How do you space out your MBTP curriculum?

Hi Jennifer, we use the "suggested days" as a guideline. Depending on whether or not we decide to skip an activity, or conversely, to delve deeper into a subject, the time it takes to finish a lesson will vary. In general, we try to pace ourselves so that we do not take any longer than 4 - 6 weeks per unit (we are on the year-round schedule). Along with MBTP, we also study a foreign language, math program, and other extra courses, so it is rare that we are able to complete all of the MBTP lessons according to their suggested timeframes. Additionally, you will find that it may take shorter/longer for certain lessons or activities to be completed depending upon your child's abilities (writing, reading comprehension, planning skills, etc.). One thing you won't have to worry about with MBTP is that your child will run out of challenging things to do--the program is chock full of enrichment and extension activities.

I also like to make check marks as I complete the activities (some activities are skipped). I wish they had boxes for the lower grades. We have more than one person in our house (college student daughters) leading the lessons. So it helps whoever that is helping with leading a lesson know where the last person left off.
