Four and Five year-olds
Four and Five-year-olds begin Pre K! We continue with the Classical Education style and utilize the A Beka Curriculum. Your child will learn to break down long words into sounds, learn new words by combining or changing the sounds in words, and learn letter/ sound relationships. Children learn to build a sight word vocabulary which leads to greater reading comprehension skills and a much faster reading rate with improved accuracy. Kids have fun with computer software geared to children. Computer games and programs will enhance recognition of letters and numbers, improve word structure and spelling, and encourage art development. Your child will learn how to print letters in upper and lower case, and his or her language and listening skills will further improve with color words, shapes, animals, transportation, community helpers, and lessons in health, safety, good manners, and science. Number concepts 1 through 20 are taught, as is counting to 100. Basic addition, 1+1 through 1+9 is introduced, too. Children learn money (coins and bills) plus the days of the week and the entire calendar. We explore the Bible through Hymns, memory verses, and lessons such as Creation, Noah, Samuel, Daniel, the Boyhood of Jesus, Zacchaeus, and the Good Samaritan. Music and Art continue so your child can express themselves in their own unique way!
