"Reading is the best way to learn a new language". That sentence is key if you want to learn a new language.
I'm proud to say that my students are really bright and constantly seeing intellectual challenges.
I teach in a Spanish Immersion school where students learn math, science, and cultural studies completely in Spanish. Half of their academic day is spent immersed in the language, while the other half of the day is in English. My school is part of a very low income district where the resources are never plentiful enough. We must constantly supplement the instruction to keep our students engaged and active in the learning process.
I have a very limited Spanish literature resources to introduce to my 6th graders and 2nd graders(next school year). I want them to be in the habit of reading, feeling the curiosity for the stories. It makes me so happy to see that even though they struggle through,they never give up. I plan to use these resources to continue and will allow students to discuss literature,and even debate, topics in a different language. These materials will given them access to thousands of new words.
Giving students the opportunity of reading new material in a new language is both challenging and exciting.
This will allow them to expand their vocabulary in two language. Now days, being able to read and speak more than one language is growing ever more important and opens a multitude of doors for my students to have a brilliant future.
