This year is crazy. Crazy beyond crazy, beyond crazy, but you know what is even crazier? The fact that teachers are making it work. Whether it was last spring when many of us went home on a Friday and never saw our students in person again, to the 20-21 school year that is just a whole new ball game, it’s a crazy year and teachers are working crazy hard! One of the questions I see coming up often in Facebook groups and online is how to do free voluntary reading (FVR) during distance learning. I thought it may be helpful to round up some ways to do digital reading in Spanish class!
Building your Digital FVR Library
There are quite a few great options out there to share with your students! I shared a few of them in my 5 Ways to Build Your FVR Library for FREE post. Here are the ones that I think fit best from that post, as well as a few more options I found while researching for this post!
- Revista Literal
- CI Non Fiction Library
- International Children’s Digital Library
- Storybooks Minnesota
- The Fable Cottage
- FVR Library Collab – I love this set of editable Slides from Em Mcintosh! It’s a great way to share all of these options with your students in a way that makes them connect clicking on links with perusing the shelves.
Digital Gallery Walks as Digital Books
I really love Gallery Walks in my Spanish classroom! One of my favorite ways to use them is by putting all of the information in a little mini book for my students to read. Usually I would print them out, but this year it’s nice to have a digital option.
Digital Stories on Boom Cards
I make them with and without comprehension questions so the students can just read and listen along (YEP, getting that audio in!) or you can check for understanding along the way! Click here to check out one of the stories.
Love this idea? Click here to grab the bundle of digital stories on Boom Learning! (This bundle is not available on TeachersPayTeachers and includes both the versions with and without questions for each story!)
