Children in our Pre-Kindergarten Classes have either turned 5 over the summer or will be turning 5 in September or October.
Each week, children are taught Bible Stories, Bible Verses, and songs and participate in activities which emphasize good moral character qualities. Children enjoy acting out the stories and doing other games and activities that go along with Bible Stories.
Each week is centered on a theme. From there, crafts and art projects, book readings, activities, and games revolve around the the weekly theme. Some themes that we will cover during the year are: dinosaurs, space exploration, Australia, China, trees, leaves, animals in winter, butterflies and insects, penguins and polar bears, sea creatures, art appreciation, safety, snow & ice and more!
Every day, children participate in fun, hands on art and craft projects. Children enjoy cutting, gluing, painting, coloring, and creating.
Our program uses hands on discovery with experiments that correlate with our themes. We investigate properties of magnets, light, hibernation, migration, sink vs. float, fossils, seed dispersal, plant and insect parts, life cycles, seasons, plants and animals in different habitats etc.
Pre-K uses a combination of literacy programs: Frog Street Letter Song books and a portion of Jolly Phonics actions to teach letter recognition and letter sound association, phonemic awareness and rhyming activities, retelling information from a story, sequencing, comprehension, book awareness, environmental print and tracking print.
