Moving Beyond the Page /Online (sign in)
Moving Beyond the Page is available in both hard copy and /Online formats. Read on to determine whether our /Online format is a good fit for your family.
/Online or Hard-Copy Curriculum
Moving Beyond the Page curriculum is available in either hard-copy or online format. Our online and hard-copy curriculum are EXACTLY the same. You are not choosing between a hands-on, literature-based curriculum and a fully digital sit in front of the computer all day curriculum. With either curriculum, you and your child will be completing the same activities, reading the same books, and finishing the same projects. The difference really comes down to preference. If you would like to read your daily lessons on an iPad or iPhone, the online curriculum is right for you. If you like to have a hard-copy book in your hands, the choice is clear.
This page describes the /Online curriculum in detail. If you need more help deciding, check out this FAQ.
Moving Beyond the Page /Online Benefits
- Less expensive than hard copy curriculum
Moving Beyond the Page /Online is a less expensive alternative to hard copy curriculum. With no curriculum books to print, stock, and ship, we are able to pass the savings on to you.

- No shipping charges (great for international, Alaska, and Hawaii customers)
You will not pay any shipping charges for the portion of your purchase that is made up on /Online units. If you live in Alaska, Hawaii, or internationally, this can save you a shipping surcharge that can be between 20% and 50% of your order. Note that shipping charges may apply to the parts of your order that are actually shipped.

Moving Beyond the Page curriculum features links to a variety of online material including articles, images, videos, and games. With the /Online version, this content is quick and easy to access.

- Integrated with IdeaShare to share ideas with other parents
Moving Beyond the Page /Online is integrated with our unique community of parents and educators through IdeaShare™. IdeaShare is an online tool that lets parents share ideas and resources that they found helpful while implementing a lesson.

The licensing of Moving Beyond the Page /Online is designed to provide you with as much flexibility as possible. We know that sometimes life interrupts even the best laid plans, so we designed our licensing with this in mind.
Here is how the licensing works.
Before you activate your online unit:
You have limited access to the unit. You can view each of the lessons, but you can't download student activity pages until the unit is activated.
Once you activate your online unit:
You will have one year of full access, and you will be able to download student activity pages.
To renew an expired unit for 1/2 price:
Visit the account section of our website.
1. Units that have not been activated will never expire.
2. Online licenses are subject to our standard 30 day return and 90 day exchange policy.
Curriculum is licensed to individual families. Families may use a single subscription for multiple siblings in their family, but children from different families must each purchase their own subscription. If you are interested in using Moving Beyond the Page for a co-op or school, please contact us for licensing and pricing details.
Here are a few benefits to this approach:
Unused units NEVER expire.
If you buy your curriculum today, you don't have to worry about falling behind in the curriculum. You can even save unused units for a younger sibling and use them a few years after you originally purchased them.
You will not be rushed.
Each unit is designed to last approximately 3 weeks. Since you will have one full year to finish, you will have plenty of time.
You have flexibility.
You may want to do units out of order. Maybe you are planning a relevant trip, there is a presidential election coming up, or a holiday is just around the corner. For whatever reason, you may want to do units in a different order. With our flexible licensing, you can do units in whatever order you choose.
If you have additional questions, please contact us. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.
