Eliminate homeschooling stress with Abeka video curriculum. Find out Abeka dvds helped this mom continued to homeschool despite a trying first year...
This is our third year homeschooling and we started out using ABeka for my daughter when she was in fourth grade and she has excelled greatly. The first year was very had and trying but we decided to stick with it. My daughter did not like me being her teacher because I do tend to be a little hard on her. We did parent-led the first year and have since used the dvds for 5th and 6th grades.
The Abeka dvds are awesome. The teachers are able to teach and it takes a lot of pressure off of me as a parent. I am still with her and am able to monitor her learning closely. I do not regret it at all, We absolutely love Abeka. I needed a curriculum that would keep me accountable and would also challenge my daughter. The dvd's are expensive but as a family we just use our income tax refund so we can afford it.
If my daughter is learning something I don't remember, I can learn it with her and my son (who is almost 6) does some classes with us like Bible, history, health, and science (I don't grade him on it but he watches the videos to help him get familiar with some of the content. My son is a little over active so I will not be putting him in Abeka because he does have a little bit of a hard time staying focused for long periods.
So, although ABeka video curriculum is not for every child, I do suggest trying it. For our first year we bought our books used. The older versions of the books are fine to use; only a few problems change when the books are redone every few years. In conclusion, WE LOVE ABEKA!I love it when parents find the perfect homeschooling curriculum for their family.
