Take advantage of your child’s inquiring mind and teach him that learning is fun! This simple, logical phonics system helps your child find success immediately so that he can quickly become an independent reader of little books that hold his interest. Kit includes all of the child’s essential textbooks and supplies for phonics, reading, manuscript writing (printing), and numbers—24 items total. Combined with the K4 Parent Kit (manuscript), which provides the curriculum and main teaching aids, you can provide your 4-year-old the knowledge and learniing habits he needs for a strong foundation in academics and character development.
· Phonics—Your child will enjoy carefully sequenced activities that will teach him his vowels, consonants, blends, one-vowel words, and two-vowel words. The A Beka method has produced thousands of successful readers for more than half a century!
· Reading—Building on this foundation of phonics, by second semester your child will actually be reading little books!
· Manuscript writing—From tracing the letters to writing them on his own, your child will be taught to neatly print his letters as he carefully forms each “ball” and “stick.” The “houses” with upstairs, downstairs, and basement guide your child in the size and placement of each letter. As he carefully forms his letters, he will learn the character qualities of neatness and caring about his work.
· Numbers—Your child will love the numerous counting and coloring activities that teach him number concepts and formation of numbers 1–20 and counting up to 100. Adding 1 to a number acquaints him with how numbers work.
