Flashcards for 1st Grade Textbook 2016

So hello world! I am still busy but not so much for at least one week. My mother in law is on town and I am almost childless.


So, I have finally made the flashcards to go with my fan-praised textbook. It’s black and white so you can color at will or your printer works like that.

My Homemade Textbook New Edition 2015

Reflexions after a secondary reunion... the diet theory

Last year, I made a textbook if you didn´t know. More info, PRESS ON TEXTBOOK TAG

This year, I updated, made changes and correct mistakes for this year.




Note: This is homemade and without any comercial relationship with any publisher company.

Note 2: I eliminate the Unit 5, because honestly I never make it that far. In Sonora, we end the school year 3 weeks earlier than the rest of the country, and minus 2 weeks in the Winter Break and 2 other weeks in the Easter Break…. Well, I’m lucky if I finished the Unit 4.

Note 3: It’s designed to be printed on both sides of the page, except for the cover.

January Bulletin Board

So again, it’s my turn for the bulletin board. The last time was November and it was really THANKFUL!

This time is so WARM! My Elementary School has 12 classes (2 for each grade), so I made one cup for each class with one book in particular. I have seen students looking at the bulletin board and pointing and talking about the books. So, that’s good.


I like the idea of the cups so much that I did the same for the Secondary in one of the classroom I use more often. As soon as I finished putting the last cup, one student gave me 2 thumbs up, so that’s nice! I’m thinking in giving each student a little star sticker, so they put it on: their favorite book or the one they want to read. I haven’t decided yet.


Note: I used my new dyslexic-free font which I mentioned in a post last week.

Little Snowflake


Last year, to my shame, I partipated on the Christmas Festival. Why shame? Well, it was last notice and thankfully this was the warmup song of December.

Little Snowflake Video. It’s not a bad song and it reviews part of the body and the kids like it. I made quick signs with the snowflakes and the ribbons and that was it.

I think it of redoing it this year but with more preparation.

November Bulletin Board


In my elementary, there are two English teachers: Gris and I. We decided to put a bulletin board every other month. I got November and I was really excited.


I made lanterns using the printable in my post Halloween and Day of the Death Lanterns  because Day of Dead is becoming extremely symbolic in USA by the large amount of Mexican-American communities.


I made my students help me with the coloring and it turned out actually really good.


For resources to make it, I used the following:

Test for 1st Bimester


This is the last week of the bimester and we are all running around grading everything we have forgotten, projects, tests, etc.

For those who have been using the textbook I made, I made also the test. I am very simple with test because for me test are not important, daily assessment is. It has minimal writing for those students who are still struggling, and it simple enough so they don’t stress over it. They already stress with the other subjects.

For 1st grade: Test for 1st Bimester

For 2nd grade: Test for 1st Bimester

Teacher friends have been asking for the 3rd grade. I’m not working on it yet, maybe over the winter break.
