Moving Beyond the Page & Right Start Math?

Looking for opinions and experiences with Moving Beyond the Page and Right Start Math.

Background: we are new to homeschooling this year. My daughter is in Kinder and is age 5 1/2. She can read at around the 3rd grade level and understands basic math concepts, like addition, subtraction, and even some very simple multiplication. But she could use a more solid math foundation and doesn't necessarily know other concepts really well, like money, calendar/time, and such. She also has a kindergarten or 1st grade level of skill in handwriting (she can and does write words but reverses some letters sometimes and needs to work on spacing between words, learn punctuation, etc.). So what I'm trying to say is that she is strong and above grade levels in some areas and at grade level in others. She enjoys worksheets but also enjoys hands on activities and crafts or games.

I'm looking into MBTP for ages 6-8 or 7-9 and Right Start Math level B or C.

I want to suggest looking at McRuffy for math. My kids really love it. It's very hands on and isn't as hard on the mom as Right Start.

I just discovered MBTP this year, and really wish it was in my budget.. but if I want to keep being a SAHM I have to do it frugally, so it's not.
