We liked this program, but have switched to Saxon Math and Well Trained Mind curriculum, as it's a better fit for my daughter.

So, A Beka has their own series of reading books, like "Fun with Pets". They have quite a few. In the curriculum it will say "read 15 minutes of Fun with Pets" but you could read their book or read 15 minutes of whatever book you are reading then with your kids, whether it's McGuffey Readers or the Bob books. The consumables are the workbooks for writing. We still use the cursive book so DD is learning cursive that way.

I'm really interested but have not looked into this program much. Could you help me out and tell me if this is the right website and which of these items it would be? :
https://www.abeka.com/ABekaOnline/CatalogSearch.aspx

Is it the parent kit?

ETA: okay it won't let me link the search page but I put in first grade and a list came up.

OK, so the parent kit on their site include:

96946 Phonics and Reading 1 Home School Curriculum
95168 Letters and Sounds 1 Test Key
95354 Basic Phonics Charts
96962 Writing and Seatwork 1 Home School Curriculum
92231 Arithmetic 1 Home School Curriculum
75434 Arithmetic 1 Home School Charts and Games Book
92215 Arithmetic 1 Test & Speed Drill Key
47341 Arithmetic Drill Cards Set A

This binder does not have the two test keys, or the basic phonics charts, or the charts and games book or the drill cards.

It does have the curriculum it lists out - Arithmetic, Phonics, Writing and Seatwork, and also has the Language, Spelling and Poetry curriculum. There are 170 lessons in each of these, broken down so you can do them in a year.

We don't do tests so we didn't need those, and I made my own alphabet cards to hang on the wall.

Hope this helps!
