Plays in English and Spanish, Grades 1-6
By Resurrección Espinosa
This versatile book from master teaching artist Resurrección Espinosa features 10 plays each presented twice — first in English, then in Spanish. Equally accessible to Spanish-dominant and English-dominant students, each play includes a list of essential vocabulary words that will enhance every student’s language abilities. Most of the plays in the book have 7 to 15 characters and range from 10 to 20 minutes; one play, Don Quijote in America, has a larger cast and runs more than 30 minutes. Tested in both inner-city and suburban schools, these plays dramatically improve both reading and speaking skills. More than that, they promote creativity, team work and self-confidence while engaging students in a fun activity. Read more...
