Abeka Homeschool Curriculum Benefits and Savings
ABeka homeschool curriculum benefits Spanish-speaking mom and her daughter. Learn why she loves ABeka and her four frugal tips to save money easily.
Let me just tell you a little bit about myself. I'm Mexican and my primary language is Spanish.
My daughter and I have been using ABeka for the last three years (she is in 3rd grade now). I have had no problem understanding how to use it because ABeka is self-explanatory and user friendly, even for a person with weak English.
I have learned many things a long with my daughter; one of them is enunciation. The curriculum is its very organized and complete. There is a lot of seatwork involved which can be at times a little overwhelming but it reinforces the concepts learned.
The curriculum can be expensive, but there are ways to still save some money like: making your own manipulatives, using what you have at home, exchanging or recycling books with other homeschooling families.
You could also visit your local secondhand stores. I purchased a set of phonic cards which usually costs around $33; I found them for just $1 dollar!
I hope you find this information helpful. Thanks for the opportunity to share my opinion.
Thanks for sharing your story, Blanca! You not only offer valuable money-saving ideas, but give encouragement to others.
Many of us struggle with weaknesses or imperfect situations that would cause us to quit homeschooling or not even try. You are an example that anyone can homeschool when we put our mind to it, and homeschooling provides wonderful benefits to our WHOLE family. I too, have learned (and re-learned) many things along side my children. :) Blessings, Heather
