Product Description
In the years since I began teaching Spanish with TPRS® and Comprehensible Input, I have found that most of my students enjoy reading silly or creative stories in Spanish. Every year, however, I have had a number of students who were more interested in math, science, and facts. When I taught middle school, I spent several years delving into the theory of multiple intelligences and researching how to incorporate students' interests into the classroom. I found it easy to design lessons where my artistic, kinesthetic, musical, and linguistic students would feel successful. However, I always struggled to incorporate science and math.

When I began incorporating silent reading time in my classes, I realized that I could easily add books about STEM topics to my classroom library. However, I discovered that it is nearly impossible to find STEM books that are accessible to beginning language learners. Next step. . . create my own! I wrote this story for my students to read silently to themselves during reading time. Although I have not built a lesson around it, you certainly could.

This book about the solar system will be easily accessible to students in the middle of Spanish 2. However, students in Spanish 1 who are highly interested in this topic may also choose to read it. My general rule of thumb for my classroom library is: "If a book feels too easy, you can either enjoy it and realize how much Spanish you have learned, or you can put it back. If a book feels too challenging, you can put it back and take another one."

This book provides a brief description of each of the eight planets (with a few pages at the end about Pluto). It gives basic facts and connects each planet to the figure in Greek or Roman mythology for whom it was named.
