Over half of my students speak Spanish as their heart language. I'm incredibly grateful for the wealth of Spanish poetry and Spanish-English/English-Spanish translations available. While at La Cosecha Bilingual Education Conference, I met the author of this excellent bilingual poetry text.
Here's a blurb about the author, Andalucia:
Despertar en poesia/ Waking Up to Poetry is a vivid portrayal of a young Latina woman appreciating day-to-day interactions with nature and society. This book has won several awards. We will be enjoying it during morning advisory and a few workshop mini-lessons. Every piece lends itself to teaching tone, imagery, and mood.
