Dear AH Co-op,
I am a retired teacher and I run a software company called Softbasics that provides free and very low cost software to families who take their children's educations seriously and are willing to make the effort to assist in mastery (mostly homeschooling families have requested copies and, in fact, many features, such as session summaries for important recordkeeping and study guides, have been included at their suggestion).
Over 7000 families have received copies of our Soft-Pak CD and we are currently providing full 7 program math, language arts, and testing Soft-Paks for just a $4 s&h (normally several math programs are offered for the s&h only and others may be added optionally but we are providing the full set at present). These programs offer printable and on screen options for all math and language arts objectives. They are not computer games - low graphics, high content, on-task.
Almost all requests come through recommendations from homeschooling families and many families have sent back very favorable comments about the usefulness of these programs:
Thank you so very much. This is EXACTLY the type of program I was looking for. Simple and straight-forward and to the point. I will definitely recommend it to all my friends and family.
You should see my son using your product. It is amazing. Again, thank you for this product. It is wonderful.
It has been great! As the kids master one area, I start them on the next and it goes by so quickly! Thanks.
These are for all USA Windows users with children ages 6-13.
If you feel your group could benefit, I would be happy to provide a CD to any families - we offer mail, PayPal, and credit card options. Delivery and installation is guaranteed or a refund is provided. http://www.vgernet.net/sbasics
