My goal is to create a small library of books in Spanish for our NES students for independent reading.


During the course of the week, students will have 60 minutes of independent reading (IR) where they are encouraged to read age-appropriate books of their own choosing. While we instruct our non-English speaking (NES) or limited English proficient (LEP) students in English language arts classes, it is preferred that their IR time is spent reading for enjoyment in the language of their choice.


Teachers can use that love of reading to bridge the gap between languages. Author Sandy Ruvalcaba Carrillo writes, "Choose materials that authentically represent students' language and culture. Offer a variety of books, both fiction and nonfiction, in the language(s) spoken by students. Choose books with which students can connect and encourage them and their families to be the creators of their own stories."
