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.

 

Our Health Scouts will have a blast learning about health topics through story books and fun activities. The first semester they will cover a variety of topics including kindness, friendship, feelings, self esteem, and getting along with others. During the second half of the year topics will  focus on safety. Students will enjoy learning about community helpers, 911, stranger safety, weather safety, bike safety, and more. Students will create a Health Journal that will record their learning and serve as a great tool to review what they've learned over the year.

Art students will have fun learning and creating while being taught with the Artistic Pursuits curriculum in conjunction with creative projects. This program provides a solid introduction to the subject of art and various artists. Students will learn what artists do to create art, including imagining, observing, and creating. While creating their own works of art, students will explore various art materials including pastels, crayons, watercolors, chalk, and clay. Students will also hear stories about master artists and learn about ancient art found in places like caves, cathedrals, and pyramids. 

Students in Music class will actively engage basic music concepts through singing, playing games that reinforce lesson concepts, and playing instruments such as drums. tambourines, boom-whackers, handbells, and using drumsticks. We will learn music fundamentals such as beat versus rhythm, loud and soft dynamics, fast and slow tempos, high and low pitch, and counting basic rhythms including quarter notes, eighth notes, and rests. Students will work towards matching pitch while singing, and composing simple original melodies to play on pitched instruments.

 

 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 a combination of the Artistic Pursuits curriculum and art projects specifically chosen to enhance their learning. They will be exposed to different elements of art such as balance, rhythm, overlap, depth, proportion, and movement while completing various projects. Students will create art using various mediums including pencil, marker, watercolor, colored pencils, and other drawing materials. Many different techniques will be explored as well as artists and art history. 

 Music students will learn to play the recorder! We will use the fun and motivational curriculum, Recorder Karate, by Barb Philipak. No music experience is required. Students learn not only how to play and care for the recorder, but also how to read music and count basic rhythms. As we play our way through the book, students earn different colored “belts” that they can proudly display on the bell of their recorder foot joint. This program gets students playing quickly, and with the satisfying reward of successfully playing along with their peers, as well as to a wonderful CD accompaniment.
