Am I the only one that finds them extremely hard to understand, or just plain awful ideas? I almost never follow their advice when it comes to the activity "Play Together" portion of each lesson. I almost always come up with something MUCH better.

Sometimes I read the text and the words are...in English. I'm looking at them. And they often don't make any sense, or are so far beyond the realm of enjoyability that I long gave up on them. I am almost always able to create materials that are far better, or come up with ideas that are a huge modification upon their original idea. Sometimes I'll say, keep the part where students move around but completely change the rules and dynamics of whatever they originally offered.

I want to rewrite these textbooks so bad.
