In Kindergarten through 2nd grade, teachers will spend a lot of time on early literacy skills, helping students build a strong foundation in reading and writing for later success in school.
In math, students build not only fact fluency, but also number sense through engaging and hands-on activities. This prepares them for more complicated problem-solving as they progress through the curriculum. In Bible class, students will study both Old and New Testament stories that point to God’s faithfulness to his people. They will study the life of Jesus, and they will be taught to recognize His love for them and that He desires a relationship with each of them personally.
Content is often delivered through thematic units. This helps students explore literacy, math, science, and social studies concepts simultaneously. They will be taught to make connections between what they are learning and the real world.
Early elementary is an exciting time, and as students participate in their classes each day, teachers also intentionally work to help students to grow socially and emotionally, developing interpersonal skills and self-discipline that will help them throughout their lives.
