007. Second Grade Homemade Textbook (Nuevo Modelo)

This one I really remake it completely. I never actually liked the original one. I was made on the moment (like in a weekend) and I was so lazy to make some real changes. This was my opportunity.

Even though there is more thought behind it, there are some things that I had to say:

  1. The last unit is about MEXICO. According to the new syllabus, it should be about America… Sorry, but it’s second grade. In 3rd grade, students learns about their state. In 4th grade, it’s about Mexico. American and the world is on 5th or 6th. So, COME ON!
  2. The unit about poems or something like that was difficult to make since the previous unit is so similar. It had to put a unit between and I still have problems to make it happen. I am not happy with that unit.

I also made the flashcards to use according to the homemade textbook. I just took the pictures and resize them. It’s not biggie.

The first 3 pages are for stars of each sessions. Kids love them. You can use a stamp. If you don’t want to get star stickers so often, just don’t print them… or print the ALTERNATIVE COVER.

Notes:

  1. It’s a pdf file because of the fonts.
  2. The first 3 pages are for stars of each sessions. Kids love them. You can use a stamp if you don’t want to get star stickers so often, just don’t print them… or print the ALTERNATIVE COVER
  3.  The idea is to print it on BOTH SIDES like a normal book.
  4. It’s not perfect. Any comment is welcomed.
  5. I followed the new syllabus page by page. I could have done it like we used to: one learning environment then another but there is no rule according to the Secondary textbooks. Check in the link: 002. Secondary New Textbooks

006. Decorating classroom (printables)

digialprint

Lately, I have been playing around with design and digital printing (amazing and cheap). If you don’t know what it is… Well, you go to the digital printer place with you USB flash drive with the file to print in PDF: you can either ask for it in COVER (that’s the name of the paper) or ADHESIVO (yes, sticker paper). It usually costs like $10 pesos each page and it’s double-letter size. So it’s big. In my city (Hermosillo) there are plenty of places to choose from.

If you don’t have a classroom like a lot of us, well, you can still use it as big flashcards for teaching ABC and actions. However it looks better on the wall.

For this year… Disney inspired

Note: The picture in the ABC is bilingual since the picture works in both language: avion – airplane. The only one I couldn’t find was Quetzal, at least Disney related.

004. Differences between 2011 vs 2018 syllabus (Secondary)

yeswecan1

The NUEVO MODELO is not a “erase and rewind” syllabus.

dif18

It’s an overall “rearrangement”. Please, check it up.

Notes:

  1. It’s an approximation in terms of products, achievements and social practices. It’s not official. I made it.
  2. I followed the order according to Aprendizajes Claves syllabus.
  3. I know that in the old syllabus the order was: a) familiar and community, b) literary and ludic c) academic and educational, 1 product of each environment followed by the next environment. HOWEVER, the new syllabus has the 4 products of the Familiar and Community environment first, then the 3 of Literary and Ludic, and finally the 3 products of Academic and Educational.
  4. The textbooks will arrange the order according to whatever they pleased. In secondary, it happened. Of 15 textbooks, only 4 followed the Aprendizajes Claves order
  5. It’s in Spanish because it’s the same as the official document (Aprendizajes Claves)
  6. ANY ERROR, PLEASE TELL ME
  7. Some projects/units were completely erased, some were slightly changed and some were just moved.

In general, 80% remained the same (I can be wrong!)

002. Secondary New Textbooks

yeswecan1

As you well know, the NUEVO MODELO syllabus starts with 1st grade in Secondary next month. Most of us already chose our textbooks. In my school, we chose YES WE CAN because it was familiar and we always have all the textbook on time (which is super important)

If you haven’t checked the whole options, well it’s up to you to do it at https://nmeducativo.conaliteg.gob.mx/content/common/consulta-libros-gb/

Anyway, I made a little cheat sheet with all the textbooks and general layout of the units, products and its pages.

001. First Post

Well, like the picture says.

Update: Jun 10, 2018. I’m finally doing something here. It’s taking shape.

Update: July 4, 2018. For Americans, Happy Independence Day! I am finally doing something. I will probably post something sometime this day, week, month, year, decade, century.
