TechnoKids is such a great company to work with.

Last year I taught 10 homeschool kids in our coop using TechnoWonderland and TechnoSpecialist curriculum. I loved the way it was laid out including all the instruction as well as extra projects to reinforce what was learned. It kept me from having to create so much of the class materials and assignments myself. I'm going to do TechnoBiz (spreadsheets) with my youngest in the fall. Wish I could do them all.
