⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Dawn says, "I teach students who are below grade level by 2 - 4 years. This is perfect for my literacy centers since it reteaches with videos, notes, and engaging practice. Thank you for an amazing resource that brings technology to the kids. I've used it in class so students can work independently while I work with struggling students. It works great virtually as well since it can be posted in my school's learning management system, Canvas for absent or quarantined students. Thank you so much! "

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Jessica says, "I cannot say enough about this resource! I am currently using this as a spiral skill review to prep for our state assessment and literally EVERY student is engaged. They are LOVING the movie connections and the fact that it brings the skills to life. They all applaud and cheer every time we start a new skill assignment. Thank you so much for taking the time to create such an amazing product. "

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Hannah says, "This is a really engaging resource! I am using it for one of my centers (technology) while I am working with groups. I can preplan and decide what skill we will be working on and the students can be working on this all week! Maybe even two weeks! It gives them a great lesson on what it is and practice. What I really love is the FUN pages that are enrichment for my high students. I love that I can reassign these slides if they continue to struggle. "
