5 Stars Out Of 5
A Beka Book K4
July 17, 2016
A Beka is our favorite homeschooling curriculum. You cannot beat the quality, content and value of these books! We have been homeschooling since 2010 and have tried every other option out there for our children over the years. A Beka makes homeschooling fun, simple and affordable. The teacher's manuals are helpful but not necessary to make the books work for you and your child as well which saves you time and money in the long run.
The only problem we had with using this program is the ABC-123 book was a little advanced for our 4 yr old daughter since A Beka starts teaching letter sounds early with their 2's and 3's program. You can buy the 2's and 3's program and use it in conjunction with this program if you are just starting out with the K4 program or you can supplement the K4 program with a computer based program like Reading Eggs, ABC Mouse, Time4Learning, etc. We bought a Plaid Phonics book and a Rock N' Learn Letter Sounds DVD that helped bridge the gap for her and it worked just fine. I would also round this program out with a good literary package like "5 In A Row" so the book work doesn't become overwhelming because there is a lot of writing in these books for a 4 yr old. Overall, you can't beat A Beka Book as the best option out there for homeschooling! Hope this helps and God bless. :)
