 Ready for School?

This past year my 9 year old wanted to Study Ancient Egypt for history. We had a great time. Then I found out about this. I’m already looking to get a couple of these to help us review as we get back into the swing of things this school year.

I highly suggest you use Hands-On materials with elementary students (especially those with dyslexia) and that is exactly what you get here.. Check out these awesome resources from our friends at Educents. Trust me curriculum doesn’t get much more cost effective than this.
