5 Year Kindergarten

Bible

Bible is taught daily. Bible time is the most important time of the day. It includes Bible stories, memory verses, songs, and prayer. Students also attend chapel once a week with guest speakers, movies, musical presentations, and class presentations. It is our desire to encourage the students to grow spiritually as well as academically.

Reading

The kindergarten reading curriculum is phonetically based. Students begin by reviewing the sounds of vowels and consonants and progress to reading blends and words. The class is divided into groups in which students read a series of books that are suitable to their reading level. Each time a student finishes a book, they are able to take it home. Reading is the only subject in which homework is assigned.

Stories are also read to the class on a regular basis. Students will experience language through creating individual and group stories and books.

Writing

The writing curriculum makes writing easy for the children to learn. Students learn to make letter and number formations on special writing paper. The concept of "writing houses" helps in assisting the student to write. Knowing where each letter lives in the houses helps them to print correctly.

Math

Students will learn to count by 1's, 2's, 5's and 10's to 100. They learn the recognition and value of numbers 1 to 100. Addition, subtraction, measurement, money, and time are taught using flash cards, visual aids, counters, clocks, coins, and many other hands-on manipulatives.

Spelling

Spelling begins in the second semester of the school year. Spelling words consist of words that have phonetics rules that are being taught, as well as sight words and some number words.

Science

The science curriculum consists of lessons relating to the four seasons, weather, temperature, and much more. Students will learn how to appreciate Gods world.

Computers

The main objective for the preschool computer classes is to familiarize the students with the terms, proper care, and use of the computer. Students are introduced to each part of the computer and taught to respect and enjoy it, while learning not to fear or be intimidated by technology. Grade level appropriate educational software is utilized in every period to enhance the academic curriculum used in the classroom. The five year old curriculum builds on the preschool program. Proper care and use of the computer are stressed. The software focuses more on math and reading skills. In addition to the use of educational software, 5K students are taught a basic understanding of the purpose and use of the Microsoft Windows operating system in order to prepare them for a more in-depth use of Windows in the first grade.

Art/Music

All kindergarten students attend art and music classes. In art, student are allowed to be creative with their cutting, pasting, coloring, and painting. These art experiences help in developing good eye-hand coordination. In music, the children express themselves with movement, rhythm instruments and the special songs that they sing. They will learn songs that bring praise and worship to the Lord.
