  • I love Martina's resources! I have -ER/-IR Verbs notes, but in an effort to be more CI-friendly I use these because it's grammar in context. LOVE that she added an Easel/Google option to save paper! I just started exploring Easel and it's a great digital option

  • A good combination of grammar and comprehensible input. The reading was very comprehensible and students were able to find the -er verbs fairly easily.
