ABCs with Ace and Christi is an excellent thirteen-week, learning-to-read phonics program for students who test “ready to learn to read.” It is a well-organized program that uses animal stories to reinforce all the alphabet sounds. It also reviews alphabet sequencing and word relationships. Scripture passages support the phonics lessons, and stories illustrate Christian character traits. This program also utilizes various activities to help develop physical skills, small motor skills, and visual discrimination. ABCs with Ace and Christi provides students with all the tools needed to begin reading and to move into the individualized instruction of the first level A.C.E. PACE curriculum. While completing the program, students are also introduced to numbers and simple math skills.
The 12–15 week learning-to-read program includes:
A two-volume instructional manual with detailed easy-to-follow plans for each day—total of 900 pages.
Large Alphabet Sound Cards for display and review.
Tactile-Kinetic Cards to impact the shapes of letters in your child’s mind.
An Audio Song CD for reinforcement of 36 sounds and songs.
Small Alphabet Sound Cards for individual review by students.
Twelve PACEs each of Bible Reading, Word Building, and Animal Science, and three Math PACEs, all of which prepare the student for the self-instructional PACE program.
A Progress Report for objectively reporting your child’s progress.
A Reading Readiness Pre-Test and a Post Test to evaluate reading ability.
A special Diploma for the completion of the ABCs with Ace and Christi program.
After completing the Post Test with a perfect score, the student immediately begins English, Social Studies, Science, and Math PACEs.
Completing through PACE 1012 in each of these subjects concludes the average student’s Grade Level 1 experience.
