Support Literacy Growth with a Spanish-First Approach

Specifically designed for Spanish-speaking students, i-Ready’s Spanish Reading lessons are not transadapted from English, as is the case with many other Spanish Reading programs. Instead, they were created from scratch to provide systematic and explicit instruction in foundational reading skills that follows an authentic scope and sequence. Lessons in all domains feature content crafted by writers representing the cultural richness of the Spanish-speaking world. This means that emerging Spanish readers get authentic instruction that is optimized to support their growth.

Empower the Next Generation of Bilingual Learners through Authentic Content

Invite your students to engage more deeply in their learning with instruction that reflects their experiences. 100 percent of literary texts were custom written by authors from across the Spanish-speaking world, including the United States, and are accompanied by captivating artwork from illustrators with equally diverse backgrounds. Students interact with content that reflects their identities and communities represented in instructional content while giving them windows into the lived experiences of others, all while fostering a joy of reading. Engaging themes are woven into topics around science and social studies to support students in applying knowledge across domains.
