I love this website. I teach English second language students and they are even giving me the Spanish cognates now in the vocabulary section. You Can't get better than that. I use this site weekly.

An excellent reading activity for Black History month. My students enjoyed reading and learned that if there is no struggle, there is no progress.

This a great story for my students.
