The Abeka reading program offers three distinct levels of instruction for homeschoolers. They offer Abeka phonics books, primary through advanced readers, and literature courses.
We have used all three levels of their books throughout the years. Our children have enjoyed listening to their stories in the beginning before learning to read for themselves.
Their phonics instruction lays a solid foundation upon which they are able to add more advanced homeschool books later on. Many families have shared with me how their children have become very proficient readers since using this traditional course of study.
Some of the characteristics of the program include:
This publisher has done a great job of building upon foundational skills taught in the earlier grades. At grade three, Read & Think skill sheets can be used to increase speed and comprehension. These short, fun skill sheets are very easily completed by most children.
In grades seven and eight, they offer Of People and Of Places, introductory anthologies of works by notable authors. American, World, and English literature volumes, complete with poetry and excerpts of classical works, conclude their program.
