What educators are saying

This was a fun one to do either students! Great for making personal connections! Students asked to write their own scary stories after reading.
Used this during October for "spooky season," learning various mitos y leyendas. The students really enjoyed learning about El Cucuy and I'll definitely be using this next year!
