What are other teachers saying about this Spanish movie guide resource?

  • ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ A mis estudiantes les encantó ver la película, y luego trabajaron en grupos para completar la actividad. Hice algunos cambios en la actividad dependiendo del nivel de mis estudiantes. Unos solo dibujaron a los personajes y otros contestaron las preguntas. Lo use durante la semana del Cinco de Mayo y hablamos un poco de la cultura y tradiciones en Mexico. - Nury S (Grades 5-6)
  • ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Great way to describe the characters! For my lower levels I had them list personality traits (variety of adjectives) and physical descriptions. For my upper levels they described the characters but also compared and contrasted them. - Voctoria M (Grades 9-12)
  • ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Great movie guide! Saved me the time of making questions myself! - Hannah W
  • ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Love this! Great for my middle schoolers. (grades 6-8) - Dequeisimo
  • ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ We loved this! My students (10th grade) were super interested in the movie and the questions helped keep them on track! Thank you! - Nicole B
