My son is turning 5 soon but has a late September birthday and therefore won't be entering Kindergarten at our local homeschool co-op until next year when he will be about to turn 6. We are doing a different homeschool preschool program this year for . . .

I actually already use MBtP (4-5, 5-7, soon to launch into 6-8) but wasn't sure where to post this. My state (SC) requires submission of a "syllabus explaining weekly schedule of instruction in each course, including pages to be covered in ea . . .
Which age range

I am seriously considering using this curriculum this year. But, I can't decide in which age range to place my daughter. She recently turned 8 and should be in the 3rd grade. She is reading at a 5th grade level, but we have been doing another program . . .
Canadian Orders?

Just curious since I don't see a "shipping" information page... Do Canadian orders count as "international" and thus need to be faxed? Or can we order directly online? If so, is the 'estimated shipping' in my cart already not . . .

I'm considering homeschooling my 3 and 5 year olds (19 months apart). I am very interested in this program as it seems like it will be the best fit for my teaching style and their learning styles. My 3 year old will be 4 in September and has never . . .

Is there a package option listed by concept? I'm trying to spread our spending out a bit.
Other MBtP Parent Sites?
comments: 3 | views: 291 | last updated: 2/7/2019
This forum seems a bit slow. Is there somewhere else the MBtP parents hang out online that perhaps has more traffic? I guess I am just used to the faster pace of some other forums.

Age 7-9 daily schedule (also asking about the possibility of a 4 day week)

Hello, brand new to MBtP (though i've been researching for a few months). I'm struggling to find a sample that shows me what the average day for a age 7-9 user would see for the complete MBtP package (excluding math, obviously). Is there one on the . . .

I want to know if the online option for 4-5 year olds is completely online or if their is a paper student book included? Also would like to know how the online curriculum is any different from the paper curriculum.
3 Days a Week?

Hey all! I was just wondering if anybody homeschools with MBTP doing just 3 days a week? We go to our co-op twice a week, so my other 3 days are the days I'll be trying to get the work in. How does it work for you? Do you double up lessons each da . . .

I just pulled my daughter out of public school and have ordered a curriculum only package for ages 6-8. I saw after the order was placed to allow 1-3 weeks to receive the materials? Does it really take this long to receive the package? Does anyone ha . . .

I am trying to decide whether to go with Moving Beyond the Page or Bookshark for my 5th grader. On the Bookshark website, it states that students using their curriculum have significantly higher SAT scores than users of other curriculum. I realize th . . .

We will be using Beautiful Feet for History and will like to use MBTP literature unit studies along with MBTP Social Studies because BF covers History but not much of the Social Studies. Has only used this combination? I already have science curricul . . .
