“It’s a huge help to have lesson ideas laid out for you. I no longer have to spend hours on the Internet searching ideas for my children’s lessons, unless I want to. It is a huge time saver. I like having a choice of ideas to chose from. Variety is a wonderful tool when teaching multiple students.”
