I have the joy of teaching Spanish as a foreign language to 7th and 8th graders. My students have incredible imaginations and love not only storytelling in class but reading different stories in Spanish.
My students have so much fun telling new and exciting stories and creating new characters using the language they're acquiring in class.
Our focus on storytelling and reading in addition to conversation and games assists my students in contributing to a positive class culture where they naturally acquire language.
Research says that one of the best ways to learn language is within the context of a book. These books are at the perfect level for my beginning students to learn Spanish while having fun reading stories. FVR stands for free voluntary reading, and we will begin it next semester.
The students will have free choice of which books they would like to read and conference about in smaller groups.
These books in the target language of Spanish are the perfect level for the students and are fun and engaging. Students will spend the first 15 minutes of class several times a week reading in Spanish. The idea is to inspire them to learn the language through stories that are both fun and written with a level of Spanish they can understand as novice to mid-level learners.
