Jed’s moving up day early this month marks a milestone not just in his life but ours as a family as well. The awards definitely got us elated, especially so that we have never expected that he’ll receive any. The next program that our son is to take this coming school year is ABCs with Ace and Christi.
ABCs with Ace and Christi is School of Tomorrow’s learning to read program. It is a multisensory, phonetics program. Just like the former program our son graduated from (Preschool with Ace in Christi). This particular program is designed to prepare the student for the individualized instruction of School of Tomorrow’s program, which was formerly known as Accelerated Christian Education (ACE). ABCs with Ace and Christi is used after a child is diagnosed as “ready to read” using the Reading Readiness Test.
I am confident that my son is going to breeze through this program. The former program he was enrolled in was so good that he now knows how to read! Jed even now knows how to spell correctly, up to six letter words! I am one proud Mama Teacher, that’s true. It can easily surpass the feeling of sending out birth announcements of sorts. I am one privileged parent and I am thoroughly loving home schooling to bits.
I guess the purpose why we’ll get him enrolled in the ABCs with Ace and Christi program despite him knowing how to read already is for mastery and for him to practice his writing skills more. And it would be a little too early if he’d jump to Grade 1 right away anyway. He’d get to that later this year. 🙂
