For over forty years, schools have trusted A Beka Book to provide materials using the traditional approach proven successful throughout education’s history. A Beka curriculum is taught through illustrated textbooks and teaching aids, hands-on activities, challenging exercises, purposeful repetition, and the reinforcement of concepts to make learning interesting and memorable. The three-year-old material teaches children to recognize letter shapes and learn letter sounds. Activities include using finger paint, glue, crayons, and tracing practice. They will learn to sharpen their listening skills, follow directions, and practice eye-hand coordination as they learn number concepts 1-15. Children enjoy tracing pathways, doing dot to dot, and coloring large, simple objects on the skill sheets. They also develop motor skills while they paint, glue, and color projects with seasonal, Bible, and fun themes. A Beka is used in Calvary Day School’s lower school and has our three-year-olds fully prepared for the next stage of their education whether Calvary Day School or another parochial school.
