About the lesson plans:
This set of SOMOS Flex Plans includes lesson plans and materials for 7 days of instruction plus a simple Interpretive Listening 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 love using the FLEX materials to supplement the Somos curriculum. I love that there are differentiated options for students and that there are digital versions of the activities so that I can post them on Google Classroom.

  • Somos is the best! My students and I really love Oktapodi in this unit. I like using the Slideshow when I read so that students have a visual to go along with the story.

  • Somos Flex is a fantastic curriculum. I use Somos Flex 2 for my Spanish 3 students with learning differences. I love the print packets and PowerPoints and that the stories are funny! This takes away hours of planning time for me. Thanks!

  • Love these resources, they make life so much easier! But as I use SOMOS 2 for my level 3 students, it is extremely easy for them. Good for distance learning but not so great for hybrid models.

  • I just finished this unit with my Spanish 3 students and it was great! I loved the storybuilder and the repetition of the target structures in Oktapodi and Ricitos de Oro. Having Garbanzo was also a great complement to this unit. Gracias!
