We have just recently started - actually just finishing the first Wanderer workbook and my daughter has to do a narrative essay. What I am not liking about this curriculum is it doesn't seem to help me guide her. I don't know if her essay should be 2 or 20 paragraphs - on a computer(obviously fixes errors) or on paper, take 1 hour or 6 hours - I am so lost with Moving beyond the Page and I don't where to go to get help?? The grammar section of it doesn't give enough examples to help her either. I don't know if there is some portion of the curriculum that I am missing, that will help me to guide her or am I just failing at this homeschooling thing :(

Hi Tina,

I'm sorry you are having a hard time with the curriculum. As you've noticed, the lessons at this level are written to the student. You DO still have a Parent Guide. The Parent Overview is in the back of each unit. It will look like the student lessons but in smaller print. That will help you to guide your child and will provide specific answers to activities. I hope this helps. I would be happy to speak with you if you would like to give me a call: (888) 316-8242

Thank you,
Vicki

Hi! We have the online version of the curriculum, and are using one login. My child knows the password to login, but has a different computer. Does this mean she could still, if she thought to do so, login and turn the parent view "on," thereby accessing the parent answer keys? I guess what I'm wondering is, can I always have the parent view "on" on my computer, but have her computer setting for this as "off"? If not, is there a way to easily print all the answer keys at once for an entire unit? Is it possible to have 2 logins? Thanks!

You can both log in simultaneously with the same login but both of you will always have access to the toggle switch to turn the answer key off and on. There is no way to have separate logins. And there is no way to print the answer keys in the online version. In the Age 9-11 hard copy the answers are separate and in the back of the book. Many parents remove these for easy access. You will have to trust that your student will not look if you don't want them to. At the older ages though, kids should be able to check their own work as well.

I can't find this toggle button to locate the answers.. Can someone direct me to where it is?

The toggle switch is only at the age 9-11 level and above.

Parent Guidance Offered Across the Age Levels
In the Age 4-5, 5-7, and 6-8 curriculum, there is a separate parent and student book. The intention is that the parent will be using the instructions to teach from their book while the child has their book open to the appropriate page.

In the Age 7-9 and 8-10 levels, we are starting to transition students to working more independently. At these two levels, the curriculum book is combined and addressed to both the parent and child. The guidance, instructions, and worksheets are all integrated within one curriculum book. The intention is that the parent and child would sit down together, review what they will be working on that day, complete the readings, and look over the activities to be completed. Then the student will be able to go work on their own with a parent available for questions. Work should always be reviewed together at the end of a workday.

At the Age 9-11 level and above, the curriculum is addressed directly to the student. At this level, most students should be able to work independently. if you prefer to maintain a more teacher-centric homeschool during these age levels, you can still do so, but you shouldn't have to. In the back of each hard copy curriculum book is a Parent Overview section that tells you what to discuss with your student, answers to problems on the worksheets, and rubrics for evaluation of the papers and projects. (Some parents find it convenient to remove these pages for their own reference). In the online version, the parent overview can be turned off or on using the toggle switch on the grey toolbar. It is important to remember that a parent/teacher should still be taking time to review and discuss the student's work even after they are working independently.
