  1. Mostly, I'd love to hear from others who have used Abeka for Language for Grades 4 and up. I used it our first year of homeschooling for 3rd grade, along with FLL. That went well. Currently using CLE for my 3rd graders and have mostly used something else for my 6th grader this year. I'm considering Abeka for 7th, or possibly CLE. But I think I would have to start in the 600s with CLE for my DD. For her sake (having younger siblings), I would prefer something on "grade level." Workbooks for language work pretty well for us, I don't mind Christian content, and plan to supplement
  2. Used it? Love it? Hate it? Here's what I'm talking about.
  3. Hi there, Has anyone here used any of the Abeka Reading Program? I am looking at Grade 5 and can't seem to work out from the sample what exactly is in the Teacher's Editions. What exactly is in the TE of the program and does the TE have questions about each story? Or how exactly does it work? I can only see the sample of the Student Edition which has a few questions at the end of each story. Is there another TE manual that goes into more depth as you read along with each story? Does the student have any writing to do in qnswering questions etc?> Thank you Sherid
  4. I am in a unique situation. Either in December or in the beginning of the year we will be placing our four children, grades k-7th in a traditional Christian school. I have been homeschooling since the beginning, mostly following the Classical Conversations track along with a smattering of Sonlight, Tapestry of Grace and Veritas Press online courses and their self-paced Omnibus course. Most of these curriculums use living books. My kids have Memory Mastered multiple times and my 7th grader is really doing well this year in Challenge A. Since we have been following a CC model it will be a hu
  5. We just finished up Abeka Kindergarten!! Yay, and now onto 1st Grade!! I was wondering if any other Abeka traditional homeschoolers, could help out!! I was so excited to begin planning for 1st grade and have ordered my curriculum and am reorganizing my room!!! Knowing with a 1st grader, and an 18 month old boy "my explorer" scheduling and consistency would be key next year!! Then we found out we are expecting a new little one in January!! Suddenly I went into panic mode!!! How am I going to do Abeka 1st grade with 2 little ones!! Anyway enough backstory :) So I have several questions
  6. I really need advice choosing my curriculum this year for A age 11, E age 6, and Z age 4. Primarily I am asking for suggestions on the younger two and encouragement with A. I feel like I have failed miserably many times with A. Backstory...I schooled my eldest to from K-3 using Abeka which was very successful despite the difficulties of finishing all the pages. (Yes, I am a check marker.) C and N tested above level when they entered public school and are top in their classes today, still ps. Due to A's age, she would get the least amount of my time by default. I found it very difficult to fi
  7. We pulled our 3rd grade DD out of public school this school year (in October). In many ways, we're still trying to figure out what works best for us, and I can't for the life of me decide on what to use for LA next year! I'll have two 1st graders and a 3rd grader. So, for Grammar this year (3rd grade), we've used Abeka Language and a little bit of FLL 3. Abeka came highly recommended to me, and I figured we would continue it next year, but now I'm not so sure. I go over things with my DD, but many pages seem like "too much" for her in independent work (she gets a lot wrong on some pa
  8. What is the hive's thought on Abeka chemistry? This will be a course that will be followed in a couple of years by AP Chemistry. The student will have only algebra 1 as a math background and will be taking geometry concurrently.
  9. So I think I've narrowed it down to these two for my 5th-grader-to-be.....thoughts, anyone? I love that the Abeka is colorful, she is ALL about that. I love that the Hake incorporates dictation/journaling. The Abeka sample only shows a grammar section, not a writing section- so not sure how much Abeka breaks down the writing process/writes to the student, so that could be a concern. Based on the tables of contents, I'm thinking they look equally rigorous. Love to hear feedback!
  10. I'm planning on having oldest dd (young 6th grader) go to Kinetic Books Pre-Algebra eventually, but think she might need another year of arithmetic after she completes Abeka 6 (in the spring). She understands most concepts well (except for fractional percentages: 1 1/2% of 100, for example), but still makes simple computational errors (aka silly mistakes). I know a lot of people switch out of Abeka by now, but I'd like her to do either 7 or 8 first because I don't want her to struggle with KB. For those who have used Abeka 7 and/or 8, what do you think? Which one is a better bridge to
  11. I am wondering if anyone can give insight into the Kindergarten Social Studies for Abeka. I am trying to piece the workbook and visuals together and I am confused. Also did you just do one focus each week or do 2 different ones: meaning did you do American History 2 days a week and community helpers 3 days a week or just Community Helpers, finish that book and then move on?? Thanks so much!!
  12. I've been trying to figure out what to use for my son's 2nd grade phonics. I believe he still needs to continue with phonics for awhile. He's used Abeka for learning to read/phonics for K and 1st grade. He can read really well (about 3rd grade level), but he doesn't know all the rules or understand spelling rules (like suffixes and prefixes, etc, syllabication, etc.). Abeka works, I just hate teaching it and I've not had very good experiences with the company. But I have no idea what to use. For LA next year, I don't have anything nailed down. I'm thinking I'll use Primary Language
  13. Can someone explain to me why Abeka teaches Cursive as their main writing before they teach manuscript? I am starting k4 this year with my daughter and I know she isn't ready for Cursive. I purchased the manuscript curriculum to teach her first but I am confused why they would do cursive first. Any ideas??
  14. Today, I went to a Classical Christian school. They mentioned that they might move the kindergarten students away from Abeka to either Spelling to Write and Read or Saxon Phonics. 1. Can you tell me about Spelling to Write and Read and/or Saxon Phonics? 2. What is your experience with SWR and/or Saxon Phonics? Strengths? Weaknesses? 3. Do you have an opinion on why a school would move from Abeka phonics to SWR or Saxon Phonics? 4. How should I prepare my child to learn this material? 5. Comments?
  15. Lets just say you had to switch to a more textbook style of school. You hated the thought of it, but due to unforeseen circumstances, you think you may have to go this route. Which of these two companies would you go with and why? Thanks!:)
  16. I'm new here, mostly reading the great advice. I've been researching on and on because I need to go a different route next year than I've been on. We've been using mostly SL LA which is not working and we just started IEW but I need some good, sequential, solid Grammar and Spelling that's as independent as possible for my 4th and 6th graders (and something my 1st and PreK'er can slide into in the next few years). A decent Grammar program with diagramming and Spelling that includes rules and root studies, preferably in a workbook format is what I'm looking for. I've narrowed it
  17. I'm debating what to do after my ds finishes A Beka K Phonics. I looked at the end of the book and he's going to be reading and writing words like "beach, scream, brick. spell" etc. I was thinking about continuing with Abeka phonics and language without doing the handwriting and spelling (already planning to use A Reason for Handwriting and All about Spelling), but the cost for Abeka language with readers for first grade is about $170, including the IG's, readers and workbooks, etc. That's a lot! I already own First Language Lessons. Would he be getting enough Phonics instruction wit
  18. Finding a play that children can perform is worse than you'd ever imagine. Most of them can be placed in the twaddle (did we ever decide on a better word-description/ label to replace that term?) category. I want classic, I want meat, I want the kids to have an engaging, profound experience on stage. I don't want stupid jokes and scripts that don't have any meaning off the stage (or *on* them for that matter). Of course, I'm often looking for plays that can be performed for free or cheap, but even when I do look at the library for plays to order I'm so disappointed! Does an
  19. We are in the middle of deciding on a math curriculum for our family and could use some input. We have a 2nd grader and a kinder that we will be schooling this year and have it narrowed down to pretty much Saxon or Abeka for math. We started our new 2nd grader on Abeka across the board when she started school and were really pleased with it. This will be our first year taking a more classical approach to their lessons and so we are looking at new curriculum across the board. I have heard great things about both and actually I had Saxon at the private Christian school I attended in middle schoo
  20. I used Abeka's Handbook for Reading to teach my daughter how to read. We loved it. Right now, she is reading from their 1st grade readers and doing well. However, I did no use Abeka's handwriting program. I opted to use another one that I liked better. But, my daughter is now writing notes, making cards, writing letters, etc. and she is not applying the phonic rules she knows to the words she is sounding out, so her spelling is terrible. I think it's time to start some spelling program with her... Should I use Abeka's spelling? Since that's what she is using for phonics and re
  21. I am new here and new to homeschooling. My dd requested to be homeschooled for 9th grade a few months ago. We haven't decided for sure if we will. A major factor is the KEES money here in KY. It sounds like homeschooled students only receive a one time amount based on their ACT scores. Going to a high school, one would receive a larger amount based on grades and GPA. It is also, granted every year for 4 years as long as the student's GPA is within a certain range. For example, my son, who is graduating from public high school this year, will receive $2300 per year (2 semesters) for 4 ye
  22. I would like to get input / advice regarding language curriculum. What have you used for your elementary aged kids, what has worked (or not) and why? My daughter will be starting 2nd grade, and we have been using Abeka for the last 3 years (K4, K5, and 1st). I have been looking at First Language Lessons from Jessie Wise or Language 2 from Abeka, but I am open to other ideas for: grammar copywork writing Please let me know what your experiences have been. Her reading is fairly advanced, so we don't need to spend more time on phonics, and we're happy with our math program (MUS) a
  23. Hello, I recently got my hands off every book in this (The Teacher Key, Quiz/Test Student and Teacher books, the Solutions Manual and the Student Edition), but don't have the curriculum (daily lessons manual). Is it possible for someone to give me an idea of one of the lessons please? Thank you, Adrian.
  24. I am using FLL 2 w/ my 2nd grade son who is doing fine with it. I remembered dividing words into syllables, marking vowels, identifying the root word/prefix/suffix, and learning about the different "tenses" of words, & 1st person, 2nd person, 3rd person... In elementary grades I was taught with Abeka. I looked ahead in ds' FLL 1/2 book and it does not cover these things. Does FLL 3 or 4 cover them? Are they even that important and should I worry about it being "missed"? I'm making myself so nuts over this. I started this particular thread of thought over a month ago and actually
