Teacher Love

This is exactly what I was looking for and worked on the skills in different ways! My kids loved it! I used it in class and the students in my class who were on virtual could complete the activities at home as well! It was perfect!
I love that this resource offers so many different ways for my students to practice the skill. These aren't your typical match or dragging activities. I loved that I could easily differentiate activities because there was so much to pick from. Thanks!
My students loved using this resource for their classwork assignments. They like the interactive features. It kept them interested. I actually had more students do their assignments. Thank you!!
