I have so many wonderful things to say about this curriculum but don't even know where to begin. I am using the level 6-8 for my 6 and 8 year olds in 1st and 2nd grade. They both daily ask when we are going to do our work and even will ask to do more later in the day. My 5th grader is doing the 9-11 level. She just completed her final project and made a memorial for Timothy from The Cay. This project actually had her and her older brother collaborating together (and cooperating with each other I might add) on it. It was amazing what they came up with and how they put it all together with no help from mom. She said she likes the different projects in it and its not boring. My oldest is in the 7th grade, he is completing his last concept in the 10-12 level. When reading his last book, The Giver, he had a hard time putting down. He really enjoyed reading it. He was very excited to talk about what he had read and help me to understand what was going on in the book. He was a very reluctant reader in his early grades and took awhile before actually liking to read. Now I have to tell him to go out and play instead of reading. He was just going through a list of books he had read and enjoyed with MBtP. He said "I liked almost all of them. The Giver is my all time favorite and even a book I would read just for pleasure."
I had my older two in public school up until my oldest was to enter Jr. High. It has been a journey homeschooling all 4 but being able to use MBtP has made the journey so much easier. It is rich with critical thinking, research, hands on learning and challenging enough to not burn them out, but to keep them interested. I love what I am learning along with them. And to see the improvement they are making when I read their writings. I am constantly amazed by the hands on projects this curriculum has. A very high quality curriculum you can't go wrong with. We Love It!! Can't wait to find out more about plans for the high school level.
