As my regular readers know, our family uses the A Beka Academy DVD homeschool program. This will be our 8th year, and we have used it for all five our kids. This year our kids will be in 7th, 5th, 3rd, 2nd, and K5.
4 out of 5 our kids used the K4 program. It was not available when our oldest was that age. We wondered if it was worthwhile when A Beka made the K4 DVD’s, but we decided to use it with our second son so he would have “school” with his big brother. We were really happy with it and have used it with all of the rest of our kids. It is a great preparation for school–especially for families that are planning on continuing with the A Beka curriculum. The kids not only learn to identify letters in K4, they learn actual reading and writing in cursive. The teacher, Mrs. Wasser, is fantastic. All of my kids adored her. She is wonderful in Bible time and relates so well to the kids.
Anyway, the reason that I am writing this post is because I got an announcement from A Beka Academy yesterday that they are offering a special introductory price for their K4 program this year. Last year, we paid $840 for Kara to be in it. We were happy with that price because it includes everything that is needed for a successful school year. I was ASTOUNDED when I saw the introductory price of $350 for this year! That is an unbelievable bargain–practically a give-away for all that is included! There is information available about this introductory price at http://www.abekaacademy.org/K4Offer.html . I don’t know how long they will have this offer, but it is certainly a great opportunity for families wanting to try A Beka Academy.
We are looking forward to our new school year. The summer is going so quickly that it won’t be long before we break out those new books! If anyone would like more information about our A Beka Academy homeschool experiences, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Also, there is a clickable category on the homepage of this blog for Abeka Academy that will bring up the posts specifically about that topic.
