Praise and Reviews
I love this series. It shows exactly what to teach, when, so I don't try to introduce a tech skill too early (without the appropriate background). There aren't steps for each skill--I contacted the publisher before buying and I agree with them; there are just too many differing platforms out there. The important part was keeping tech fun by introducing only the skills they were ready to learn.

The author often lists free versions of software if the user doesn't have the suggested version, or you can contact them for ideas. And, they thought ahead to putting the entire workbook in a three ring binder, making it easy to remove reproducibles for copying without ruining the book.

BTW--lots of grading rubrics, samples, and a wonderful list of kid-friendly websites. If you're a homeschooler, this is a great resource.
