Absolutely satisfied!

I have not yet had a chance to use the curriculum as my son won’t be ready for first grade until next year but I have had a chance to open the PDFs and look them over. I’m really excited to get started and I love how everything is put together. We have two boys on the autism spectrum and I was happy to see the section for autism students. We don’t have a lot of money and being able to have an entire curriculum for first grade for only a review is truly something I can’t say thank you enough for! You are amazing and thank you for all you do. I will be revisiting the website again in the future!
