I have a son about to start kindergarten this year. I am going to use this with him. Maybe it is possible that most of the work could be done at home with a parent/sibling? I know it couldn't be as detailed as for the older ones (I also have a 6th grader), but I find it to be useful. I teach high school computer and business classes, so I don't get to use this with my students, but at home it is wonderful. Maybe you could make a copy for each student and let it be "homework". If parents actually had tools like this that actually explain what things are, why they are important, and how to help their child, I think they would be more likely to help their kids with it. Give it a shot, if it doesn't work well, maybe it will still work well for some. At least you will have given the parents a chance to help their child. Good luck!
