Thanks, Heather!

    2. My family are missionaries in Nicaragua. We are working in a community where mist of the children do not go to school. How can we order all grades and use it to start a school for them?

    3. Rblay - You'll have to order directly from their website...

  8. ¡Gracias por toda esta información!!!! ¡Es muy útil! Uso Sonlight, pero necesito material en español, especialmente de lectura, ortografía y gramática. ¡Gracias! ¿Conocen algún material en español adecuado para enseñar historia latinoamericana a niños de primaria (4to, 5to o 6to)?

  9. Educazion website isn't working.

    1. Thanks for letting me know! I updated it.

  10. I see that Santillana is listed. Do you have experience with it? Trying to gather information about it apart from the website. Thanks!

    1. I do not, however, it has a very good reputation. Several of the most well known Latino children's authors (Alma Flor Ada & F. Isabel Campoy) have books published by Santillana.

  11. I am thrilled to find your website! I went from having no information as how to start bilingual homeschooling, to being overwhelmed! I will be starting preschool with my son this coming fall and would like to have a structured format, for us both, all in Spanish for the year to solidify his Spanish. Then move into bilingual when he starts kindergarten. I see you recommend Educazion. Have you schooled with them? Or is there a better suggestion for us? Thank you for sharing!

    1. Hi! So glad you found helpful information on my site. I have not schooled with Educazion. The recommendation came from a MommyMaestra reader. If you have not read her recommendation, please click on the link next to its listing, or copy and paste the URL at the bottom of my response.
      I personally recommend Monarca Language for Spanish preschool. They have a remarkable program - you can find samples of their work here on MommyMaestra by simply searching for Monarca Language.

  12. Buenos Dias Monica! Me encanta tu website! Soy terapeuta de lenguaje y he empezado a colaborar con preescolares en mi ciudad que es bastante diversa y tiene muchos hispanohablantes. Me gustaría ayudar los preescolares en el distrito escolar donde trabajo adoptar un programa bilingue para que los niños no pierden su lengua materna, español. ¿Conoce un curriculum para escuelas bilingues de 3 a 5 años?

  13. Hola! Mi currículo favorito para preescolar es Monarca Language. ¡Está muy bien hecho! Ready Rosie también es bueno.

  14. I am in california my son was in a dualities emersion program , (spanish) I am home schooling him for third grade and on god willing, i also have a 5 year old we are bilingual ( my son knows how to write read in spanish all his subjects where in spanish science math reading writing etc. he only had english class for 1 hour 4 day a week at school) I am very overwhelmed and confused about curriculum , I want to keep the spanish but obviously since we are in the US we need to be doing english materials, so i was thinking of doing spanish : math, and actual spanish like reading and writing then the english portion : language arts, science , bible , history
    i am just very confused on where to start the only subject i have locked down is math and science I have not idea what to use iv been watching youtube videos , but i find it difficult i don't know where to start does any one have tips? i want to do this bilingually !

    1. Hi, Cristina. It sounds like you really do have a good idea on how to do it. Since they are Spanish dominant, I would choose three or four subjects to teach completely in Spanish, and do the rest in English. Then next year, change one of the Spanish subjects into English. If Spanish is their dominant language, most experts recommend that you go ahead and teach them to read and write in that language. They'll then learn English later by transferring the skills they used to learn Spanish reading and writing.
