Okay. I am thoroughly overwhelmed! I am contemplating starting to use the Abeka curriculum for my Kindergartener and 2nd Grader.
Up until now, I have just been using a hodge-podge of various workbooks and other teaching aides. But when I went to Abeka's website, I don't know if it's just that I am completely brain-fried right now, but I can't figure out how their programs work. On their online catalog, it shows a list of items I can buy and their prices. Some items say "optional". Okay. My question: If I buy the Children's Kit and Parent's Kit for each grade level that I need (K & 2), will that come w/everything I need to teach my child except for the optional items? OR do I need to buy the kits PLUS each of the items listed? Argh! What do I do? I don't know for sure if I want to use them, but I would def. love more info! Also, does anybody have a pic of one of Abeka's lesson plans, so that I can see how it's regimented?
