I love Abeka! I started homeschooling when my two sons were in 1st and 2nd grade. I started out trying to use multiple programs because they were given to me. Lets just say I was not wired like a College trained Teacher! It became so stressful trying to plan out our days and the stress of making sure my boys were getting a good education overwhelmed me. Within 1 week I completely started over with ALL Abeka curriculum. It was wonderful! I invested in the Curriculum Teaching manuals and they basically outlined each lesson plan along with great ideas on how to teach the lesson.
I understand some complaints about Abeka being repetitive, but I like that it reinforces the material. AND each year it covers part of it again just more in depth as the child's ability to understand more complex situations grows. Another great thing about Abeka is the subjects work together. When they are studying denominators in math...its one of their spelling words. Extra reinforcement!
This is my 4th year homeschooling and my sweet baby girl is starting K5.
AND JUST AN ADDED BONUS!!!! Abeka only makes major changes to their curriculum every 12 years. SO, those of us with multiple children can save hundreds of dollars by being able to use them for more than one year without worrying about updated versions. I am fortunate that I will be able to use all my books until my K5 student is done with them.
