ELEMENTARY

K-2nd Grade Program

Bible time will be the start of the day for our K-2 students. Each morning after opening, students will be encouraged in their faith with a short devotion prepared especially for them. These devotions take different forms as the Lord leads, sometimes focusing on one piece of Scripture, a series on a Psalm, or a Biblical theme investigated through specific Bible stories and people.

 

In Health class our students will learn all about Nutrition through class discussions, activities, and food preparation. We will learn where the food we eat comes from and why nutritious food choices are beneficial. Students will explore the 5 food groups and learn how to incorporate them into their daily diet. We will have lots of hands-on fun too!  Students will learn kitchen safety while helping to prepare healthy foods. Using kid-safe kitchen tools we will make things like vegetable soup, fresh salad, and explore new fruits. 

Art students will be working from the Artistic Pursuits curriculum, which provides a solid introduction to the subject of art and various artists. Students will hear stories about master artists such as Renoir, Monet, and Pissarro while working with the mediums that these artists used. We will have fun exploring several types of art including painting, collage, and sculpture.

Students in Music class will engage in music performance through singing, movement, and percussion instruments. Children will use xylophones, Boom Whackers, vocal expression, and bucket drums to read and respond to music. Lessons will cover reading rhythm and melody, playing and identifying rhythm patterns, identifying the rise and fall of melodic lines, and playing and identifying melodic patterns on an age appropriate level.

 

 Our Physical Education class will focus on fitness being fun!  We will burn off energy and have a great time with others by incorporating different interactive games.  A portion of the games  include aspects from various sports for example: four-square, Frisbee golf, four-square volleyball, and doctor dodgeball. We will also incorporate general games and stretching that allow us to have fun and move our bodies. This class will be a great opportunity to exercise, develop team building skills, and have fun with our friends.

Our Art students will be working from the Artistic Pursuits curriculum. They will be exposed to different elements of art such as balance, rhythm, overlap, depth, proportion, and movement while completing various projects. Students will explore color through different mediums including watercolor, colored pencils, and other drawing materials.

 Fall 2019 will begin an exciting adventure in Music! We will experience music and cultures through world drumming. Students in grades 3rd-5th and 6th-8th will come together in this class to explore the sound and feel of rhythm through the drumming cultures of Africa and South America. The class will be divided into smaller groups, each learning to drum a different rhythm. Rhythmic lines are then played together as an entire drumming class for a stimulating and fascinating polyrhythmic experience. Suitable for students with a wide range of experience, including those with no experience in music.
