Día del Libro 2014

International Book Day, or el Día del Libro, is celebrated on April 23, the date of both Shakespeare and Cervantes’ deaths.  It is an important day in many schools, libraries and museums in many countries, especially Spain.

Last year, in honor of the big day, my students co-wrote an adventure story about intercultural Mr. Potato Head toys with some students from my hometown.

This year, I was involved in two exciting projects:

Some of my 7th graders wrote an alphabet book about Spain, dedicated to students back in my stomping grounds.  In return, we received an ABC book about the US written especially for us.  The books can be seen here and here.

A group of my 8th grade students performed three short comedic plays in English to the resounding applause of classmates, teachers, parents, and two very special American visitors!  Check out some clips here!
