My students need 20 books for our classroom library by Spanish and Latin-American authors, including "Cool Salsa: Bilingual Poems on Growing up Latino in the United States" and "Leyendas de Espana".
We love to read, but we need more books by Spanish authors, at our level, and in our language! I teach 6th and 7th grade Spanish language arts in a Spanish immersion program at a diverse urban charter school.
As the teacher of the first two groups of students in the Spanish immersion program to pass through our middle school, our Spanish literature resources are scarce, but my students love to read. I always catch my students reading wonderful adolescent and children's literature in English, and I'd love to help them have the same love for Spanish! We currently have just enough books for everyone to read one, but we definitely need more variety of genres, levels, and themes. For independent reading time, they show lots of interest in English books translated into Spanish, but they don't know how wonderful the world of authentic Spanish children's literature is!
We need more books by Spanish authors for independent reading time. Books by Spanish and Latin American authors such as Garcia Marquez, Julia Alvarez, Sandra Cisneros and Carlos Ruiz Zafron will help me introduce my students to Spanish and Hispanic cultures and literary traditions, while greatly improving their Spanish language skills. They are already almost fluent speakers of Spanish, and I'd love for you to help instill in them a love of reading in Spanish and help improve their reading fluency.
You will make it possible for my students to get lost in an imaginary world, identify with a character, and be taken away by a book, all in their second language!
