KGRD Abeka Math Drill Plan

Abeka Math

Why Drill? Abeka 1, 2, and 3 are ADVANCED.  Also, since we don’t usually buy the teacher’s manual, we miss out on all the DRILL Abeka expects.  If you use our Saxon alternative syllabus, you DO use the teacher’s manual.  I thought that meant that Abeka accomplished in a workbook what Saxon did with a […]

Abeka 3 LSITS 90/10 Manual

3GRD

I call these the 90/10 manuals because once you’ve taught one math year, 90% of the teacher’s manual is unnecessary. However, there’s a 10% that is VITAL to your sanity.

Abeka Teacher’s Manuals Really Helpful
