“Lecturas diarias para estudiantes de español” is a series of readings intended for beginning language students. Each set provides one week (five days) of readings. One reading is provided for each weekday:

  • Lunes de leyendas: A legend from a Spanish speaking country
  • Martes de maravillas: A natural wonder from a Spanish speaking country
  • Miércoles de música: A latin song, genre, or artist
  • Jueves de joyas: a non-fiction text about something interesting from the Spanish speaking world or Jaja jueves: a funny meme or graphic with accompanying reading
  • Viernes de viajes: A destination (place or event) in a Spanish speaking country


  • Lunes de leyendas: El chupacabras
  • Martes de maravillas: El ajolote
  • Miércoles de música: Bamboleo
  • Jaja jueves: Titanic: Mauricio quiere ser cómico
  • Viernes de viajes: Las carretas de Sarchí (Costa Rica)

The original intent of this set of resources was to create a resource that teachers could provide to their students as optional summer enrichment for interested students (so that they could read one page per day throughout their summer vacations), but there are unlimited uses for these texts!

  • Print and add to your class library for Free Reading!
  • Print and leave a selection for Sub Plans
  • Add to units of study as whole-class reading
  • Send with students on extended absences
  • and more!

The most motivating kind of reading for is no-strings-attached reading, and for that reason we recommend that teachers allow students to read these texts without completing any follow-up reading activities. However, because we know that there are many instances in which teachers might need or prefer to assign a post-reading task (substitute activities, absent work, etc.), we have provided a one-page post-reading Smash Doodle® template for each text that students could use to summarize the information from each text or story. 


  • I love the variety of these stories. I printed out several copies and make them available during self-selected reading. It was a quick way to increase reading selections in my classroom library.

  • I am using these to build out my FVR library on a limited budget. I so appreciate having thoughtful, interesting and extensive reading resources, so I can provide my students choice and help them develop their language abilities--without having to spend a ton of money on readers. Thank you!

  • My Spanish 2 students loved these last year. This year I plan to use this collection in the first few weeks of my 5th grade immersion Spanish Language Arts. Fun engaging readings. I love the variety.

  • I purchased these reading for sub plans. Originally I planned to use them for Spanish 1, but feel they would be a better fit for Spanish 2.

  • These are fantastic! There are a variety of readings on various topics. This is a great addition to FVR or even emergency sub plans. We´ve used a few readings together in class, too.

  • These resources are invaluable for continuing to provide CI to students even when we are not face to face!

  • Lots of great short readings. I've added many of them to my fvr library and we've used some of them in class as full group readings. They are short with vocabulary help for those that need it.

  • These are amazing! Well written and engaging. Nice variety of texts. I made comprehension questions and use them as warm ups in my Spanish 2 class. Please make a second bundle! We need more readings!
