  • This was a great activity for my Exploratory Spanish class....we were only two weeks into the quarter, and they still understood the reading (with a little guidance). What a great confidence booster for them....along with some great cultural info!

  • We had a great time using this resource to wrap up our mini-unit on Semana Santa. We finished by making our own cascarones as a class. Great authentic resource.

  • I used this the first day back from spring break, which lined up perfectly with Semana Santa! I love that my middle schoolers were able to use the cognates and their previous knowledge to read this with understanding.

  • Semana Santa can be a touchy subject in public school, but this resource was great! It taught culture without crossing the boundaries!

  • A great comprehensible reading to introduce students to Semana Santa! A great activity for before or after spring break when you are looking to pace you semester well.
