A few words from happy customers:

“We’ve been using Blackbird and Co. for three years now. In this time, I have seen a tremendous change in my son. He used to hate having to read and hated writing even more! Since we started, our minds and vocabularies have been opened!”


“Thank you very much for your fast response and great customer service.”


“As a former English teacher and now homeschooling parent, I’m picky about literature and writing curriculum. Blackbird & Co. offers guides which promote critical thought and depth in understanding, and prompt my students to engage in thoughtful discussions. These guides are also great for multi-grade teaching and tailoring my kids’ assignments to their abilities so that they feel encouraged to learn and able to succeed. I’ve used several units and guides, from Earlybird to Level 2, and love it all!”


“We started using Blackbird when our son started first grade. We were looking for a new ELA curriculum that he could enjoy and would be sufficiently challenging to help him grow. We found that Blackbird fulfilled all our needs and expectations, plus so much more! 
Since he started reading early on, we needed some assistance customizing an ELA curriculum to suit his individual needs. The customer support we experienced with Blackbird was amazing!! They mot only helped us find what we needed but also gave us so much helpful advice and resources. 
The way the curriculum is designed is genius and so creative. Even our child’s teacher was quite impressed by it. She now frequently recommends Blackbird to parents in search of a superlative ELA curriculum. Thank you all in Blackbird & Company for your fantastic work!!!”


“We have been loving your new products and, equally, how very swift and responsive you are to our orders and queries. I feel like we have found a hidden gem!”


“I’ve had a lot of issues with companies and curriculum, but your company is exemplary in regards to curriculum, service, and delivery – thank you :)!!”


“My sixth grader really enjoyed the Elemental Journal! He appreciated every bit of it: the autonomous study, the quirky Basher Science book, the informative Elements text, and the engaging University of Nottingham videos. He regularly expressed to me his excitement in learning elements’ details which directly connect to life itself; he wasn’t simply focusing on the atomic numbers and abbreviations, but how and where the elements are used. As a byproduct, he memorized nearly all of the Periodic Table!”


Thank you for your great customer service today. I just wanted to say that your products are excellent!  I have two sons with autism and it can be difficult to find curriculum that has such extensive choices across reading levels. The content of Blackbird and Company’s literature selections is wonderful; a mix of traditional and modern readers with profound content. The guides are scaffolded at every level, leading the student gently toward independent learning and thinking. I really enjoy the depth and quality of the comprehension questions, the suggested activities and addition discussion questions presented at the end of each reading – no busy work. The research guides are also incredible. They are structured with a natural progression that walks the student through the process of notetaking, documenting, and organizing information researched to be rewritten.  Again, thank you for such high-quality curriculum.
