I used books 1 and 2 last year (and this year) and we just started the 3d year.  They're not bad books.  There are some good activities in them.

Just received the new 3rd grade book, so happy the old one was very boring and the lessons very limited, so now my 1st lesson for 3rd grade is also “The Magic of 10,000 hours”, what are you planning for this lesson?

i use this series of books as well. will post my lessons as i work through them. last year i only used the 2nd year book, and i wasn't a huge fan of it. however the 1st year text looks much better. they are giving me the teacher's book this year as well, so that should help matters.

Yup, my school still uses this series for Grade 1 and 2. I'm not a fan. It's too unfocused, and each grade's book is almost the same subjects and difficulty.
Last year, I just picked a theme that seemed related to the speaking section and went from there. I just used the books for reading practice.

While I'm not teaching from these directly, I am going to be drawing material from these texts for levels 1-3 this year for my main classes after I go over basic rules and protocol the first three weeks or so.  I would be happy to post my materials for the lessons in question when I have them so that people can use them if these are, indeed,  your text books.

I have the same book. Any ideas would be great because I have no idea where to start.

My thought exactly, I was thinking to teach them the phrase but also to mention that it's very informal and maybe impolite to an extent. I also gathered from the study points that the lesson in mostly based on apologizing and introducing and then also to accept an apology.

I would suggest alternative word for never mind maybe:
I forgive you.
Apology accepted.
Can't really think of more right now, my mind is up ducted by the evil Korean flu 

I will upload my lessons as soon as I am done with them, hopefully if the flu treats me well which I doubt it might still be this week.

I have these books too!  Can't stop giggling at the chapter heading "I'm Unique Because My Hearing is Bad."  Wonder why they go out of their way to avoid using the word "deaf."  Is there a bad word that sounds like that in Korean?

I think the toughest thing for me about these books is trying to pinpoint exactly what the book is trying to teach in each lesson. 

From my understand, here are the "targets" of the first lesson for each grade:

MG1 - Introducing oneself, what one is and likes

MG2 - Introductions of self and others, giving and accepting apologies

MG3 - "I'm looking forward to..." (future & lengths of time), "I'm interested in..." (expressing how you like things?)

Does this make sense to anyone else?

i think that you will be walking in quicksand if you attempt to tease out some logic or overarching plan in these lessons. i would suggest using the teacher's book for ideas if you are stumped. i don't think there is any idea governing each lesson. last year, i approached planning for the 2nd grade book the same way you are now and i was flummoxed, but now i'm of the belief that the best way to teach this book is to use a variety of short tasks/communicative activities, in groups, that use one or more of the speaking points in the lesson.

i actually believe that they have made our jobs much easier, by finally giving us a clear, if somewhat nonsensical, curriculum. also i have been pleasantly surprised, leafing through the teacher's book. they clearly made an effort to focus on communicative activities over rote memorization. however, many of the activities, as-is, are useless in most school settings, so they need to be modified, but at least it is a start.

there is a good section in one of Willis' teacher's doing task based education books where a teacher in a language school in japan describes how he integrated tasks while having a strict textbook-based curriculum. i believe the e-book is available online. also the I.S.P. Nation speaking book has many wonderful activities you could use.

listening and speaking only too


Yeah I'm also having trouble getting a clear theme out of these. I'm just trying to derrive something from the key sentences at the beginning and what is being said in the dialogue section. What was stated above sounds good to me.
