Abeka Homeschool Reading Program

by Wendy
(Michigan)

Many would say that Abeka is very advanced and I am not saying that it is the greatest. From my personal experience, however, I will say that all of my grandchildren are advanced readers because of their program.


I started teaching them phonics using Leap Frog Letter Factory from there we advanced to the Abeka Little Books and basically follow Abeka's reading program.

We also add in the free Starfall readers and it is fun for not only them but me as well.

My 3 year old is well on the way to reading following the same path.

It is so exciting to see them reading. It is as if a light is turned on that will not go out.

Yay! I love your ABeka homeschool reading testimonial, Wendy; thanks for sharing! Blessings, Heather :)

ABeka Readers for Homeschooling Kindergarten

Homeschooling Kindergarten with ABeka

Homeschooling Kindergarten with ABeka

Kill two (or three) birds with one stone: Strengthen your homeschooling kindergarten child's faith, while learning to read with ABeka readers; preschoolers enjoy them too!

We used the ABeka readers for Kindergarten; theses short books are wonderful. I love that they have Christian stories and let the kids learn how to read and learn more about God at the same time.

We have used them for 1.5 years. Our oldest reads to our youngest and that is how they learned how to read as well. Their books range from very beginner to the "I know how to read" level. They are pretty inexpensive especially if you buy them bulk on the internet.

Dawn, thanks for sharing about the ABeka readers for kindergarten and how your little ones learn right along side your older child. Happy reading! Heather :)

A Beka Readers Grades 2-3 Homeschool Review

by Zoey Lawrence
(West Palm Beach, Florida)

Fourth grade student tests above grade level in reading after using A Beka. Check out his mom's A Beka Readers homeschool review...

My son was enrolled in public school for k-1st grade. I decided to pull him out of public school and he was home schooled for grades 2-3. I started using the A Beka readers and we both loved them!

I liked that the vocabulary is more challenging than the books that he was reading in PS,and had reading comprehension questions at the end of each story as well the fact that the stories were Christian themed.

My son really liked the variety of stories in each reader and the explanation of the vocabulary words that were introduced into each story.

Since the each Reader packet comes with 5 or 6 books, the reading and vocabulary gradually increases with the completion of each reader, so he continually progresses.

Because of financial complications, I had to enroll my son back into public school for 4th grade. He was tested to see if he was on grade level because he was home schooled for two years. He tested on a 5th grade reading level and he was placed into 4th grade gifted classes.

Now that I am homeschooling again, I continue to use A Beka readers because they have improved my sons reading and vocabulary, and we love them!

Thanks for taking the time to help other parents learn about A Beka's homeschool reading curriculum and sharing how your son's reading progressed using the A Beka Readers. Your comments are so helpful! Blessings, Heather :)
