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 trying to decide what to do in terms of curriculum. I have a 2nd grader and 5th grader, who I want to homeschool due to COVID. My 5th grader has been identified as gifted in reading. My 2nd grader technically hasn't, but reads well beyond grade le . . .
Returns

Is the return process really as simple as they state? My daughter is almost 4 but through everything I am looking at, 6-8 should be easy for her to do. As a single mom though, I am super hesitant to spend several hundred dollars on something that onc . . .

Can I skip around in concepts and not follow the order? So, can I do history before I do climate and weather?

Hello! I am strongly considering using MBTP for my gifted 8 year old son. He will be in 3rd grade in the fall. I'm vacillating between 7-9 and 8-10 for him simply because he is a reluctant writer and the jump in writing in 8-10 is intimidating me a b . . .

How to I access the books that go along with the online curriculum? Is there a link to a PDF that I am missing?
Sequence of units

I am considering buying one 9 week unit to try the program. We are homeschooling our fifth grader for the first time due to Covid. He is definitely a hands on learner and needs to be actively engaged so this curriculum seems like a good fit for us. . . .

How does it look with 3 students doing the same package? I get duplicating the consumables/unit books, but what about the readers books. I really don't want 3 copies of each book. Can anyone who has taught multiples shed light on this program and how . . .

Hi! My kids are just 6 (grade 1) and just 8 (grade 3). I am going to homeschool them for the first time ever, due to COVID. No learning option has felt right or good until I found MBTP. I am finally feeling excited, inspired, and like I have found t . . .

I know this might sound like a lot of work...possible that this curriculum could be fully online with video lessons? Either having live classes going through the curriculum (Zoom) or pre recorded lessons? As a parent who suddenly has to work as a . . .

I have been homeschooling my girls ages 9 and 11 for 3+ years and we have jumped all over the place in curriculum. The 9 year old has ADHD and dyslexia and the 11 year old has ADD. They hate reading books and do not know how to write a proper paragra . . .

Hello, I have a 2E son with apraxia. Obviously there is a good amount of reading and I expect that he will do some independently. However, due to his vision issues and apraxia reading quickly becomes tiring for him. However, he has an AMAZING abilit . . .
