  • After taking a few minutes to figure out the digital Cascarones, students loved learning about Cascarones. I always enjoy using Martina's resources. They are always well thought out and show you, as the teacher, how to implement them. Students are always engaged through interesting topics and CI. Thanks!

  • Did this as part of a lesson over multiple days where we learned abut Cascarones and then actually went outside and broke cascarones over our heads. So much fun! The students really enjoyed it!

  • Great quick lessons on Cascarones that we used right before Easter. The Comprehensible Classroom comes through for me AGAIN!

  • I loved the variety in this set. Our favorite activity was definitely the Cascarones Glyph! Gracias for all the hard work that went into creating these resources!

  • We were doing in-person learning, but I left this on Google Classroom as sub plans for a day that I was out (and my subs never know Spanish). It was perfect for independent learning.
