All of our A Beka Academy materials have arrived! That didn't take long. The fun begins for some of us...others tend to get overwhelmed by this. No need to get overwhelmed.
It is tempting to rip open all of the boxes and set all of those books free BUT...
It is less stressful and more productive to start by opening one box at a time, removing the books, cutting away the shrink wrap, pulling out that all important book list that's located at the bottom of each box. Use that list for inventory purposes. Check off each individual item that is enclosed. Don't skip this part.
I repeat ~ Inventory your books to verify that all items are enclosed.
Take your time, there's no hurry. There are a lot of books to check off the list. If you have more than two children in the program, this could take several hours. Take a break if need be but take the time to do this.
If you do find any materials missing, contact A Beka Academy immediately. Missing items reported after 60 days will not be replaced, so it is important to take the time to do this as soon as the shipments arrive. Correcting the problem is just a phone call away.
Don't get rid of any of the boxes that the DVDs are packed in. They have to be returned in their original boxes.
After the inventory is complete, give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done. It is time to move onto the next step, which I will save for another blog post. That's enough for today. There's no need to be overwhelmed.
