Creating your own FVR Booklets

If you’ve been following our posts this year, you know we have been focusing a lot lately on FVR (free voluntary reading) as a tool for acquisition in the language learning classroom. Today we are going to show you how to create your own mini-readers using your own class stories.

Here is a picture of our classroom library at this point in level 1.The best way to organize it is to purchase a wire six-tier rack from Amazon. I then have a student job in each class as el bibliotecario (the librarian) to help keep it organized.

You can see that it features novels from FluencyMatters, SpanishCuentos, SenorWooly Pro, SpanishTeacherShop, as well as others. While Senor Wooly does have 2 graphic novels you can buy, he always have a TON of readings to go along with his songs. If you have a PRO subscription (I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t), go to the “extras” tab on a story page and you have access to embedded readings and more! While you can copy them for students, or put them in a binder, and add that to your FVR, why not print it as a booklet? While we say “don’t judge a book by it’s cover”, teachers know that the visual apperrance definitely has an influence on students. Watch our tutorial on how to turn any text into a printable foldable booklet.
