I mentioned before Summer vacations that textbooks arrived in both the Secondary schools where I work. (Read: Ending the School Year on a Good Note)
On the first school day, I snuck in to make inventory and surprise surprise. There weren’t enough books in one school for the whole school population. Actually, not even one shift (that’s the correct word?) for First Grade, not even for 3 classrooms (there are 10 per grade) for Second and Third grade. Sad, sad. We made the complaint letter, stating the amount of book required, and so on. We are still waiting…
Inmediatelly, I went to the other school to sneak in again. In this inventory, there were plenty of books in 1st grade (which I am teaching this school year) like 250 extra, because they sent from two publisher companies. The extra boxes belonged from two years inventory which got late AS USUAL, so we had the leftover left behind books.
So, I had an idea. Of course with permission, I voluntered to help to hand out the textbooks, so I could get hold of those extra boxes.
After 3 days of cleaning, moving, counting, arranging and sweating (the warehouse/laboratory is really big and without proper AC), I obtained 4 boxes (3 textbook and 1 reader) for my 3 groups in the other Secondary. I handed them out and I am quite happy because I will have the 4 first grade groups with the same textbook. Let’s see how it works.
So I will be working with Yes, We Can! 1 Secondary by Richmond. If someone has the audios, please send them to me. Thank you!
