This year's curriculum choice is really an old choice for me, but it is only this year that I am able to get it for a couple of reasons. The major reason was probably because I was a new home schooling mom, and like most mommies...was very unsure of just how to home school. Well with 2 1/2 school terms under my belt, an attempt at an academic co-op, one full kind-of-box-curriculum, one school year of an eclectic style curriculum choice, I am elated to finally be starting our school year with hopes of continuing throughout the girls' education using Moving Beyond the Page.
This is a complete curriculum for homeschooling the gifted kid, or any kid using the gifted approach.
Quick back story: My youngest brother was tested and taught in the gifted class of the public school system from 2nd grade through his high school graduation. He also graduated with honors. It was a worthy curriculum used only once a week for only a select few students. Once I became a parent, and gained a vested interest in education, I often thought that it would benefit every student to have access to the gifted program of the public school system. That may be impossible due to funding primarily, which I understand, but it doesn't change the fact.
At any rate, that little story may give you some insight into why I was sooooo thoroughly excited about happening upon the MBTP curriculum a couple of years ago. It is based on research, meets state standards, and is written by certified teachers, a certified gifted teacher, an education specialist...all who are homeschooling moms. Folks it doesn't get any better than that!
Anyway, what's your curriculum choice this year?
Oh a really great thing about Moving Beyond the Page is that it can be used as a complete curriculum, or as a supplement!
Happy Home Schooling y'all!
ps. I'm glad to be back...or sorta back...lol
