  • As usual, the Comprehensible Classroom did not disappoint! A very funny story and the students enjoyed acting it out and drawing great pictures for it. Great way to absorb the present progressive!

  • I always love Martina's grammar guided notes because they provide some targeted grammar instruction at the same time as in-context comprehensible reading practice. These were a great resource!

  • I liked this resource. My students were engaged with the drawings. It was a great way to practice the present progressive.

  • This was so much fun and helped my students learn present progressive in an entertaining way. The exercises stretched them and gave them many ways to experience and work through conjugating and using present progressive. Add the drama with the kissing (only in the story - we highly discourage this in person on campus!) and the students had both aha and wow moments!

  • This is a nice resource for the present progressive tense. I like that it has the option to print. There are a lot of ways to use this and the kids enjoyed the pics. Thanks!
