What students learn with Abeka
Abeka has been successfully training young readers for more than 40 years, teaching basic reading skills using phonics. Our phonics approach isn’t just sight-reading that’s been garnished with phonics. It’s systematic. It’s thorough. And it works. With a solid foundation for developing exceptional reading skills, students begin reading actual words very early. Once they can read words, their newly acquired phonics skills are applied. They read character-building stories that correlate with the phonics concepts they have already learned. Our phonics program is reinforced with daily seatwork activities that include words with special sounds (phonics rules) and sentence comprehension. In fact, this phonics approach is carried through in all areas of classroom teaching. Our Kindergarten handwriting books, for example—Writing with Phonics K4 and Writing with Phonics K5—correlate with our basic phonics program to help students learn and review phonics as they practice correct writing formation. Cursive or Manuscript? Abeka offers you a choice in your approach to teaching penmanship. However, we have long observed that by starting with cursive writing rather than manuscript printing, students develop good writing habits from the very beginning. Either way, Kindergarten students learn to write in a matter of months with our approach—cursive or manuscript.
Abeka teaches the basics in counting, number recognition, and number concepts. Four- year-olds learn number concepts, before-and-after, and largest-and-smallest for numbers 1–20, as well as simple addition facts like 1 + 9. For five-year-olds, their mastery of numbers goes from 1 to 100. They count and write by twos, fives, and tens, and learn addition facts through the 10 Addition Family. They also learn money value, telling time, number words, and number sequence.
Four-year-olds begin to learn the basics of health and safety, while five-year-olds learn about themselves and the world around them with God’s World, our science book for K5. They’ll leave Kindergarten having already been introduced to God’s plan for seeds, animals, the seashore, health, weather, and seasons.
Four- and five-year-olds learn about community helpers and simple safety rules, the beginnings of American history, and children around the world. These studies include simple geography and an activity book for K5 students.
Abeka gives students opportunities for acting out drama and nursery rhymes featured during the activity time. They’re introduced to poetry. They participate in cutting, pasting, coloring, tracing, drawing, and working with various textures through art. Their writing readiness, eye-hand coordination, visual perception, listening and thinking skills all grow. As for music, four-year-olds enjoy singing from Fun Songs for Little Ones, while Song Time for K5 adds traditional, patriotic, and learning songs to the collection of music they love to sing.
Abeka’s Bible Program presents the Word of God in story form through our colorful Flash-a-Cards. K4 and K5 each have their own sets of cards and lessons, which flow from the heart of the teacher into the heart of the student. The detailed Curriculum Lesson Plans include daily lessons, preparation tips, Bible doctrinal drill, hymns and choruses, and Scripture memory to assist you in imparting a biblical worldview from an early age. Plus, Little Ones Sing unto the Lord and Sing unto the Lord give Kindergarten students a full slate of hymns and choruses to be used during Bible time and other times.
