Moving Beyond the Page - This Year's Curriculum Choice!

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


  1. We have used a couple of the science and language arts units from MBTP as supplemental units and I love that they are literature-based and hands-on!

  2. Thank you for your feedback on that!!!
