Opinions about moving beyond the page?


Recommended Posts

We tried it for about 8 weeks but it didn't work for us. I can see that it probably has good potential, it just wasn't a good fit. There were a lot of worksheets that seemed more like busy work. Many of the hands-on stuff seemed forced just to make it so there were always hands-on activities. My daughter loves hands-on so I thought that would be great. But I felt frustrated at the amount of time we were spending on (what I perceived as) rather pointless activities. It took a long time to get through our work each day, longer than I felt it should for what we covered. BUT, I am very much a box checker and it is hard for me to pick and choose activities. And my daughter is the type who can make a 5 minute craft take 20. She is also behind in writing and MBtP is a bit writing heavy. The content level and writing level don't quite line up, at least not for us. She needed the writing of a level lower, but could have handled the content of higher. I know a lot of people love it, and it's quite popular through our homeschool charter.

No experience here, but I'm really intrigued by MBtP. You might want to join the Facebook group Differently Schooled With Moving Beyond The Page- the members are very friendly and helpful. 

 

This blog has entries with her daughter using the lower levels:
