This was an amazing guide. The elements I took from it amazed my students as they were better able to understand the content. Thank you for making resources available for student teachers like myself.

This site has made my homeschooling experience as the parent/teacher so easy and amazing. My son loves working through the units and wishes this was how it was done at school when he went to public school. Love the variety and activities that make learning so much fun for both of us!!!!
