Overview

This language teaching picture book for boys and girls uses a proven method to teach Italian vocabulary to English-speaking children. Kids can open the book to any right-hand page and they will see two vertical columns. The column at left shows pictures; the right-hand column is a word list in Italian—a label for each picture. After studying the page and pronouncing the words out loud several times, kids cover the pictures with the book's front-cover flap and recite each word as they try to recall its picture. Next, they uncover the pictures, but cover the word list, using the book's flap. With the pictures to prompt them, they must try to repeat the correct words to match the pictures that they see. Words and pictures are grouped according to a series of themes that include On the Farm, In the Classroom, At the Zoo, At the Beach, and others.

    Hide & Speak Italian

    Great interactive concept and nicely organized product. A nice number of words for younger elementary children fit into workable categories. Problem? Just one! It's plastic pages with blanks for words invite you to write your guess on the lines provided. The two types of pens we used did not erase! Very disappointing! They didn't mention what to write with. We continue use the book as a text with a group of 7 children who consult it and record new words that fit into the pre-existing categories. They don't mind that it doesn't work as expected. We didn't try with crayons. Maybe old-fashioned wax crayons would work. I just ordered two more for new students who wanted them. Another idea? Put a strip of paper there and write your guesses on paper! We'll try it this week!
