  • The readings were a fun activity in so many ways. Full of cognates and a different way to engage my students after a long day!

  • I am using this resource 1x weekly with my Span 1 students to get them into reading in the target language. Also employing the CC strategy of Volleyball Translation to increase their comprehension. [Gracias TCC]. Kids loved the puzzle part of the exercise. I love that they loved it!

  • I used these as a bellringer once per week over five weeks in my level II class, and it was a nice change of pace from current topics in class while still working in the TL. They were very comprehensible for all students.

  • I used this as a fun way for students to work together in small teams at the beginning of the year to help build classroom culture and an ethic of problem-solving and cooperation. It got students talking and interacting.

  • Great little starters. Used this during Spanish Language Week at my school, giving kids a challenge each day and drawing an entry for a prize out of the correct entries. Kids had a lot of fun with it.
