The primary goal of Christian education consists of helping each student to grow into an independent person so that he/she can serve God according to His Word and is able and willing to employ all his/her talents to the honor of God and for the well being of his/her fellow creatures, in every area of life in which he/she is placed by God. Students will learn about God through the lives of the major characters throughout the entire Bible, and activities and ideas will help children comprehend and apply Bible truths.
Emphasis is on learning about God and his son Jesus through both the Old Testament and the New Testament stories.
Emphasis is on students’ involvement in a weekly worship environment with exposure to Biblical principles and application of those principles to daily life.
Emphasis is on memorizing one verse weekly based on the weekly theme in the classroom.
Students will enrich and extend their language and literacy. Teacher will expose student to language and literacy by showing an interest in their conversations, listening carefully and responding to statements, extending conversations, providing opportunities to read and discuss books and introducing specific vocabulary on topics of interest. Students will generate ideas, solve problems, and predict outcomes. Students speaking, reading, writing is a gradual process that is developed over time. Students will know the names of printed letters, sounds associated with printed letters, sequence letters, numbers, objects, or colors. Students will write one’s own first and last name. Student will be able to remember the content of spoken language for a short period of time. Students will see similarities and differences between visual symbols. Student will write isolated letters or words. Students will know how to put concepts, thoughts, and ideas into spoken words and understand others when they talk.
The student will represent and relate, and operate on whole numbers. Students will work initially with sets of objects focusing on the topics of subsidizing, counting and cardinality (Knowing the number names and the count sequence, understanding that the last number name said when counting a set of objects tells the number of objects counted, and comparing numbers); and operations and algebraic thinking (understanding addition as putting together and adding to, and subtraction as taking apart and taking from). The student will compare shapes and make sense of problems and persevering in solving them, reasoning abstractly and quantitatively, constructing viable arguments and critiquing the reasoning of others, modeling with mathematics, looking for and making use of structure, using appropriate tools strategically, attending to precision, and looking for and expressing regularity in repeated reasoning.
Students will have an opportunity to be exposed to the key primary science concepts and skills in the areas of physical science, life science, earth science, and investigation and experimentation. Students will develop their innate curiosity about their environment; broaden their critical thinking to investigate, solve problems, and make decisions.
Students will learn space, time and causal understandings from their families and communities. Students will develop a sense of place within their world. Student will recognize the critical role in previous learning that is anchored in the student’s language, family, and immediate world. Students will be provided with activities that focus on each individual’s uniqueness-home and family, classroom community, and neighborhood. Students will be exposed to dramatic play opportunities to explore and experiment with many roles from society. Students will focus on self-help skills, being part of a group, and classroom responsibilities which are essential in helping children to become contributing members of society.
This component includes children’s experiences, their expression, management of emotions, and their ability to establish positive and rewarding relationships with others. Children are more likely to succeed if they can: accurately identify emotions in themselves and others; relate to teachers and peers in positive ways; and manage feelings of anger, frustration, and distress when faced with an emotionally charged situation.
