Both of the Newcomer Program 3-6 and K-2 books are amazing! It took a very long time to find these books, but I am glad I finally did. I am really sad that these books are out of print. During my ESL student teaching my observation teacher used this book and I loved it. I don't believe in worksheets and don't think the worksheets in this book should be given to students in exchange for instruction. This is a great book to use for direct one on one instruction for students because it is so visual. As an ESL teacher, you will need to teach your beginning students about all of the content inside this book. Thus, this book takes away the hours of trying to develop your own materials. Again, this book should not be used as the only form of instruction, but it is definitely a wonderful supplemental resource....especially for new teachers!
