I want to Learn how to Read in Spanish.

My students need 35 books for Spanish class as we want to read but do not have enough in class to do so. We want to learn more Spanish by reading.

My Students

My students are in a Spanish I class. They want to learn more Spanish and one way to do it is by reading in the language. Most of my students have been exposed to Spanish on the street, but never been exposed to real language as they do not have books to read in the Spanish language. I hope that with this book I will be able to open their mind to not only reading but the culture of a Spanish-speaking country

My Project

My student will use this book to be inspired to read more and learn more about how important heritage and sense of belonging is for people. I hope that by reading this book and others, they will create a passion for reading as well to discover people from different background and learn who they are. Reading will talk to them and make them think who they are and what they have done. Reading is one of the most important keys to open a child mind to other things. They want to learn, they want to do better but they do not know how. I hope that with this book, I will be the instrument that opens their eyes to reading and to the world. This experience in time will make a big change to their life. They will also learn about their culture, proper grammar and some of them will learn how to read too. They will learn new words that will expand their vocabulary make them more knowledge. They can also write about what they read using their new words. What else can be say about reading; reading is the key to imagination and imagination is the key to life. We need a class set of this book!
