I think this might be the main thing I worked on all week. Of course, there was a lot of the photo sourcing spreadsheets that were featured on other people’s blogs. But I got to do something else this week – photo editing.

Not the most readable example for a vocab lesson. The old lesson used screenshots of proprietary calendar softwares, so my job was to make replacements. I started with these 3 photos.
They had a few issues still. The English labeling, mostly, the lack of Saturdays for one, and the branch blocking the other.
For some variants, I actually had to edit the days of the month.

It looks like someone’s already added their own tabs to it.
