Hola!
OK . . .I've just been editing and re-vamping these. So, Spanish I's reading is very controlled and all in the present tense. Spanish II's reading has a bit more detail and a good amount of preterite verbs. You could purchase just one and then re-work the verbs to fit each level. I just put some images in the Spanish I compilation that can be used to create visuals. Hope this helps,

I recently purchased the Spanish Nativity Story on TpT. I was disappointed in the grammatical errors. Wondering if you can fix the book to say La Primera Navidad (rather than Le). I found this error a few times. Also, Nazareth is Nazaret in Spanish. In the booklet it says Ella vive a en, it should just be Ella vive en. Please let me know if I can get an updated version.

Hello and thank you for looking at "Write On!" This does have examples from both Spanish and French; some are ready to go as a class-set printable, but others are examples. It is an instructional publication meant to teach how to teach writing in a foreign language to novice level learners. Most users then create their own materials for some methods so that they can customize them

Hello,
I am updating my Mardi Gras unit! Love this theme. Your resources look AWESOME. Before I purchase/download, I am inquiring as to if the common core standards are included on any of them, or if you could provide them. I have to include them for a summer school proposal. During the regular school year, I teach math FT so it would definitely be a timesaver and reassure me I am meeting the requirements in the unit, and with the summer school program.
Thanks in advance,

Buyer re: Spanish Thanksgiving Preference Activities
just a quick accuracy note: for these expressions, we say "a mi tambien," not "yo tambien." (porque ME gusta A MI; the "liked" object is the subject of the sentence). Also, the "me gusta" would be "me gustan" with the plural nouns (las frutas, las judias, etc.) Otherwise, very cute ideas, and I'll use them tomorrow as Common Core Standard integration in my 8th grade class. We've already studied the expressions of preference, so this will be a great tie-in.

Hola!
At this point we don't have a podcast uploaded to tpt because that tech isn't offered on tpt. We are very, very loose and almost improvisational about how we use chants. Our chants are always short and very repetitive and they tend to go with traditional English language nursery rhymes and songs or the teacher can just create a quick chant to suite the words and syllables.
I tend to change up chants almost every time I use them. :)

Buyer re: Spanish Thanksgiving Story & Unit: Grades 3-6
Hi! I just bought your product and I'm excited about using it with my students in Alabma. Nevertheless, I do have one concern. I am from Puerto Rico, which makes me an American citizen by birth, and we do celebrate Thanksgiving, in our own Hispanic way. Therefore, you might want to edit the title and the first sentence, since there is such a thing as a Hispanic Thanksgiving celebration. I must admit, it made me pretty upset to read that, yet I know I don't know it all and make mistakes as well. So I just wanted to run this by you, in case you'd like to edit for future buyers.

Again, I'm excited about your product, and look forward to many more.

Thanks,

Liza

Hola Liza!
I'm (Catherine) and I'm so glad that you bring this up. Coincidentally, I hale from El Paso, Texas where the original Thanksgiving in this hemisphere occurred between Europeans and Native Americans; in that case it was the Spaniard Don Juan de Onate and the Ysleta Indians who still have an active, thriving tribal community.
We decided a few years ago at publication to leave the title in since it referred to the Thanksgiving between the founders of the American Colonies and the Native Americans of Massachussetts. In El Paso we do celebrate the Onate- Ysleta Thanksgiving with an understanding that it was between the founders of New Spain that only became Texas under 200 years ago.
We are sorry to have offended you; cultural awareness is a goal and standard by which we stand.
I can say that as the writer, we'll probably change the title at our next editorial review of publications.

Hi,
I see from the post below that you have already been made aware of the repeated spelling error in the title of your coloring book, but I purchased it a month after Sarah's post and the errors still exist. Also, the word 'él' should have an accent mark even when it is capitalized if the meaning is 'he'. I would love to have an accurate version in time to use this within the next two weeks. I did not anticipate the work being flawed and am disappointed that I may not get a cleaned up version in time.

Buyer re: Nativity Mini-Book
I figured out the problem, I printed in preview instead of Adobe. Sorry about that, the book looks great and I love the characters gentle faces
Thank you for your help

The Nativity book doesn't print the far edges on booths sides, the words are cut off. Do you know how to solve this?

Was this in French or Spanish? I'll look into it tomorrow to get you an updated copy. In the meantime, could you reduce % when printing?

Buyer re: Spanish Nativity Story for Novice Speakers
Hi there!

I purchased this Nativity Story (Spanish) for Novice Speakers last week. However, when I opened the book, there are a few problems I wanted to make you aware of:

1. The title of the children's coloring book is listed as "Le Primera Navidad"...should be "La Primera Navidad" since I purchased the Spanish version.

2. The pages of the coloring book are not evenly split down the middle. Therefore, when the kids cut along the dotted lines, the book does not line up evenly. Some pages are 1/2 page size, others are 1/3 or 1/4 in size. (This really frustrated the kids when I used it in class on Tuesday.)

I have not yet had time to read through the rest of the materials (I plan on doing that over the Thanksgiving holiday). The coloring book is absolutely adorable though! It was perfect for use in my class....minus those two things listed above. :)

If you do make corrections to this document, would you mind sending the corrected version to me? I would greatly appreciate it! It was a bit embarrassing having the children scratch out the "e" in "Le Primera..." and change it to an "a'. It's partly my fault, I should have looked closer at the coloring book prior to printing it out! :)

Gracias por todo!

Buyer re: Spanish School Supplies Story Unit
I have purchased this activity and have tried to print it numerous times. The title on the first page prints in English and the rest of it is mixed up in a language I don\'t recognize. Can you give me some tips on how I can resolve this? Thank you!

Hmm . . . I was going to upload the pdf to tpt again, but when I checked it seemed fine. Could you please email me at foreignlanguagehouse@gmail.com? I can try to send it to you as an attachment (along w/another freebie for your trouble.) So sorry about this. I have no idea why it isn\'t printing properly.

Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I was at home on my mac when some of the slides didn't work. I'm at school now and it works here on my pc. I will have to play around with my powerpoint on the mac to see what is wrong there. But I have to say, I didn't notice when I ordered this that it was all in spanish. Kind of disapointed.

We believe in a target-language only approach to language learning. You can still adapt the PowerPoint to include English if you wish.
