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 . . .

Other MBtP Parent Sites?

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.

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 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 . . .

My 12 year old is not strong in writing and doesn't enjoy reading novels (on his own) and seems to best fit the 8-10 level. However, I realize that this is significantly below "grade level". Should I worry about grade level or go with wher . . .

Where to place an almost 10yo boy?

Our son will be 10 in early May. He isn't a very strong writer and I really think he would do best in 7-9. When I was showing him things he got very upset that he would be working in that age group. He doesn't really like to read novels and I worr . . .
