This is our first year homeschooling using the Abeka Academy. I was excited to use the DVDs thinking that watching them would help me better manage my time between kids.
We have homeschooled for years and I was really feeling like I did not have time to sit and work with them individually. I had figured that with a homeschool DVD curriculum, I would get a break from teaching and just be helping them.
However, it is not working that way. They really do not want to watch hours of videos. They are bored and would rather do just about anything else.
Even though I do not want to leave Abeka altogether, but I may try a more interactive computer-based curriculum next.
