Hi everyone! I found Abeka to be a lot of work, too, like Mom2Many. It was good, don't get me wrong, but I actually have one unique...umm...I'll call it a critique. I noticed they focus a great deal on writing cursive. I've also noticed that recent studies from collegiate students and professionals across the country, cursive writing is a dying art. It was invented because of the quill pen, and so is no longer needed, especially with the technology of today.

I'm sure they have good reason to teach Kindergartners cursive, but I don't think it will remain as relevant information for the kids when they grow up.

When I was homeschooled I used Alpha and Omegas switched On schoolhouse, mixed in with some of their book stuff, and all the SOS was on the computer which I liked since I loved computers. Only problem is, if you have a very technologically sound child, it can be easier for them to learn how to cheat. It was very good curriculum though, very educational and easy to understand.
