What Others Are Saying!

❤️asywithdelrio This product is AMAZING! I used it during a vocabulary center for my lower group that needed more support and more visuals. There were so many activities and it was perfect to use throughout the entire week. It made lesson planning so much easier! I was able to assign this resource to my classroom instructional aide because the directions were clear and easy to follow. So happy with this purchase.
❤️Lisalisa This is a very thorough pack for newcomer ELs. The lessons are comprehensive and include standards, time and materials, step-by-step directions, and pictures to guide you through them. I would feel comfortable even leaving something like this with a sub - it is very easy to follow. Thank you!
