Somebody brought to your attention the grammar error in Spanish (el gata), and you mention that it was already corrected. Well I just downloaded my copy and it isn't fixed yet. It should read "La gata" or 'El gato".
I did fix it and created a new file. I'm assuming that the file did not go through when I re-uploaded it again. I just uploaded the revised file again but I'm not sure if it went through. Can you please let me know if it did go through. If it doesn't, I will call TPT tomorrow to address this issue immediately. Thank you for bringing this to my attention and I apologize for the inconvenience.

I found one thing you may reconsider. On one of the word cards I believe says el gata for cat. The masculine and feminine parts don't agree. I don't have it in front of me, so I am not positive. This is a FANTASTIC unit and well worth every penny!!!
Thank you! I have just uploaded the revised copy. I also fixed an error on the Hot Tamale blends activity. The word 'blink' was used twice. (my students pointed that one out to me today!) I'm glad you enjoyed it!
