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!
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.
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 am a little selfish and self-guarded when it comes to my work, like most of us, but I believe in sharing when you are no longer using it, when you tried and you are pleased by the outcome.
Last year, our Teacher Training Boss, Jefe de Enseñanza, asked us to plan by unit and daily. Honestly, I hate daily planning but I have done it for a long time so I can do it.
Note 1: I don´t have the whole weekly thing because we were told in December and I totally forgot the last project.
Note 2: It´s using Yes, We Can 1 as our textbook
Note 3: It´s not perfect. There are hundreds of mistakes.
Note 4: Yes, that´s my whole full and super long name.
|Unit 2||Monthly||Weekly 2b|
|Unit 3||Monthly||Weekly 3a, Weekly 3b|
|Unit 4||Monthly||Weekly 4a, Weekly 4b|
|Unit 5||Monthly||Weekly 5a|
We received finally more textbooks to replace the deficient supply we received at the beginning of the school year. We got a full load of Yes, We Can Secondary by Richmond.
I must say that I like it a lot. I used All Ready last year and it’s good but sometimes it’s too advanced. Okay, let’s start this review.
- The audios are quite clear and comprehensible (at least in 1st grade which I taught this year)
- The textbook is not too heavy.
- The activitivies are diverse, up to the point and level.
- The instructions are simple (you wouldn’t believe how many textbook complicate themselves and myself with the instructions)
- The readers book has texts according to the topic.
- The color scheme and layout is pleasant to the eye in most of the pages.
- As always, I have complained that the readers book is in shades of grey (no best-seller novel).
- The paper quality and binding are not perfect. I am already losing pages by the daily use. They are ungluing.
Overall it’s a good option for a textbook. If you have it, take care of it. If you don’t have. I almost have all the package from the audios, teachers books and I’m scanning the textbooks (1st grade complete). If you want them, send me a comment.
