  11. Graciela – LAREDO ISD (verified owner)

    I really like tha activity because it had a format to follow. It is very intersting to work in a group and come up with all the good ideas.

  12. Brandi – MARION CITY (verified owner)

    I like the idea of getting kids to talk and connections before a unit even starts.

  13. Beverly – SAN BENITO CISD (verified owner)

    I would like something that could help me start the lesson alone. I get all hyped up but when I try to start all alone it doesn’t work the same.

  14. Arnoldo – EDINBURG CISD (verified owner)

    I probably wouldn’t use it in my class.

  15. Samuel – CONROE ISD (verified owner)

    Very informative and useful.

  16. Nikki – MANSFIELD ISD (verified owner)

    I think this is great for classroom teachers, but not really applicable for intervention teachers.
