It is giving me tons of ideas to use in my classroom. –TPT Customer

“I now have all grades (K-5) and think of these as my bible for teaching! Thank you!” –Teachers Pay Teachers Customer


Great resource for my class.–TPT Customer



I had been moved out of the regular classroom and into teaching k-6 computers with no guidelines or curriculum to follow. I had built a rough plan on what to cover but knew I had holes and wasn’t always consistent across the grades. I came across this series and thought I would start in the middle to see if I could build up and down from it. Once I had the book and started using it, I knew I needed the whole series. Why reinvent when the perfect answer as ready for me. I accomplished far more with my younger grades than I had thought I could. The lessons are ease to use, or adapt to my needs. I like the vocabulary included so I am stressing the same words across all grades. –Amazon Customer


Great ideas for kindergarten. Thanks. –TPT Customer


Love the lesson ideas, but we don’t have KidPix. We use Tuxpaint, but the features are so different that many of the lessons have to be modified (tuxpaint is much harder to navigate for K than KidPix). I LOVE the links, and can use some of the lesson ideas at the beginning of the year. Your website is FABULOUS and you do a great job getting the info out there. For K-5 tech teachers like me, you provide a great service in getting the info. out there. Thanks  –TPT Customer


This resource was a wonderful help to me as I am teaching Kindergarten Technology classes for the first time this year. The book is very easy to navigate, with clear lesson plans, based on national technology standards. All the links, sites, etc. that I have used have been current. I would recommend this book to anyone who has minimal experience teaching technology classes to young children. –Amazon Customer


I’m impressed with this book series, and hope to get all K-5 levels at some point. I enjoy the digital version as it has live links. It is easy to use for most students, and helps with planning for me. For a new K-5 computer teacher it has been most beneficial.  –Amazon Customer


Thank you so much for this curriculum source! I’ve been quite lost with my kinders. This brings an excellent foundation. –TPT Customer


You saved me…and saved me time too! Thanks…this is just what I needed! –TPT Customer
