About the lesson plans:
This set of SOMOS Flex Plans includes lesson plans and materials for 7 days of instruction plus a simple reading assessment. Lesson plans and materials are provided with instructions for FOUR (4) kinds of learners for every day in order to streamline planning:

  • IN CLASSROOM STUDENTS: for daily classroom instruction
  • LIVESTREAM AND SYNCHRONOUS STUDENTS: for students that are attending class from home, either streaming in to classroom instruction or attending classes that are led by the teacher on virtual platforms such as Zoom.
  • ASYNCHRONOUS: for students that are working independently on virtual assignments from home.
  • PRINT ONLY: for students learning remotely without Internet access

All learning strands are fully synchronized so that all students in the course will be working through the same material, at the same pace, regardless of the instructional strand that they have chosen.


The Somos Flex plans offer a simplified version of the lessons from the original SOMOS Curriculum. Somos Flex was originally created for teachers who were juggling multiple strands of learners during the pandemic, including learners in virtual spaces. It was valuable to keep the content more consistent and predictable for both the teacher and the student. 

The original Somos plans include a much wider variety of activities and go more in-depth with cultural exploration. Somos Flex is formulaic and streamlined, so that neither you nor your learners are trying to figure out how to do new activities and use new tools in each unit. While this is ideal for hybrid instructional models especially, the Original Somos curriculum offers a much richer, more personalized language learning experience.

Teachers that already own The Somos Curriculum can use these materials to meet the needs of learners in less traditional instructional settings (hybrid, fully asynchronous, etc.) and to differentiate to better meet the needs of all of their learners, regardless of instructional setting. The Flex materials provide opportunities to extend content from the original curriculum, alternatives to replace activities or stories that don't fit the needs of your program and your personality, and material for make-up work and sub plans.

Teachers that do not already own the original Somos Curriculum may choose to purchase only the Flex plans if they have online or virtual learners. The Flex plans are not dependent on the original plans in any way. Purchasing both the original Somos materials and the Flex plans will allow teachers to access the full depth of the curriculum and maximum differentiation.

  • I loved using the FLEX plans during distance learning, but even as we are back in person I keep coming back to the digital resources - they're great to have on hand for sub plans, if I need an activity for independent work while I do test make-ups, just for more repetition, etc. Plus having the native speaker audio available is great to differentiate for my heritage students that struggle to read and need the audio (I just start around Unit 5 for them).

  • I had both in-person and distance learners at the same time and this made my life so much easier! I still use many of the FLEX activities now that we are fully in person again.

  • This was a great addition to the regular Somos curriculum. Low prep, and easy for the students to follow. I started using it as sub work as well.

  • I used this for remote learning this week. My 6th and 7th graders were crazy about it! I had some students on IEPs that are intimidated by other stories, but this really set everyone up for success. I would love to have many more stories like this! So great for students at Novice level.

  • I used this for a Zoom class with some of my students. It was very easy to go through the story. I really appreciated the given options so it was a streamlined way to tell the story.
