  • I was impressed with how engaged my students were with the reading. It is very comprehensible and I love that the reading is both on slides and on paper. I also love the built-in links to videos. Great resource!

  • My students loved to learn about la tomatina, and it is great to have a no prep resource to make planning easy! I will definitely be using this resource in the future.

  • My student used this resource to end the school year with a bang. They love reading and watching the videos. They found interesting the fact that they used tomatoes!

  • I used this in my "celebrations" unit, where students voted on the most unique celebration in the Spanish-speaking world.
