Add-on kits for math?

Hi, we are currently using the 5-7 level and I was just looking ahead to 6-8 and noticed that a lot of the materials in the math kit are things that are also in the 5-7 kit. For example, we don't need a new abacus every year or another set of attribu . . .

Age 6-8 Concept 1, Unit 1, Lesson 8 -- stars don't fit on the flag??
comments: 2 | views: 1899 | last updated: 11/10/2015
I know it's not a big deal, because I can always print out a flag from somewhere else. But why have a flag for the kids to color and to cut out and place the stars in strips of five, when it's obvious that ten strips of stars are not going to fit in . . .

Hi, We're on Concept 1, Unit 3, lesson 7 about plants. I am confused about Activity 2 "Types of plants." It seems to me none of the plants in the activity belong in the "non-flowering without leaves" category. Is that correct?

Does anyone begin teaching a language at the elementary level? Is it necessary? If so, which language do you start with and why?

I tried MBTP 5-7 level with my kids before but it didn't work out due to my own unpreparedness. Now I am looking for next years curriculum and I am thinking of trying MBTP again. I am more seasoned in my role as a homeschooler and I think it still . . .

Hi, My daughter is technically in first grade. She just finished the 6-8 level. I am concerned that she isn't ready to read books like Charlotte's Web and Poppy on her own and probably won't be up to it by fall. Should I continue with her reading . . .
