We are currently figuring out the best way to distribute our lessons. Please bear with us! For now, we have two options. Our Teachers Pay Teachers (TPT) storefront is great to get a copy of the folder immediately in your Google Drive. Otherwise, download with us and you'll get a link to the Google Drive folder. You can then copy the files yourself.
If you have a TeachersPayTeachers account, this is a great option.
If you are participating in a workshop with us or have a coupon, this is the way to go!
