This is my last day with my mother in law and I have to seize the day. Anyway! 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!

I finally re-edited this year textbook: HOME edition. Honestly, I didn’t do much, just added the spelling bee section at the beginning and I corrected two mistakes (like in the page below: BALTA is wrong. It should be BALTE). That’s it!
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.
I finally remembered to do the rally this year. I had been so busy that it just slipped my mind. It was done one windy rainy day and it was actually better than last year.
As usual, I gave them questions to answer.
They ran, jumped, answered questions and all in the shortest time possible.
I held the prizes for the next day, so I could know what to buy. Normally, I use candy bags but I wanted something different.
Two of this team won last year, so they are in row.
I have always being against using mainstream kids songs. However, I am backing up on my word. I hate to contradict myself. It’s annoying.
Well, I decided to use this song with my Second Graders and it’s really working.
I like this version and my students too. We even watched the video this week and they were singing it and doing the movements.
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.
