I love your curriculum and have used many, many pieces in my classes!
We purchased the Junior collection last year and have had great success implementing this curriculum with our 4th and 5th graders. We are excited to expand this program to our 2nd and 3rd graders.
They are simply amazing! Just what I needed for my startups.
