Reading in Language Class - BOOK GIVEAWAY!

On many occasions I have posted about My Spanish Classroom LibraryNovels are the main course of my curriculum, but free reading is the self selected dessert. 

As I have mentioned before I use my library for free choice reading at the beginning of class on Tuesdays & Thursdays for 5-15 minutes depending on the class level. We started 2nd trimester of Spanish 1 for 5 minutes and build in length as the levels progress. There is little accountability since the point is students doing extensive reading on their own. I only have them fill out this form for their own records so they remember what page they are on and if they have read a book yet already or not. 

As for implementation, I try and guide students to books in which they will feel successful. Students can sit anywhere in the room that they are able to focus. I just ask that their eyes stay on the page, and they they do not just flip around. For some classes who are highly distracted, I really encourage them to follow along with their finger. I set a Google timer, get out my own free reading book and we read for fun. 

Here are many more posts about free reading from this blog
