We work on developmental skills every day with manipulatives that help us learn to make patterns, sort, classify, problem solve, and use critical thinking skills. We participate in a circle time each day to learn about the calendar, the weather, the pledge to our flag, share time, and an area of study for the day. Once a week we go to group chapel, home economics class, P.E., and art class. We have a very busy day, every day, and we will keep you informed with our weekly agenda in the student's folder each night. We introduce a letter of the week, from Aa to Zz. Children will enjoy creative projects that go along with each letter, and the letter sound is repeated many times throughout the lesson as we hear words that start with that letter. Activities include using finger paint, glue, crayons, and writing practice. Preschool Bible Stories We learn about God during Bible time each day. We discuss basic Bible stories that teach us about good character, wise choices, the many miraculous things God created and what He continues to do for us. We also learn simple Bible verses each week. Four-Year-Old Curriculum "We make it our goal to have all of our children prepared for kindergarten by the end of the year."

ABC - 123
This A Beka book introduces number concepts and the formation of numbers 1-20. Children enjoy counting and coloring familiar objects for each number and forming the numbers. Phonics-based reading readiness pages are full of carefully sequenced activities in recognition, sound, and formation of vowels (long and short), consonants, consonant-vowel blends, and one-syllable words of one or two vowels. Children color the pictures and complete the activities on a weekly basis.
A Beka Writing Tablet
The A Beka Writing Tablet is correlated with K4 curriculum. Students will be tracing and practicing letter formation on the colorful pages. Pages have activities that help with recognition, sound, and formation of vowels, consonants, blends, and one and two vowel words. We teach manuscript (print) writing.
As children learn vowels and consonants, we begin to teach them how to put them together. Our five-day four-year-old class will work hard to learn this new skill, which is a great boost to reading skills. Children climb up the ladder by "reading" the blends for every consonant they learn.
