  • As with all of the resources from Comprehensible Classroom, this was a fantastic resource for my Spanish I students. I paired it with another resource where they got to create a yipao in class and they loved it!

  • I enjoyed this reading a lot with my students. I used it with one of the chapters in the book Piñata de Renata, and it was awesome to give them some background info for it!
