Reviews of SL Tech ebooks/books
So excited my principal approved a lot of resources from structured learning –SL customer
Your staff is amazing. So fast to help and so thorough. I am so appreciative. –SL customer
This books provides lots of good ideas for computer teachers. The lessons are geared a little higher than my kindergardeners can handle, so I simplify a lot of the lessons. Many of the lessons use TuxPaint, so if you plan to use these lessons make sure you download it on all of your computers. –Amazon customer
