I Want to Read

My students need 10 books of Aura to read in Spanish.

My Students

My students are born Americans but their heritage is of Latino background. I want them to know where they come from and who they are. Most of them can speak the language pretty well but most of them have never been exposed to real language as they do not have book to read or their parent cannot read themselves. I hope that with this book I will be able to open their mind to not only reading but their heritage.

My Project

My student will use this book to be inspired to read more and learn more about their heritage. I hope that by reading this book and others, they will create a passion for reading as well to discover people form their own back ground 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, Aura, 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 knowledgeable. 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.
