  • A great, comprehensible comprehensible reading. I broke up the reading even further with only 1-3 sentences per slide and lots of visuals to support comprehension.

  • This is a great little unit to do upon returning to school after winter break! The students enjoy learning about the tradition, and as always, the activities are top notch! I love all Comprehensible Classroom materials--can't go wrong!
