Zeke is almost ready to graduate from Kindergarten.  In four more weeks he will have completed all his lessons.  Here is an example of a story that he can read from one of his A Beka readers:
Eat the big pie, Joe.
Smack! Smack! Smack!
Scat, cat.  Do not sniff the pie!
Scat!  Scat!  Scat!
Joe, do not spill the pie.
The bad cat did not eat the pie.
Joe ate it.
Today Mitch was doing Arithmetic with him.  Mitch said, "A bus stops and picks up one student, then stops and picks up two more students, then stops and lets one student off. How many are left on the bus?"  Zeke said "3."  Mitch explained the problem more, trying to help Zeke understand (1+2-1 = 2).  Finally, Zeke said, "But doesn't the driver count?"
