COMMENTS:

I work in a k-5 Dual Language Program in Albany New York. I have been using materials that I purchased and/or downloaded from miscositas for a while now. I just wanted to share that I love the materials that I have used from miscositas. This year, I used Cuéntame: Folklore y fábulas with my 5th grade students and it was great:-) I continue using so many other resources that I purchased from you--Mi abuela ya no está with my 3rd graders, Tramposos famosos with my second graders and I start my kinder students off with the passwords perfectos which I copied and laminated and posted up. I could go on an on.... I find the materials are engaging, child friendly--which is important since I work with primary school aged students--and bring aspects of the diverse latino cultures to my students and serve as a wonderful springboard for discussion.
