  • This resource was so well-thought out and incredible. I LOVED the practice my students got with saber/conocer AND were able to be up and around, moving! The stations were different enough, but had similar enough ideas they learned as they worked through it! Such a tough concept for students to grasp, but this resource was awesome.

  • Really great resource. Engaging stations. The only thing is some stations are quicker than others so that made moving in time intervals harder but the students feel much more confident about it now.
