***Feedback from teachers***
"Loved this!! The students had a wonderful time coloring the picture afterwards. it was a well-deserved "break" from test prep in their eyes, while I was happy that they were still finding evidence :)"
"This is such awesome resource! My students love learning about the different holidays and things that happen during the season! They also align perfectly to our core standards. Thanks for a great resource!"
"Your mystery pictures were one of my students' favorite activities this past year! I used them in RTI as a fun spiral-type review."

This year, consider bringing out the games to practice procedures! 🎲 I do this after I’ve introduced some procedures and think students are ready to start practicing them. I use a set of cards with the different procedures on them.
