Mrs. Smith from Tampa FL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

¡Ahora, leemos! / Now, let's read!

Help me give my students access to Ahora, a Level 2 Scholastic Spanish Magazine, so that they can contextualize their learning and learn more about Spanish culture at the same time!

My Students

This is the FIRST YEAR EVER for having Spanish 2 at the middle school level for three schools in my district, and my school is one of them! My students will cover a variety of topics, and we need resources to match!

My students need to be able to contextualize their learning through various sources.

Sometimes when we learn a new language, we learn the vocab, we learn the grammar, but it can be hard to see the, "So what can I do now?" at the end of a unit. We have so many new skills that we start working on in Spanish 1, but need to be able to keep working on those skills as we transition to the next level.

My Project

As my middle school students embark on their journey into Spanish 2 for the first time at our school, one of our biggest goals is to make sure they are able to use what they have learned. In the past, we have done practice with vocabulary and grammar, then tested, and maybe did a reading or listening activity here or there. When you are learning another language, you want to know that you can connect with it in context. With this magazine subscription to Ahora, my students will have time to grapple with Spanish in a much more meaningful way than just filling in the blanks and basic vocabulary.

"The limits of my language are the limits of my world." These magazines will not only provide my students with access to more authentic uses of the Spanish language, but also to the rest of the world.

This magazine could be what sparks that interest that makes a student go from taking just two years of a language for a graduation requirement, to becoming a life-long learner who studies abroad to refine his or her skills in Spanish.
