  1. My students loved watching the different performers. And although terrified to perform, they were very passionate about their topics!

  2. Since I’m cheap, I struggle to buy anything on TPT over $4. After much thought, I decided to pull the trigger on this unit and I’m SO glad I did. It was exactly what I needed. $8.00 was well worth my time and sanity! 🙂
