On a recent trip to Texas I spent some time prowling through my favorite bookstores and teacher shops. I can't remember exactly where I stumbled across this rare find, but I know some of you are homeschooling exclusively in Spanish, so I hope this helps one of you out.
At anyrate, I now have in my possession, one copy of McGraw-Hill's Artes del lenguaje. Actually, I have the text book and the smaller, accompanying manual, Manual de gramática y escritura. This set of books seems to be written for students in 3rd grade. Both are written completely in Spanish and both are in perfect condition. There are no marks, tears, or even a single folded corner in either book that I can see. There is no teacher's manual, however, you can find the English version of this text here, and this site includes a lesson guide for the teachers, and another section for the students/parents.
There is also a section at the front of Artes dedicated to preparing the student for the TAAS test.
McGraw-Hill's online catalog sells the English text book for $50 and the writing guide for $7. I'm offering these two books together for $30.00, plus $5 shipping. It is available here on the Mommy Maestra Specials page on a first-come, first-served basis.
Here are some random pictures so that you will get a good idea of the content...
I have a few other good finds, as well, and will share them with you soon.
Con mucho cariño...
