On Our Way to English is a comprehensive English language-learning course targeted at graded levels, from K-5. A complete program per grade includes two Thematic Teacher’s Editions (Volumes 1 and 2), a Student Book and Leveled Reading Teacher’s Guide. Main supplemental materials include Vocabulary Cards, a Texas English Language Proficiency Standards (TELPS) correlated handbook, CD-ROM with the course in digital format and an audio CD. For the purposes of this review, I will be focusing on the Thematic Teacher’s Editions for Grade 2.
On Our Way to English for Grade 2 is a highly relevant program for the modern era. Its publication in 2012 puts it within the latest trends of modern language instructional theory and practices. It is adaptable for state and regional requirements, as well as to the mainstream and ESL teacher. It is very user friendly in terms of presentation and procession. Major drawbacks are the monetary factors and the glaring oversight of an important academic subject-- math.
