I'm trying to understand the reason your lessons provide the alphabet out of order, but can not find the answer to this. I know there has to be a reason, and would like to understand it.

The link for the reading rainbow show doesn't work. I tried numerous times to getting it to work and kept saying wrong plug in or something to that affect. Youtube makes you pay too. Just easier to go on Amazon prime to pay the $1.99 for the show. Sh . . .

From unit 4 what do you do with a tail like this for unit 7 but no elephants. Doesn't say in unit 4 but does in unit7. Skipped that activity since those animals were long gone

You have me use the red and green apples for the craft that involves gluing on trees on page 82 yet you want us to use the apples again for a counting activity on page 83 and then save it for another activity in week 16. Am I supposed to ruin the cra . . .

Question on the Holiday units
comments: 3 | views: 2563 | last updated: 8/25/2016
I read that you do the units in order because of the way things progress. Forgive me if this seems absurd, but does that hold true for the Halloween, Christmas & February days units also?
Question about how to use the curriculum

Hi. I'm planning on using Moving Beyond the Page with my son who just turned 4 years old. I've ordered the 4-5 curriculum and the ABeCeDarian reading curriculum and I've started looking over the materials. I've noticed that the letters are introdu . . .
Autistic ADHD child

I started this with my 5 yrs old son two years ago and it was too much for him. He just could not focus and did not have the language skills to have any form of discussion. I shelved it temporarily. We did a year of ABA therapy, OT, speech and group . . .

I could cite several studies that show how great reading aloud is for young children. It's something that many parents overlook, but it's one of the best things you can do for your child. Check out the reading aloud suggestions at the bottom of this . . .
Order of the Concepts - what is it?
comments: 6 | views: 1626 | last updated: 4/12/2016
Does anyone know what the logic is to the order of the concepts in the age 4-5 curriculum? The concepts are each based on a letter of the alphabet, but I can't seem to make sense of the order they have chosen. It is not alphabetical... Thanks!

How much we loved A is for Musk Ox! The book makes me laugh and laugh. The whole family thinks it is funny. I even had my husband read it aloud to me one morning. Just to me. I REALLY like the activities for this curriculum. The baggies of the cr . . .
Is 4-5 thematic?
comments: 2 | views: 2226 | last updated: 5/29/2015
Hi I'm interested in this curriculum but I am wondering if it is thematic. I know that peak with books was with groupings such as basics, traditional tales etc. Now I see a more letter of the week bent. Are there over arching themes over a few weeks . . .

What are your thoughts about Logic of English along with Moving Beyond the Page plus Right start ? Too much for a mom with lots going on already?
Love the curriculum, but a few editing and manipulatives details to fix

Hello! I just wanted to say how much I love this curriculum, it's exactly what I was trying to do with a curriculum I had to use as a bilingual teacher in Honduras, and what I wished for when I was in high school! I have found the curriculum to be ea . . .
The Christmas Wish

So the curriculum has replaced this book for the Wee Sing Christmas. Are there lesson plans/questions that go with his book since the Curriculum parent book we have ask us questions about Wee Sing rather than The Christmas Wish.
