Hello, this is our first year with moving beyond the page and the 8-10 curriculum. I can see there are instructions and answers for us parents in the prep of the lesson. However, are there answers anywhere for the activities? For instance, we are answering Lesson 3 Activity 2 about the chores/responsibilities of Ma, Pa, Laura, and Mary but since I don't read this with him and he's unsure about a few of the answers, how do I help him without taking the time to read the whole book? At this point we are working on his little bit of independence.

The answer "key" for the Age 7-9 and 8-10 levels are within the curriculum book. At those two ages, we are transitioning students to working more independently so you will find the answers in each lesson. The intention is that the parent would sit down with their child to start the lesson and do the reading together. From there you would review the activities for the day then hand the book/online access over to the child to complete independently. I do see that this activity does not have a lot of parent information and I will let the writers know that we may need to add more parent guidance in this section for you.

I am having a hard time guiding the activities without answer keys provided for the parent. It is hard to "grade" an activity without answer examples provided as to what the curriculum is looking for. Is there any more parent guide that I am missing. I like this curriculum but parent guide, examples of the knowledge being taught, and answers are slacking. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Please see my note above. There are answers within each section provided for the parent. We do "assume" that the parent is present for the reading at this age so the answers to comprehension questions are not always explicitly written out. We also do not encourage "grading" all of the work. In this grade level, most homeschooling parents do not grade all materials and the papers/projects/unit tests at the end of each 3-week unit are usually sufficient to demonstrate mastery of the subject. We do provide answer keys and grading rubrics for all of these final projects. For more information on grading, you may want to look over our blog post...https://www.movingbeyondthepage.com/articles/what-about-grades/
