New Spanish Fables & Paired Texts!

Do you know about Hameray Publishing's newest series?

We're excited to announce   Fábulas y el mundo real,   the Spanish equivalent of the popular   Fables & The Real World  series. ELL and dual language classrooms will benefit from this 40-book paired-text series. The fables, such as   La tortuga y el conejo   [The Tortoise and the Rabbit] and   El zorro y el chivito   [The Fox and the Goat], impart universal lessons that are relevant in any culture.

The nonfiction titles are designed to support the Common Core State Standards in Informational Texts. Titles such as  ¿ Es un lobo o un coyote ?   and   La energia del sol y del viento   teaches comparing and contrasting skills (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.2.9). Each book also includes  captions, bold print, subheadings, glossaries, indexes, and other informational text features (CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.2.5).

With a variety of topics such as weather, community markets, and showing gratitude,   Fábulas mundo real   allows ELL teachers to include content area subjects into their literacy lessons, too.

Visit the   Fábulas y el mundo real   website to browse all the titles and view sample books. ¡ Vamos a leer!
