Both of my seventh grade bilingual classes are filled with students who either love to read or struggle to read. Earlier this year I was eager to get my students reading and my unit partner and I decided to use Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone to kick off the school year. I was excited to start off with this book because I was only a tad bit younger than my students when I started reading the same book and fell in love with it. Being a bilingual classroom, it is important to develop my students reading abilities in both English and Spanish. However, Spanish language arts is not as emphasized as English language arts is, and books in Spanish are limited in our school library. Finding a class set of books in Spanish is very difficult. Having a class set of books in Spanish will emphasize how important it is for our students to read in Spanish. Usually, class sets are in English, leaving out ELL students. By providing engaging reading material in Spanish, students will receive culturally relevant texts, include all students, and reinforce the importance of building bi-literacy in our students. Through "Una arruga en el tiempo," my students will be able to explore different literary themes and conflicts, as well as build their Spanish literacy. Once done with the book, we hope to be able to take the students on a field trip to enjoy the film. After we will write a compare and contrast essay, where students will point out the differences between the book and the film.
