Somos 2 Unit 11 FLEX

Hybrid curriculum for Intermediate Spanish: Use for Sub plans, Absent work, Make-up, and Paperless assignments

Intermediate (Levels 2-4), Novice (Levels 1-2)
Google Drive

El que se enoja, pierde is a story that is well-suited for use in Level 2 Spanish classes due to its repetitive, past tense plot. The story is divided into three sections, and students will read and listen to each section of the story multiple times as they move through this unit completing different text-based tasks. This product is the Flex companion to SOMOS 2 Unit 11.

About the lesson plans:
This set of SOMOS Flex Plans includes lesson plans and materials for 6 days of instruction plus a simple writing 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.

NOTE: This product was originally published as a set of fully asynchronous resources in the Spring of 2020. Those resources are still accessible via a link at the top of the Unit Overview page in the Unit Plans document.


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 purchased this to supplement the original curriculum. I love the digital options and additional activities. It is also great for a sub.

  • A very good resource, though not as good for distance learning as the real FLEX units. Still excellent content that I can adapt now that we're back in the classroom as well.

  • These resources are always thoughtfully designed, very engaging, and clearly laid out. I used this to help my students understand uses of the preterite and imperfect. Not only was this an effective way of helping them learn these difficult concepts, but they really enjoyed the story. Thank you!

  • Once again, The Comprehensible Classroom comes to the rescue. I love teaching this unit in Spanish III, and I am so glad that a digital format is available as we just went all virtual last week and are unlikely to return in person any time soon.

  • These digital extensions to the Somos curriculum are a lifesaver if you are in a distance learning situation. I am honestly amazed at how creatively the activities were adapted for remote learning. They were engaging for my students and easy for me to implement.
