¡Hola! from the Spanish classroom…
I am very excited to start another school year with all of my amiguitos in Reading! This year I plan to incorporate more authentic texts in my teaching of Spanish. Translated from teacher speak, that means that I will be using more music, internet memes, advertisements, and short texts written by Spanish speakers for Spanish speakers. Older students in particular will learn and use many strategies for understanding – or getting the big idea of – a text even when they don’t understand every word. Students will also do more “real things” with their Spanish this year, such as reading a map and writing about geography.
