Help me give my students a book that they don't want to close! These books have translations on the side of the text and were written with the intent for a second language reader to relate and understand!
Hola! My name is Sasha Hendricks and I have just about wrapped up my very first year of teaching Spanish. I have the privilege to impact the sweetest students ever! The overall culture of the school where I am at is so warm and close knit, I Instantly felt like I belonged. What I love about the students is that they are learners, many of them whom have been apart of their small community since they were little, really haven't had the opportunity to be exposed to different cultures around the world. They always have intriguing questions and seem hungry to learn more. The eagerness that they bring to class overwhelms me with joy and sparks more ideas and projects to be able to better help them understand the language and culture even more!
Every one of my students have different capabilities, talents and strengths, by exposing them to a different culture, I believe it can motivate them to use their individual skills in a new way that they have never exercised before.
It is my goal to incorporate individual and group reading in my classes next year. In order to accomplish this task, I will need some help!
Starting out I was very determined to have my students using the target language in every way possible, that being through speaking, writing, reading, music, videos, even communicating through charades at times. I was given a novel by a seasoned Spanish teacher, that my students were interested in and kept up with the story line. I have recently been reading about comprehensible input and want to start a classroom library full of novels that students will want to read.
My kids loved the story, the historical viewpoint, and most of all, the fact that they could just read on their own!
I find that often students are wary of reading in Spanish because they don't know what a word means. These books have translations on the side of the text and were written with the intent for a second language reader to understand just what was happening.
The novels I have chosen have story lines that teenagers can relate to in their personal and daily life. I have also chosen books that are in English that were written by Spanish authors that exposes them to poems, history, and cultural differences and similarities in the lives of young people in Latin America and the U.S.
