cheaper to be older/bigger

January 28th, 2008 at 05:57 pm

So in the hunt for my sons math book, (ordered on ebay, being shipped today I hope) I went through the list of all the programs I knew of and thought about what would be best for him to learn with. And while I picked Saxon for him, I do NOT want Saxon for my daughter..she needs pretty flowers and fun graphics on her work...she is younger still. Plus she really is in about the middle of the year for math, and stuck...improving on old skills, but not progressing forward.

I don't know why, but my next attempt to move her will be with a 'new book' It worked on GMC (though I hadn't planned it that way.) So my memory of options came up with Abecka or Horizons..two programs I recall having lots of pretty pictures on each work page (and being a bit umm easier). Fluff and filler may not be educational, but it is fun for kids.

Unfortunately no one on ebay is selling either...and I really don't want to pay full price...

Bringing up the is WAY cheaper for a kid to know more! GMCs math is cheaper merely because it is an older that I can find Abecka and Horizons in! But I can't find JCs level... Just like clothing, the stuff in your kids size is never the stuff on sale!

    Did you search on ebay for Abecka (as you have it spelled here) or Abeka? There are a few results for Abeka Math. I don't know what grade she needs, though.

    both, but thanks for reminding me about spelling..I will check amazon and Half for both too....

    Abeka materials are consumable so are very hard to find for early grades.
